Dear Falke Pilots,

here is a quick manual to start up the engine of the Falke:

1. If oil is cold

- parking brake set
- fuel valve on
- cowl flaps - closed
- main switch on 
- ignition on
- choke on 
- throttle - 25%-50%
- engine startup button (play with the throttle until it's starting) 
 

Warm the engine on 1200-1500 RPM. When the oil temperature is reaching 45-50C, you can close the choke. If you do it before, the engine may quit.
 

2. If oil is warm:

follow the same sequance above, but without the choke.

The use of the choke is the same in case of an air-start or windmill start. 

Don't try to take-off with oil temperature below 70C as stated in the POM, as the engine will not produce enough power to lift off!

regards,

Peter
