APU, GSX and Engine startup problem

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

This is definitely a stupid question, however, after finishing both pmdg tut again and, browsing the web, I still don't know the answer.

 

I want to use the pmdg with my recently acquired copy of GSX.

I'm not able to fo a full dark and cold rub, so I use the default state.

However, gsx requires engines to be off (which I do with the cutoff switch and the apu generator bus to on.

 

However, to commence push l, I have to switch on the apu. This however doesn't start for me, which also results somehow in me not being able to even start the engines :|.

 

Is there something else that has to be switched from the engine off state, to be able to start it?

 

Could you guys help me?

 

Vkr

Vic

I would suggest using the Short Turn panel state instead. This starts you in exactly the configuration GSX wants, engines off and APU running. You only have to load a flight plan, close some doors and remove the chocks and you are good to go.

 

Cold and dark isn't difficult to learn but short turn is more typical for a crew arriving at the plane.

Yes the short flight state. Long gives you more preparation to do.
