OK, hands up anyone who hasn't had a door open during take-off! Makes me recall first Examiner encountered, asking if he could hold the door open while I prepared for take-off, on an exceptionally hot day. Is that a standard trick?
Skills test. Pre take off brief.

"Oh, and could you give your door a good slam please, that one tends to open in flight"

"It's fine"

"No, really"

:roll: "if you insist"
5 minutes and 500' later.
"You carry on, the noise is just my door, I'm going to have to open it and slam it, it's going to get noisier"

" don't worry, I'm used to it, I'll stop this climbing turn, and fly wings level till it's sorted"
