Aux Fuel Pumps

Recommended Posts

Greetings.

 

I've been flying the C404 in FSX for several hours now, and overall, I like it. I'm aware of the OAT gauge issue (The lack thereof - I also emailed them about it along with the low CHT readings).

 

Unless I'm wrong, shouldn't the Aux Fuel Pump switches have 3 postions: High - Off - Low?

 

According to the "Normal Procedures" checklist, for Starting Engines they are set to "Low".

 

For Takeoff they are to set to "On" (is this supposed to "Hi" or "Low"?)

 

Then there isn't mention of them again until Descent when they are supposed to be in the "On" position. After landing they go to "Low" and for Engine Shutdown they are to go to "Off".

 

As near as I can tell there are only 2 positions for the switches: Fully Forward (is this "High"?) and Fully Aft (which is "Low").

 

Never flew a C404 when I was an active pilot. In the Navajo's I did fly,  the option for the aux pumps was on or off (apples and oranges, I know).

 

Just looking for a little clarification ;-)

 

Cheers,

Scott

The Carenado Seneca II and Baron 58 should have three position switches too, but they don't.  I expect the fuel pump switch issue in the C404 is a carryover of past inaccuracies in systems modeling.

Hi Stans,

 

Thanks for the reply. I kind of figured it was something like that. Just wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing something.

 

Cheers,

Scott
