B777 practicing emergency procedures

Recommended Posts

I ran into an interesting situation the other day when I needed to resume a VAFS flight flying a CaptainSim B777. The resumed flight was over Colorado at 36,000 feet when it was resumed but when the sim loaded both engines were dead and were not windmilling. The only way I could get the engines running was to fire up the APU which is not supposed to even run at that altitude. So I ran a test and discovered there was no electrical or hydraulic power whatsoever if the engines are not operational, the RAT only powers the flight controls, and if the engines don't windmill you can't do an air start.
