We're using our simulator more at university, and while I might try to do a departure briefing (weather, route, etc.), it ends up fairly unstructured. None of us students have any formal qualifications and we are doing this for enjoyment, although we are keen to do it as authentically as possible.
FAA has an example online, that I gather is maybe be a bit overdone:
I've searched around for a recommended (check)list to go through for pre-departure briefings, but come out empty handed.
Is there such a document endorsed by either the EASA or the FAA?
