Interactive Checklists

Overview

The flyPad's interactive checklists help you ensure not to forget important steps in your procedure.

The flyPad checklists are modelled after the official Airbus checklist. You can also download this checklist here: Checklist and SOP.

A Checklist is Not a Procedure List

Checklists are meant to ensure that the most critical aspects of a procedure are not forgotten and double-checked. Checklists are not used as a step-by-step guide to configure the aircraft. This is what so-called "Standard Operation Procedures" are meant to describe.

Find the A32NX SOP here: Checklist and SOP.

Manual Mode

In this mode you will check the items by either clicking on the checkbox or the green button on the bottom saying "Mark item as complete".

If a checklist has all items checked you can click on the bottom on the bottom saying "Mark checklist as complete" to mark the whole checklist as done.

Autofill Mode

In the flyPad Settings under Realism you can configure the "Autofill Checklist" setting so that some steps are marked as completed automatically by watching the corresponding button, knob or switch.

It will not autofill all possible steps automatically by design as the flight crew needs to actually check certain steps deliberately or if the required state is not similar in any situation. E.g. Parking Brake is not always required when using chocks.

For the autofill option to work properly you need to go through the lists one by one as the system only autofills the lists corresponding to the current flight phase.

API for Check Action

If you want to map the "Mark item as complete" button to a hardware button of your controller you can use this local variable to do so:

LVAR:A32NX_EFB_CHECKLIST_COMPLETE_ITEM

Set this variable to 1 to advance a step. It will be reset to 0 automatically.

For this to work you need a solution which is able to map controller functions to events and variable. See our API Documentation.
