Your FOM, FCOM, NOTAMS, etc - Always have priority over BlueBrief info.
Believe it or not, it's time to start looking at this App again. HOTs is now fully FAA Approved to be our primary source of completing the Deicing Process and determining Holdover Time.
When you get a little free time, look it over. It has just been updated and pushed to your iPad.
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.
