After start flow....who takes care of the start levers?

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan,just a little question concerning the confusing "before start / after start" flow: the FO shuts down the start levers during the "receiving aircraft" flow. Does the captain turn them back on before starting the engines? It says in the flow manual, that the FO handles the start levers during the "after start" flow again. What is the sense in the FO touching those levers after starting up the engines? Ingo
