Engine Start and Poststart
After several flights, the cockpit interior checks and
engine start procedures may become mundane, but, it is
imperative that these checks be accomplished
expeditiously and correctly so that ground time is
minimized. In addition, you must closely monitor engine
start to insure that you do not allow the rare occurrence
of an abnormal start to progress to the point that the
engine is damaged.
In this lesson, you will gain practical knowledge of engine
starting procedures and abnormal starting indications that
will build on your basic understanding of engine operation
that you gained in Engineering.
You will identify the location and function of engine
starting controls and indicators, and go through the
prestart checks, normal engine start and poststart
procedures. You will then have an opportunity to identify
unacceptable engine starting indications.
