Bleedair from shutoff engine

Recommended Posts



On my short flight today I noticed following problem: After landing I shut the engines off, and was running on the APU for a few minutes. Then I connected groundpower and shutoff the APU. However, I noticed that the packs-audio is still running. Cycling Q didn't help, so I searched for the cause.


A brief look at the air-page showed the following:





As you can see, the engine is shutoff, however the bleedair-valve is still open.


On the overhead panel you can see the engine R ENG switch doesn't show "OFF".






This is the first time I experienced this. It worked fine on the previous flights as far as I can remember.


Best regards,

Okay, not a bug, just me not beeing used to service based failures. The right bleedair valve failed in the open position. The sound I was hearing where the recirc fans. Lesson learned.


It's not a bug, it's a feature!
