IXEG 737 AutoStart

Recommended Posts

No. I don´t feel that this is needed, the Saab 340´s engine management is a lot more complex. The 737 is very easy to start up.

In general I really don´t see the need for an "auto start" sequence - if you don´t want to do it manually, select the "ready to fly option". What´s next, an "auto fly" option? ;)

Cheers, Jan

OK. I just wanted to get an idea of how long it would take to startup the 737 before I purchased it.

"Auto fly?"  I guess that's what autopilot is. :)

You need about 15 minutes for the IRS units to align - that is the limiting factor, timewise. The startup of the systems and engines can be done in less than 5 minutes.

If you want to do everything realistically (checks, tests, including programming the FMS) you would need about 15 mins altogether.

Cheers, Jan
