Default QRC vs Memory Items

Hey guys,

I know United tried some time ago in the past going to QRC and dumping the Memory items paradigm. I was wondering if that is still in use? Also, if it is, what and how does your airline go about that.... i.e do you keep a laminated copy in the plane or do you just keep a different type of paper readily accessible in your flight manual etc...?

What do you think of that vs. the memory items method....?

Thx!

Schone,

I don't work for UAL, but did work for ACA/Independence and we moved from memory items to a QRC during my time there...

I liked the QRC so much that it was one of the first things that implemented at my new job after I was hired. (We're part 91, so we can do just about anything we want checklist wise).

We keep two copies of the QRC laminated and in the cockpit.

Both the commuter I worked for previously and the major I work for now did away with the memory items for emergencies and went with one laminated Quick Reference Card between the pilots on the glare shield. Much better.

At the cargo outfit I work for, we have both. The "Phase Ones'" are built into the emergency check-list if one is required. They are reviewed/confirmed when the QRH (Red Tabs) are complied with.

QRC is still in use at UAL. There are a couple memory items still present that you do even before reference to the QRC, things like "Oxygen mask on 100%, crew communication establish" for a rapid d. Other than that it's all on the QRC, which is kept on the back side of the regular checklist in a holder on the glareshield.

I believe that research has shown that less mistakes are made when using a QRC versus straight memory items. I like it.

At CAL we have a few memory items for the 737 (I cant speak for other fleets) but they are all short and simple.
