Hi! A few questions about how to handle an engine failure during takeoff (after V1). Yesterday I armed a engine failure after V1, manually climbed 1500ft and engaged autopilot but I noticed that I cannot engage autothrottle. Is that normal? Should the autothrottle not be used under any engine failure conditions? How about the landing weight? Would it be normal policy to land the aircraft in an engine failure (not engine fire) occured after takeoff if you are a bit abowe max weight? Say 5000-6000lbs. Or should you circle around to burn fuel with one engine since the 737 has no fuel dump capability? Thanks! Kaj Ekström
C2615 posted a topic in The FS2004 (FS9) ForumThere are some Utilities for FSX can do such practice (fstakeofftrainer10,FSiPanel,ect..),by simconnect and some of the addon aircraft for FS9 too(PMDG,LDS,ect..) I wander if there is any Utilities for FS9 to fail one for the engine when hit a per-set IAS, use FS9's own failure system or FSUIPC?
Recently, when I fly the 737 in FSX I have received a continuous engine failure indication abut 10 minutes into the flight. The engine indicators turn all red and the message "Engine Failure" appears below. The revolution indicators temporarily go to 0, but then the engines restart. But the cycle of failure and restart continues indefinitely, and I can find no way to fix the problem. I have adequate fuel, and there is no message on the FMC. i have previously had many successful flights. I have installed no new applications. The Failures Option is turned off in the FMC, and in FSX Can anyone help? Jack Laschenski
DragonAsh posted a topic in PMDG 737NGXHello. I recently purchsed the 737 NGX and love it. I've been using it with FS2Crew for BAV flights, and it's amazing! However - on about 50% of flights, I run into the following problem: as I try to apply power to begin taxi, or when applying power to begin the take off roll, one or both engines suddenly fail, with 'eng fail' and 'low oil pressure' lights/warnings. Sometimes the engines come back by themselves automatically, sometimes they just die, and I haven't figured out how to re-start them. I am starting every flight from cold and dark using FS2Crew to go through the entire start-up procedure and all the checklists. I've even run into this problem doing the various tutorials from PMDG - so in other words I don't think this is a fuel supply / configuration problem. Any ideas?
