View Full Version : Below-the-line. What's that?

I've heard pilots saying "below the line" before takeoff on a cockpit video.
Does anyone know what that means?

On many checklists, there is a line separating 'final itms' that are done just before the completion of an evolution. On the 727, for example, the pre-takeoff checklist is done 'to the line', then the 'final items' (landing lights, transponder, couple of switches) are below the line and done after takeoff clearance is received and the aircraft is taxieng onto the runway. Hope this helps.
