747-400 Standard Operating Procedures

The endeavour of the manufacturer, as a seller, is to present the customer with an efficient means of commercial transportation, not complicated, in terms of maintenance or flight operations. Therefore the manufacturer usually presents the minimum procedures required by an experienced and trained crew. However, in practice, we have to supplement the manufacturer’s recommended procedure and adapt it to our environment.

The Air India Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are designed to streamline operational procedures. They provide the crew with a step-by-step guidance for carrying out their tasks in a safe & predictable manner.

These SOPs clarify line procedures, but do not replace the information contained in the Airplane Flight Manual and such documents. The SOPs should not be over-shadowed by inter personal relations or other peripheral issues which tend to affect the safe conduct of a flight.
