Question about ground power

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Im just wondering can you have ground power available when you load the sim instead of selecting it in the FMC? I did a search on the manuals and I didn't find anything. Thanks.

Sure. Set up the conditions you want then save the panel state. Panel states are discussed in the intro.

If you want to load cold and dark then save a flight in that state and load it next time you start FSX. I have mine set up on ground air/power at gate D-10 KIAH ready for preflight. The difference between the FSX save and load method and the panel state method is the FSX save also saves a panel state but you load at the saved location. With the panel state method you start from free flight anyplace and then load the panel state to get the configuration you want. Your preference.

Hammer, read the introduction. It discuss holding down the cdu menu key to turn it on in a powered down state.
