Memory items

Do not you think Oxy is a very important memory item that is not included
in the memory items list?

Also the unreliable speed above 10000 ft does not clearly say that it should only be used during climb and not cruise.

Loss of braking is another issue because of the loss of nose wheel steering
if memory items followed.

Two more...

Two more...

Stall and Stall on Takeoff....

I'm thinking it's a total of ten memory checklists. K-Skywalker listed seven. Pilot Incapacitation is eight. The two listed above make ten.

The Stall and Stall on Takeoff are new.

Tailpipe fire is not one of them....but, I fell it could/should be....as mentioned.

Fly safe,

W- Windshear Ahead & Windshear (2)
E-Emer Descent
T-Tcas
L-Loss of Braking
U- Unreliable speed
G- eGpws
S-Stall warning at lift off
S-Stall
C-Crew Incapacitation...

Another less appropriate way to remember them is: Pilot Wagesluts

Pilot (incapacitation)
W (windshear ahead)
A (actual windshear)
G (EGPWS)
E (emergency descent)
S (stall)
L (loss of braking)
U (unreliable airspeed)
T (TCAS)
S (stall on takeoff)

might work for those with a mind not indifferent to mine...

Old thread I know, but given the changes over the last decade, I now use:

GUTLESS.W
(Gutless Wonder, American slang often cited in Westerns)

GPWS/EGPWS Warnings and Cautions
Unreliable Speed
TCAS
Loss of Braking
Emergency Decent
Stall Warning
Stall at Lift off
Windshear and Windshear Ahead

Nice one! I will share it to my American fellas.
Even better now that Windshear Ahead is not a memory item anymore.

I use this one: W.EGGS.SLUT.
Windshear Warning
Emergency Descent
GPWS/EGPWS Cautions
GPWS/EGPWS Warnings
Stall Recovery
Stall Warning at lift off
Loss of braking
Unreliable Airspeed Indication
TCAS Warnings.

Alternatively another great way to remember these if you're not an acronym person, use a flow pattern on the cockpit instruments.

For example, if you're a LHS pilot, from left to right:

Airspeed Indicator: Unreliable Airspeed, Stall Warning at lift-off, Stall Recovery
VSI: TCAS
Wind indicator on the ND: Windshear
TERR on ND switch: EGPWS warnings, EGPWS cautions
FCU: Emergency Descent
Anti-skid/NWS switch: Loss of Braking

What does this mean - if you get a TCAS or a GPWS, or in the middle of landing rollout realize you have no braking, you're supposed to open the QRH?

I’m a big fan of Acronym but I must say this trick is pretty good too. Thank you for sharing!

How is that possible??? You get a TCAS RA you are supposed to be like: Hang on! Let’s get the QRH first instead of flying the plane?! Lol. Surely you apply the memory items first then maybe check the QRH right? Memory items are procedures to be taken without any delay. I’m curious to know the logic behind it.

At this point, I've given up on asking questions. Stupid doesn't begin to describe it, but I'm just a regular line pilot.

It's not important to remember how many items of memory are there. Any mnemonics will do. But all the actions required to be executed under each one of them is what saves the bacon. Those must not be forgotten.

Totally agree with you Vilas. Unfortunately many instructors still love to ask these kind of questions like: How many memory items? What are they? Or like what is the max EGT for engine start? In my head I’m like: Just look at the EWD.

Those are certainly odd questions pineteam. I completely agree with vilas. Knowing how many or what they are isn't as important as knowing how to execute them properly.

Only poor instructors ask those type of questions. I feel sorry for any professional that has to deal with such poor training Captains.
