Where is the apu switch on this aircraft?

Recommended Posts

I am new to the Falcon 50 and I am wondering how I turn on the apu? Is this aircraft fitted with one? Silly question I know, but I am used to flying the simplified Carenado version.

The APU panel is on the co-pilot's right side pedestal.

To start the APU (from the Falcon50 manual):

a) Electrical Buses A + B must be tied.  (Flight normal off; rotary Main bus tie knob horizontal)

b) #2 booster switch on

c) APU master on.

d) APU GEN on.

e) Press START.

f) Bleed air is optional.

G) Press STOP to turn off the APU system.

NOTE: Make sure the external power switch is on normal and not external power. EXT POWER is for the GPU (Ground Power Unit only).

The FSW Falcon 50 is a complex aircraft. Suggest you download the Falcon50 manual from the FSW website -- has lots of useful info.
