• Tutorial Video: Learn To Fly Here #2

    Learn To Fly Here #2 | Engine Starting | Propeller Safety | ACS | MSFS

    By thecorporatepilotdad

    As a professional pilot and former Certified Flight Instructor the following is a presentation of engine starting and some situations to consider before and after starting an aircraft engine. This video follows the Airman Certification Standards (ACS) as a guide and covers situations when engine starting would not be done and what steps need to be taken to safely start an engine considering surroundings, nearby personnel and passengers, wheel chocks, and much more. Microsoft Flight Simulator is used, but for demonstration purposes, real-life situations, checklists, and procedures are used in the video.

    A general Before Starting and Engine Starting checklist are followed with step by step descriptions for each step along with some aircraft limitations for the aircraft used in the video. A general demonstration of a stuck starter following the Airplane Flying Handbook is also shown.

    There is also a small discussion and example of an NTSB case study of an incident that occurred as a result of an aircraft not being ready for starting.

    Future videos in the Learn To Fly Here series will follow the FAA Airman Certification Standards for the Private Pilot Airplane license.

    Why did virtual cockpits not gain widespread traction until after fs9?
