It's CTRL-SHFT-F1 to shut down, CTRL-SHFT-F4 to to allow them to start. You must hit CTRL-SHFT-F4 before performing any of the following.

You can either just hit CTRL+E to start them both, one at a time automatically, OR you can set the main battery switch, right hand side panel, to ON, start the APU, and once it's green light is lit, flip the Engine Start switch, left hand side panel behind the throttle quadrant, to right, and watch the ENGINE page on a MFD. Once it spools to 20%, move the throttle lever to IDLE, or hit F4 a few times. Once it's spooled all the way to about 68% (idle), the Start switch will center it's self. Switch the Generator for the right engine ON on the right hand side panel.

Do the same then for the Left Engine.

After both engines are running at idle, with the generators, and main battery switches all ON, the APU will shut it's self down automatically.

You start the right hand engine first because it powers the hydraulic system that feeds the brakes, so it gives you full braking, including Emergency Brake (Parking Brake), if you need them for whatever reason.


Does this help at all?



Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!
