See pages 3-7 and 3-8 of the MU-2 Pilot Operating Manual here:

How will the basic procedure listed there will work with the simulated MU-2 I don't know.

Thanks for this - it appears that the airstart procedure is not simulated..   I was however finally able to get the normal ground start to work -

We created a new code for an airstart. Please give us feedback on how it works out.

Not only do you get an airstart but we fixed the gear horn when throttle lever is low if an engine is not running. So only a running engine can give a gear horn sound.

How to Airstart. Not exact real world but very close.

1. Throttle 2 to idle and cut engine 2 power by putting the right conditioner to "EMERG STOP".

2. Put the right conditioner to "takeoff and land".

3. Put "air start & safe" switch to the center position.

4. Put the right "run crank stop" on run.

5.The right "unfeather" on.

6. Hold the right "ENG Start" button for 10 seconds.

Done!

Responding to the forums with another amazing fix for a product released years ago---this is why I am a loyal customer of FSW. 

Can't wait for Mr. Bacon to make the Moo look as good as she flies. 🙂
