Deal with throttle when one engine affected

Recommended Posts

Hello guy's

I Wonder if thera are simmer whose have found to deal with engine failure and throttle when like me they are equipped of basic single throttle

Matter for me is that I can't respect the qrh as when I have to put the trust lever of the affected engine side to idle when moving my throttle to maintain sufficient power for the operative engine it

doesn't take in account the affected side and remove it to the same power as the side operating..

 

So have you got a tricks to know or later I must without doubt take some cash to improve my hardware?

 

Regards

Use "E" and then the engine you want to control "1 or 2".

Here's how I would do it.

You have an Engine Failure on Nr. 2.

Establish the aircraft, Disable autothrottle, Press "E 2" then "F1", and then you regain control of the remaining engine "E 1"

Yep, beyond that your only option is to rebind your throttle to specifically "Throttle 1" or "Throttle 2" in the control settings.

Otherwise, yes the only way to do it without changing your controls is probably to get a yoke/stick with a twin throttle

I don't know what you're flying, but if you're flying the 747, you might want one with four.

Or, just look down at the throttles in virtual cockpit and turn off the fuel to the affected engine with a mouse click.... of course the throttle for the disabled engine will probably still animate, but that may be a small price to pay if you don't want to use the keyboard commands as Samyr mentioned.

It will, and I think that's what he wanted to avoid having happen.

Worth noting that once the engine is shut down it doesn't matter what you do with its thrust lever, and many pilots will simply move all the levers together rather than leave one at idle (certainly a perfectly acceptable technique on the 744, can't speak for other types).

I've always wondered about that. I'm sure in a twin-engine jet, you could easily move just the one that worked and get away with it, but I can't imagine it being easy to NOT move the thrust lever of the affected engine on a Boeing 747-400 if it's either engine 2 or 3 that's shut down.
