Easyjet Procedures

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

as far as i know and observed on my recent flights, Easyjet is starting the #1 Engine first and then the # 2 Engine. Also they retract the landing light after Flaps Up due to passenger comfort (no vibration and less noise in the cabin).

Here are my questions regarding this.

- Does it matte which engine is started first during the Eng Start Challenge? Manual says # 2 and then # 1. Does it make any difference if i start # 1 first?

- Maybe you could do an option to retract LDG Lights with flaps up? I'am expecting that when i retract them by my self the f/o will then extend them at 10.000ft again?

Greetings Michael

Are you sure they start #1 first?

Normally you start #2 first to pressurize the Yellow system (alternate braking and parking brake).

Huh, that's weird... that's not Airbus standard.

Any Easy pilots here care to comment....

Could be for single engine taxi .... When you single engine taxi the Yellow Electric pump is manually switched on so the PTU doesn’t annoy the passengers.

I did two flights recently on EZY and both time # 1 was started first thereafter # 2 without single engine taxi.

EZY start Engine 1 first because we do a lot of single engine taxis most of the hydraulic systems used for single engine taxi are "connected" engine one hence why we use 1 first
