Starting Jets

Recommended Posts

I have difficulty starting the engines on jets. Specifically can't find the start buttons on the Blue Angels planes. Also, what is the assignment for auto start of jet engines? Thanks.

Ctrl + E = Autostart on any aircraft.

For some reason this doesn't work on my setup and I had no keys assigned to the jet engine start. I tried to set Cntrl+E but the simulator says it's already assigned (as it is to engine start). It did accept Cntrl+Shift+E, however it still won't start the engines. Your help is appreciated. Thanks for your reply.

When doing the engine start sequence make sure to hit Ctrl+Shift+F4 to turn on the fuel valves.  Do it for each

engine.

Ctrl+Shift+F4 is by default "max fuel flow to all engines" - no need to do it for each engine.

Thanks for your help. I finally got the engines running. These planes seem to have a start sequence that takes longer than one would expect. I think part of my problem was I just wasn't waiting long enough for the sequence to complete.
