Just to clarify the Airbus "TO Config" test, Iceman is correct - the warning will only occur when the thrust levers are placed in the Flex detent (with no flex temp inserted). If you select TOGA, there will be no warning.

Also I think PJ2 ought not to have included the parking brake in his list - the warning for it only comes on when takeoff thrust is selected. This allows the TO Config test to be done with the parking brake set - clever, what?
