How do you cause a compressor stall?

Recommended Posts

We know the PMDG 777 simulates compressor stalls. My question is, short of activating the failure, how do you cause one? Flying through heavy ice storms? Flying backwards? Can you trigger the compressor stall without actively turning it on via FMC?

Not sure if PMDG went this deep but a rolling takeoff is recommend in high crosswinds to reduce the chance of a compressor stall, anyway basically anything that can disrupt the airflow to the engine can cause a stall.

One reason why I always do a rolling takeoff, my engines are going through 40% as I'm lining up and I'm roaring down the runway the second we are aimed down the center line. That thrill never gets old.

A compressor stall is modelled in the failures, but are those the actions that could trigger one in FSX?
