FF A320 Engine Start not working

Recommended Posts

Hello,

for some reason the engine start on the Flightfactor Airbus is not working without the ground power connected before.
If I switch on both batteries, then the APU and the APU Bleed the engines are not starting.
They are only starting when I have switched on and used the ground power unit before.

I do not observe this strange behaviour with the FSLABS A320.

Does someone have an explanation for this?

Thank you!

Best regards Andreas

Don't forget the APU Generator Switch; no White Bar = no start.  Caught me out a few times.

Luckily I found it out myself. You have to switch the engine start levers back and forth several times to make it work. Is that a bug ?

Something I have found is that once you flip the Ignition switch from NORM to IGN START, look at the lower ECAM monitor (the screen under the engines). You have to wait until it changes to show engine data. It usually takes about 2 seconds after you flip the switch. Then proceed with moving the ENG1 and ENG2 levers up 

Just something small I've run into, maybe that's how the real plane is. Otherwise you will end up moving the engine start levers back and forth
