Thread: Default Lear 45 question

  1. Default Default Lear 45 question

    I fly this A/C all the time and being used to the PMDG 737 I engage the beacon prior to turning on to the runway. But this A/C doesn't have strobes. Just two beacons. So now I'm wondering if I should engage the beacon prior to engine start?

    The beacon does work, I'm just wondering if I should turn it on prior to entering the runway or before engine start?

    Aha! Well, in general it's considered good airmanship to be as clear about your intentions as possible.
    The red beacon is used to indicate that an engine is (about to be) running and to keep people out of harms way.

    I can't imagine the POH would not advise to turn it on before engine start to be honest.

    Don't have time to search the handbook at this moment, but maybe here's something you like:

    Looks like I found my answer.


    g. APU (if installed) — As desired:
    (1) BCN/STROBE Switch — BCN.
    (2) APU MASTER Switch — ON.

    So prior to starting the APU the beacon goes on. According to that manual, the APU has enough force to suck in people or objects.

    This default A/C doesn't have strobes. Only two beacons. So I guess I need to add them.

    The default Lear45 does have a strobe light!

    With just the battery switch on and the beacon/strobe light switch on

    Hi Folks,

    IRL - my beacon and strobes are separate switches - my beacon switch is never turned off - so as soon as the master is on the beacon lights - the strobes when entering or leaving a runway (part of the lights, camera, action ritual)...

    Regards,
    Scott

    If that was aimed at me.....I can't really tell if it was!.....They were both on and flashing, but at different intervals so I couldn't get a shot with both on at the same time.

    UPDATE: I just did a full test flight with the Lear45 and with all of the normal lights on the strobe is a steady light with just the small red beacon light flashing on the tail assy.
