Hello Jeff,I actually asked Captain Dave Barrington that same question, because in the PMDG 737 version of FS2Crew you have the option to leave the APU on if the weather is looking rough.This what Dave said (copied and pasted from an email):> Are there any situations where you'd want to leave> the APU on for taxi and> takeoff?Low Vis procedures may be a good idea but is notessential, otherwise on the 767 I can't think of anyother time.So there you go. Dave has something like 20,000 plus hours in the 767, so I'll take his word for it.Cheers,Bryan

I really appreciate his effort in the making FS2Crew 767 a fabulous add-on, but he's GOTTA think we're a bunch of dorks...I know my wife thinks I'm a absolute geek... My 12 yr old son has his PS2. et al. in the same room as my computer, and he makes fun of the FA all the time.James
