Could someone give me the 737 Flight Manual citation for closing the flight deck air vents during the postflight. Thanks.

Just trying to figure out why everytime I get on the plane both vents on both sides are closed. Plane's been sitting in the hot sun for an hour or more with ground air, but it's useless because all the vents are closed. Figured there must be a checklist somewhere I don't know about that says to close these before you leave the plane since they are always closed. I haven't gotten on a plane yet this summer where they are not. I guess what I'm saying is this: open the freakin vents before you leave the plane. Thanks.

This is not a matter to be discussed on FI, this is a matter you should bring up with your therapist

Submit an ASAP report and then file a greivance. THEN come to FI with it.

It's right next to the part that says put the seat all the way up before you exit the aircraft.

. . . and after the section that says leave your nasty chew-spit cup on the flight deck.

She told me I had to stop imagining that I was a pilot. It wasn't good for my long-term mental health. And besides, there was no future in it.

Who in the ******************** uses ground air? That stuff is worthless. Run the APU and the packs, you will get max cooling that way. Stop subsidizing your company and its bonuses trying to save fuel all the time!

Just curious ... is a leprechaun flying the next leg of the flight?

Right from Section 2-6.5:

Flight Deck Air Vents-----------------Whatever position strikes your fancy

crj567....

You are a genius...I feel better every time I have the chance to read your pearls of wisdom.....NOT!

Get back to doing the flying that my company pays for your $SS to do!

Mucho!
Tanker,
While I agree about your first comment regarding crj567. The second portion of your comment is not as clear. Now do you mean the flying that "your company" pays YOU to do too? Just checking that's all.

right after you left the crew room the other day, the rest of us all agreed to close the vents prior to handing off the aircraft because we all think you are a tool

Yea, you're just like all the rest....
All the pilots were disloyal. They were always fighting me. If the crew wanted their shirt-tails out, they'd let them. Take the tow line ... defective equipment. But they began spreading wild rumours about flying in circles, - - and then "Old Yellowstain". I was to blame for Maryk's incompetence. Maryk was the perfect pilot, but not Queeg. But the strawberries, that's where I had them. I proved with geometric logic that a duplicate key to the icebox existed. I could have produced that key. They were protecting some pilot ... Naturally, I can only cover these things from memory. If I've left anything out, just ask me specific questions - - and I'll be glad to answer them one by one.
And I would have too, if they hadn't adjourned the court prematurely. Some kind of plot, I guess....
