Eject light?

Recommended Posts

hello all. The eject light that flashes...what is it? What does it mean? And should I try to turn it off?

 

Thanks.

There's an eject light?  :o  Where, Kevin? Screenshot?

 

Must be pointing at the Warp Core. :ph34r: Nah, seriously, where is it?

It is the ELECT light... as in something wrong with the aircraft's electrical.

In Hawker parlance, these are known as "look up" lights. The electrical and hydraulic warning lights (and some others) on the master warning panel in the main panel have upward-pointing arrows, telling the pilot to "look up" (at the overhead panel) to see what the actual problem is.

I am having the same issue - dont know how to turn it off..... I tried the STBY INV switch in multiple scenarios to no joy....

What electrical annunciator panel lights are shown on the overhead panels? Once they are all off the Elect light turns off.

Turn on the two ALTERNATOR switches on the left side of the overhead panel. Carenado has misconfigured these switches to turn the main engine generators off and on. In reality, these switches only control the electrical power source for the heated cockpit windows.

 

Although many of the clickable overhead panel switches appear to have no function in the sim, to emulate actual Hawker procedures, You should set the overhead switches as folows:

 

Before engine start: Fuel Boost pumps on. Engine Computers on. Ignition on. Main Inverters on: Standby Inverter OFF. (Should actually be ARM, but doing so causes a false "STBY INVERTER" caution light.)

 

 

After start: Generators on. Start Master off. Alternators on. Screen Heat on. Pitot Heat on. Ignition off. This should give you a clear master warning panel, with no lights, except "APU On"

 

In real ops, Hawker pilots would typically take off with the APU running, with APU generator off, and bleed air ON, but the underlying reason for doing this is not simulated in the Carenado Hawker, so probably best to turn the APU off after engine start.

 

Finally: After takeoff, turn Main Air Valve switches on: This turns on the engine bleed air supply for cabin heating and pressurization.

Elect light... Darn auto correct... If there was an eject light then there are some real issues! :-)
