View Full Version : PS Panels 737NG
12-14-2007, 06:55 PM
Has anyone encountered problems with Paul Scarratt's panel for the 737? It was released as freeware some months ago. I have it installed and aliased to a new 737-832 I got recently, however, I cannot get the engines to "light off". I've followed the checklist for engine start religiously, I get the proper N2 values, but, when I engage the fuel selector at 20-22, the engines do not start, the N2 stays at 23-24. Thanks !

Well, given that the original query was posted 4 years ago, hopefully Charlie has found his answer long ago (or else he's given up). However, I was flying with the PS Panel just the other day, so I might as well post the details, in case someone else finds this thread and wants to know. The PS panel is fairly realistic to real 737 procedures regarding engine starting. To start the engines you must:
1) Have a source of electric power (Ground power if available).
2) Start the APU
3) Turn on the APU generator switch (near centre of overhead - blue light will come on once APU is running)
4) Turn on the APU bleed (right of overhead)
5) Turn on the fuel to the number 1 engine
6) Set the number 1 engine starter to GRND
7) The number 1 engine should spin up and start. Once the starter auto resets:
8) Turn on the engine 1 generator switch (near centre of overhead - blue light will come on once engine is running)
9) Turn off the APU bleed (otherwise panel will complain about dual bleed)
10) Turn on the engine 1 bleed (right of overhead)
11) Open the bleed cross-feed switch (top of bleed area at right of overhead)
11) Turn off the APU
12) Turn on the engine 2 fuel
13) Set the number 2 engine starter to GRND
14) Wait for the number 2 engine to spin up and start and the starter to auto reset
15) Turn on the engine 2 generator
16) Close the bleed cross-feed
17) Turn on the engine 2 bleed
I think that's everything. Then you should be good to go. Oh... sorry, you must turn on pumps also - basically if a switch has a light beside it, you generally need to flip the switch so the light goes off.
