Resetting Circuit Breakers
There are some changes in our procedures coming soon, weeks, months or years depending how good your company is at doing its operations manual revisions. The background is IAW recent guidelines issued by the FAA (FSAW 00-08, FSAT 00-07 and ALPA Letter) to enhance safety and reduce the potential for in flight electrical problems or smoke.
You will all get to see it in it's company form at some point. What we are looking at is:
reset of a tripped fuel pump CB is a big No No.
A ground reset should only be carried out after maintenance has checked the thing out and say it's safe to do so.
Christ ! hope it's not the coffee pot.
