Thanks for the update.

Unfortunately, my Button version still has the Split IRS and No land 3 warnings.

Make sure all the EIU knobs are in the "auto" position on the Capt and FO's side.

You might want to ask PMDG and ask them what conditions can lead to the Split IRS No Land 3 scenario.

Does this happen even if you don't run the pre-flights?

I haven't tried without the pre-flights yet.

The funny thing is that it seems to make no actual difference: I carried out an auto land after a 12 hour flight quite successfully despite having those warnings.

I will raise a query on PMDG and see what happens.

After extensive checking, the problem seems to be that the FO turns the APU off while the engines 1&2 are still starting.(I don't use ground power). While the APU runs all 3 IRS's are working. Once the engines start (4&3) one IRS has power but the other two are cut off with the shut down of the APU and this causes this error. If I manually turn the APU on again and wait 7 minutes for the IRS's to reset, all is fine.

Am I right to think that the APU should be on until all engines have settled?

Hi Ian,

The APU would normally come off during the "Before Taxi" procedure as part of the FO's flow.

Are you triggering this flow prior to all engines being stabilized?

Hi Bryan,

You have hit the nail on the head.

I watched the lower overhead while the engines were starting and I had been starting the Taxi procedure when GSX gave the "all clear". This is about

2 minutes too early. If I wait for the ignition lights to extinguish first, then everything happens as it should.

Thanks for being so patient with such a small matter. Much appreciated.

Glad you got it sorted :-)
