Engine start with APU

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I looked for an answer in the forum, but I could not fine a precise answer.

How exactly do you do to start the engine with the APU and do the preflight with the external power.

 

The idea is to do the preflight with the external power and, before push, switch on the APU to start the engine during pushup. This is how I did things before getting FS2Crew.

Would you know what the exact procedure is ?

 

Thanks !

Hi,

 

There does not seem to be a "APU/EXT" option?

 

I tried as described in the manual, but no success, the configuration does not update to APU - did someone actually try it successfully?

If so, when exactly do we need to start the APU?

I started it before the pusback/engine start request and made sure the bleed was on.

 

Thanks for your help,

Any time prior to engine start if not using external air.

Hi,

 

Am I missing something, because it does not work here - I turned on the APU before the "before start procedure", turn on the APU bleed, disconnected external air and power.

I checked the control panel and it did not switch to "APU".

 

Thanks for your help,

It's our answer to GSX... "Ultimate Ground Crew X".

 

We're still working hard on it... human animations are not easy.
