737 Start

Recommended Posts

In the 737-800 is the procedure to wait for max motoring before engaging the fuel levers or do pilots do it at 20% n2 instead of waiting.

Thanks for the reply. I pretty much always fly delta in all of my planes so if anyone knows the dal procedures I would appreciate that. The thing I dont like about having to do max motoring is the engine startup sound isnt long enough to reach max motoring, thus taking away from the realism.

That's one of the compromises of simming, so don't feel bad about lighting them off at 20%.
