    • Batteries
    • Avionics Master 1 & 2
    •      Verify batt voltages and temps
    •      Min batt voltage for APU start is 23.5V
    •      19V for GPU start
  4. Establishing Aircraft Power
    External Power:

    Verify illumination of GPU AVAIL caption on the GPU button

    GPU Voltage - Checked (26-29 volts on MFD Electrical Page)

    GPU Button - ON

    • APU Power
    • If External Power is NOT available and Battery voltage is <23.5 Volts, refer to E/A [MISC] for Main Battery Recharge Procedure.

    • Min Batt Voltage for APU start:
    •   - 23.5V for Battery start
    •   - 19V for a GPU start

    (Battery voltage can only be verified when the GPU is not supplying power to the aircraft)
  5. APU Starting Sequence
    • If starting APU using Battery Power
    •  - Avionics Master 1 & 2 - OFF

    • Fuel Pump - ON
    •  - PUMP SEL set to 2A, 2B, or 2C
    •  - (If crossfeed required, then TANK 1 PUMP PWR must be selected ON and the XFEED selected to LOW 2)

    APU Bleed - Closed

    If AHRS is NOT initialized, wait until AHRS 1-2 ALN message is presented on EICAS (AH-900)

    • APU Master Knob - ON
    •  - Wait a min 3 secs or until EGT dashes disappear, whichever occurs later

    APU Master Knob - START

    If starting on battery power, Avionics Master 1 & 2 - ON after the EICAS "APU GEN OVLD" caution message extinguishes

    Verify proper APU GEN voltage and current on the MFD

    *Wait 3 mins after start before opening the APU Bleed Valve

    • APU Bleed - OPEN or CLOSED
    • Both Packs - ON or OFF
    • XBLEED - OPEN or AUTO
    • Shed Buses - AUTO or OVRD
  6. FMS Initialization (Prior to EVERY Flight)
    • FMS - ON
    • (Go do Exterior Preflight Inspection)

    • Check Initial Position
    • Check the Nav Database Expires Date (0901Z)
    • Press ACCEPT LSK
    • Set-up the UNILINK Page
    • Send and verify FOB for EWBS
    • Check "FMS NAV MODE" and "Q" Value (below 10)
    • Verify Predictive RAIM (if required, prior to gate departure, flight plan must be loaded first)
  7. Detailed Exterior Preflight Required When?
    • First flight of the day
