Worst Infinite Flight habits

What are some of your guys’ worst IF habits?

Some of mine include:

  • forgetting to arm LNAV -_-
  • Turning on strobes at the gate
  • forgetting to start up my other engines when taxiing
  • Forgetting to turn on and off landing lights
  • Leaving APU on (@Canadian_Aviator and @Tsumia)
    Forgetting to turn on and off seatbelt signs (@GameBoy_KIRB)

Ex:

I did this just now 😑

Arming VNAV then forgetting about my flight altogether until getting uncomfortably close to a violation.

I need to set alarms for descent, yeesh.

And of course leaving my APU on., but there’s no real consequence, one more thing to press after landing, no thank you.

Forgetting to tune out of a unicom frequency during an over night long haul and getting woken up at 4 AM to “Delta 419 is 10 nautical miles to the East at 6,000ft will make right traffic for runway 6R”

haha lol, ironic. That’s not my callsign though so. (I know you weren’t referring to me it was an example)

My worst habit is oversleeping on a long haul after a massive tailwind pushes ahead the ETA but I can avoid that now. I also tend to fall asleep during decent and get violations.
