IOS 14.2 Now Approved
Pilots are now approved to update their iPads to IOS 14.2. As always, we suggest not updating during a trip. This is a large update that requires a WIFI connection.
After the update if you do not see a Verizon connection or account in settings, just reboot your iPad again, and the account will again be available.
December 18th Compliance Date Please
Below the Line
Remember, as soon as your doors are closed, and exits armed, you can go "Below the Line" on the before start checklist, then turn on the Beacon.
There is no requirement to wait for the
OK TO PUSH for this.
When you do get the OK TO PUSH, call for pushback, and let the FO enter and confirm the the T/O data during the pushback. The Capt can follow along and verify the data as well.
As soon as it is all entered and verified, it's time to start Eng #1.
Avoid the temptation to always complete Aerodata Takeoff Data entries at the gate, unless it arrives early.
Please Don't delay the PUSH for the DATA Entry.
Feel free to contact me with any other topics you would like to see discussed here on BlueBrief.
BlueBrief on Mobile
If you view BlueBrief on a small mobile device it is best to use the Chrome Browser. The stock Android browser and sometimes iPhone Safari, will not properly format the screens, etc.
Safari on the iPad seems to work just fine.
