RE: Anchoring Kills

If you stay ahead of your airplane (or your boat) and aware of what's happening around you and you use ALL of the tools at your disposal to stay safe....then that seems to be a good thing.

How do you know if you are ahead or behind when your only training is "Switch Position" instead of the "old fashioned" complete systems build up?

Way back in the 70's any crewmember on the "friendly bus line" could draw the basic electrical , basic fuel ,basic hyd ,basic bleed air use systems fro memory.

That died in the 90's with Switch Position IN , and aircraft knowledge OUT.
