Picking up 163CD

I forgot to mention something amusing about the MFD checklists. After playing with the MFD enroute, I thought I would give the checklist function a try. As you scroll through the items, they are automatically checked off as done. So, on the shutdown checklist, I believe the second item is “turn off avionics.” This, of course, shuts down the MFD and the shutdown checklist dissapears. Good joke, I thought as I dug out the Wings Aloft checklist. By the way, I have learned that the pilot who took me through the flight portion of the acceptance process was a Cirrus employee and not a Wings Aloft instructor-in-training as suggested in my last post.
