Engine thrust settings

Recommended Posts

I have just noticed while programming the FMCU with the MD11, all references to engine thrust are indicated as EPR rather than N1. All the documentation refers to N1 thrust. How do I change the settings to N1 instead of EPR?Andrew

Andrew,This depends on the MD-11 aircraft you have selected to fly. Aircraft with GE engines use N1.Aircraft with PW engines use EPR.

Hi Andrew:Engine Thrust Ref's are generally down to engine manufacturer. Some like to use the EPR as their reference others N1. If i recall correctly, PW and RR like to use EPR, whereas GE tend to use N1.Try changing to a model with different engines...CheersPaul
