#1 Starting Engines von Graham 18.08.2007 15:22

First I would like to say a big thanks to Matthias for this wonderful panel.
I can't believe that it's so complex and yet still freeware - but of course I am very happy that it is
Well I am having a bit of a problem when starting the engines - I think I follow the start-up procedures correctly, but I must be doing something wrong - I just can't tell what it is though.... I can start engines 1 and 4 OK, but 2 and 3 will crank up but not start.
I am reading the manual but cannot see anything relevant to my problem - does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Hi Graham,

I could find this information on the BAe146 page, FAQ list :

"I could not start engine 2 and 3."

This could happen if you flew another aircraft before the BAe 146 and you stop the engines with the mixture control, or if you have saved a cold and dark cockpit situation when starting. In this case sometimes the mixture controls of engine 2 and 3 stay closed. There are now two ways to activate them. Either you open the mixture control in another aircraft or you press the keys cntr+shift+F4 when the BAe 146 is loaded to switch on the mixture of engine 2 and 3. Now it should be possible to start all engines. This will be corrected with the next update.

Good luck,

Thanks Peter, sorry I didn't read the FAQs properly
I always shut it down completely to cold & dark, so I'll remember to do that ctrl+shft+F4 each time.

Hi Graham,

Thank you very much for your posting, the compliment and the very kind words about my work. I'm very happy that you like it.

The new ARJ panel contents an entry in the fuel system gauge to open the mixture control of the Flightsimulator after the panel is loaded. I do not know why but it seems that sometimes this code does not proceed. In this case it only helps to press cntr+shift+F4 to open the mixture control as Peter already wrote.

Best Regards
