The pilot's window sound is like the exit door when opening and sound like a window sound when closing

Not a big deal but for info

The sound is the same sound in the reverse order. And both the main exit and the pilot's window/emergency exit use the same sound since the default sound set can only use 1 sound for all exits. I found a happy medium to fit both window and door.

if someone wants to make me a window sound with a sliding track sound in between. Or 2 recordings that i can combine i can add this sound to our custom sound list.

I can record the sound of opening and closing the DV window on one of our Falcon 900s if you like. The window is very similar to the one on the 50.

Best I can do is to use the sound recorder on my iPhone. I’ll try it and see how it turns out. I’ll do it on an unpowered aircraft so there are no extraneous cockpit noises in the mix.

Beta 3.8 now has these sounds and it turned out fantastic. Thanks Jim...

Hi Folks,

Gotta love the team work around here - nice work...

Some other developers should note the benefit of interacting with their customer base - in a positive manner...

Regards,
Scott

Here’s a bit of Falcon trivia: Falcon pilots will usually open the sliding window before starting engines, (if the main entrance door is closed), only closing it after all three are running and stabilized. In fact, this is mandatory if starting engine 3 first.

The pressurization outflow valves are spring-loaded to the fully closed position. That is their normal position when the aircraft is unpowered. They are operated by vacuum created by an air jet pump tapped into the bleed air lines of both engine 1 and 2, (and the APU), but not engine 3.

On the ground, as soon as vacuum is available, the pressurization controller directs it to the two outflow valves, pulling them fully open.

However, if for some reason, the pilot starts engine 3 first, this won’t happen. Since a Falcon bleed air control panel is normally set to “auto mode”, the pack airflow to the cabin starts as soon as the engine is stabilized. If the door and sliding window are both closed on an engine-3-first start, the aircraft will start pressurizing uncontrollably as soon as the pack airflow starts.

This isn’t normally a problem when starting engine 2 first, (standard procedure) since that engine does supply vacuum for the outflow valves, but just to be on the safe side, pilots usually leave the sliding window at least partially open until all three engines are stable at idle. 

I don’t recall seeing this mentioned in any pilot checklists for the Falcon 50 or 900, but it is mentioned in the engine run section of the maintenance manual.

Opening the window before starting engines is something pilots learn about when they go through classroom training for their initial type rating in the aircraft.
