Crew Briefing

Message read at the start of the flight, before the checklists are read. Captain

Speed check

When the Pilot Flying (PF) makes flap calls the Pilot Not Flying (PNF) will sometimes say Speed Check to indicate that he has double-checked the PF’s call, and to confirm that setting the flaps will be within the safety margins for the aircraft. Co-pilot

Altitude Alert (1 to go) The Altitude Alert (One to go) is called by the PNF when the aircraft climbs (or descends) to within 1000 ft off the Autopilot setting. Co-pilot

A note on Altimeter calls

When the aircraft passes the transition altitude of an airport (either descending or climbing), the barometer settings of the altimeter should be changed. In some cases, this will occur while the climb or descent checklists are run, in which case the Altimeter call will be made in the checklist. Otherwise, the call will be skipped in the checklist, and instead played when you actually pass the transition altitude.
