Baltic Aviation Academy’s series of reportages guiding people to know better the aircraft controls are continued. This week Pranas Drulis, ATPL integrated student, explains what does it mean ‘Cold and dark’ in aviation. It will be shown how to start-up an airplane from the very beginning. Get a little preview before your type rating trainings!


  1. Can someone please tell me what those black and white wheels are on either side of the throttle controls? Are they used to set the aircraft's trim?

  2. I have a question. You appeared to be executing a "rolling takeoff," meaning your aircraft was rolling down the runway as you looked down at your checklist to ensure the before takeoff checklist was completed. Isn't this advised against as "not looking where you are going" is a safety hazard in any situation?

  3. Pranas Drulis, ATPL is clearly a product from a flight academy that never entered a military aircraft, a type of aviation that makes what is done in civil aviation a piece-of cake, a type of aviation that those who have spent all their careers in can't really appreciate how "piece" and how "cake" it is.

    The "thoroughness" and monochord non-emphatic voice of Mr. Pranas Drulis, ATPL, intersperse with some blatant inaccuracies (…an IRS system does not tell where an aircraft is currently located until itself has been told where it first was by a subsidiary or integrated original fix input…) make him a very suitable candidate for a fast-track into TRI/TRE levels in his organization, due to the clueless appreciation of modern day companies for this type of "product" (…"if he talks and acts like the CEO he must be perfect for the job, right…?"…)

    Pranas Drulis, ATPL and that clueless appetite for "form-over-substance" by companies is the reason why, without you, the general traveling public, even knowing about it, in spite of flying having become objectively increasingly safer each passing year in the last decades, it has also been planted with the seed that might suddenly make it become less so in the next ones.

  4. ☆Hi .

  5. I would love to meet the very beautiful and Sexy
    Guy doing the talking
    and give him an excellent
    blow job and suck his big
    Dick and suck his ball's
    and swallow his sweet
    Cum drink his sweet piss and lick and suck his sexy
    Tight butt hole and rim him
    good yes I am a guy

  6. It does not matter the intention of a video. It is vital to always demonstrate solid Checklist culture. The use of a CL is so important that one should not bitter from the discipline of using one, especially at the ATPL level. The memory items are good but with a CL one is safer and better organized… Eg. He put 2,000ft in the MCDU but initial climb in the FCU to 4,000 ft. Before, engines were started up but the APU was not taken offline. Checklist, checklist,checklist checklist…
