Anyway to stop auto chocks release?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, Is there anyway to stop the chocks being automatically released following before start procedure/checklist?

Problem I have very rarely is if I need to use a huffer to start her up because APU is inop it gets bit messy. Its all connected up but then auto removes chocks meaning I have to go through the whole disconnect/depart/put chock on/arrive/connect etc. 

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance 🙂

Chris

Hi Chris,

Based on the code, FS2Crew will remove the chocks (which automatically disconnects all ground equipment at the same time), at the end of the Before Start Procedure.

FS2Crew shouldn't remove the chocks if the Air Start or GPU is connected.

However, with the recent PMDG 777 update, I think we lost our ability to read if the GPU or Air Start cart are connected.  And that would explain your issue.

I'll check this out.

Thanks for the report.

Cheers,

Chris, I just fixed this, but I'd like you to confirm the fix.

Check your PMs.

Cheers,
