Learjet 35A will not start (even with CTRL+E)

Recommended Posts

Just purchased the Flysimware Learjet 35A, Version 1.8, from FSPilotShop (exactly one day before their sale!!!), and am initially impressed with the quality of the graphics, cockpit sounds, clicks, bells and whistles.


However, I am unable to start the blasted thing! Following the checklist for a cold and dark start is a no-op - while everything clicks on, the start sequence is non-operational. Even doing a CTRL+E start fails - the turbine spools up to 18.1 on the left engine only, and then shuts off to slowly return to zero. It does not even try to start the right engine.


I am running P3D V3, which is a supported platform.


Any ideas? 


I checked the Flysimware site and there are no references to starting problems.

Hi John,


No the Learjet will not start using CTRL+E, but if you watch this video it will help you get this beast started. Great plane, also MU-2 is very nice also, bought it yesterday and it went to 50% off today, feel your pain, but it's worth it :wink:

Thanks, Martin - that was perfect.


I had everything correct except for pulling the throttles all the way back - I had them in the F2 position (feathered - can you tell I fly a lot of GA aircraft?).


I liked flying the Premiere Aircraft Design freeware MU-2 back when I first started in FSX (all of four years ago - this is a fast moving environment nowadays!), and since it is on sale I just might add her back into the hanger, updated!


Thanks again!
