For [[Dassault Mirage F.1]]

(Extract from Flight mirage F1 Manual)

=== Starting procedure===
* Open the '''LP''' main cock
* Switch on the '''RH''' and '''LH LP''' pumps
* Ignition/Ventilation selector : '''SWITCH TO OTHER PLUG''' (to permit alternate use of the plugs upon starting)
* Lift the starter button guard (check that the starting '''LP''' pump switch is effectively switched on
* Wait for the '''LP''' light to go out and immediately depress the starter button (for second approx : never exceed 2 seconds) and simultaneously start the stopwatch.
* Between '''300''' and '''600''' rpm - '''THROTTLE TO IDLE''' (engine cold, bring the throttle slightly beyound idle).
* The '''BOV''' light is on (at night, if the illumination of the light is not visible, momentarily increase the intensity of the failure warning panel.
In all cases, if the light does not come on, interrupt starting.
* Watch the RPM inicator and JPT indicator and check that the engine accelerates normally
* The '''OIL''' light should remain on when N < 2 000 rpm ; otherwise, interrupt starting
* During acceleration, the '''LP''' light may come on until the alternators cut in
*If starting is normal, the engine should accelerate positively and attein a speed >= 2000 rpm after approximately 15 seconds. During the same period, if the JPT increases rapidly through 700°C : close the throttle.
Exceptionally, JPT ~ 850°C is permissible for a period < 3 seconds
* The '''HYD.1''', '''HYD.2''' and '''OIL''' lights go out
*The '''BOV''' light goes out between 750 and 2200rpm
*The '''ALT.1''' and '''ALT.2''' lights go out between 2600 and 2800 rpm depending the load
* Idle rpm stabilizes close to 2900.(If the engine is cold, the speed is about 2600 to 3200 rpm : this phenomenon should disappear as soon as the engine is warmed up)
* Set the inverter control to '''RESET''' the '''EMG''' light goes out.

'''NOTE''' : Do not leave the '''LP''' main cock open for more than 15 seconds before the '''LP''' for starting pumps.

'''REMARK :'''
In case of operation of the slotted slat comparator (configuration indicator red light and '''S/F''' light on)
*Set the high-lift device selector switch to '''EMG RETR'''

From right to left

* Cockpit an equipment air conditioning control box
Master valve control switch ''ON''
temperature control rheostat ''AUTO'' 12o'clock
* Heading control box
heading and vertical reference system control switch ''ON''
heading selector '''NAV 1''' or '''HDG 1'''
emergency gyromagnetic compass selector ''ON''
* VOR/ILS ''ON''
* Standby horizon switch ''ON''
* Electric pump switch ''ON''
* Warning horn switch ''ON''
* Probe heat switch ''ON''
* Radar detector switch ''ON''
* Radar control box ''S''
* Doppler control panel
vertical resetting ''made''
display selector ''LAT'' or ''B/GS''
Land/sea calibration selector switch ''as required''
* Radar detector ''tested ... tone adjusted''
* Navigation indicator ''NA''
* Omnibearing selector box ''VOR/ILS or TAC''
* Sight ''ON''
* Shock cone pushbutton ''depressed''
* Standby horizon ''uncaged''
* Moving map dispay indicator ''NAV initial alignment made''
* Servos ''reset if necessary by action button''
* V/UHF (green) ''ON ... frequency selected''
* VHF (red) ''ON ... frequency selected''
*Heading transfer with transfer gyro ''made (if applicable)''
*Initial alignment of navigation start coordinates ''made''

=== Pre-taxiing checks ===
* Trims ''tested then set to neutral''
* Airbrakes : pilot's signal, jaw type hand movements ''airbrakes extended and locked''
* Flaps : after ground crew signal
** Slat/Flap lever ''full aft'
** Hight-lift device selector switch '' NORMAL check
*** slats full down
*** flaps full down
*** CBT.F light out
** Combat flap lever '''retracted

Ground crew moves aft and checks :
* Flaps
* Airbrakes
* Yaw damper '' ground crew exerts a few lateral thrusts on aft fuselage section and checks that control surface reacts by short oscillations''
* Fuel
** Emergency fuel transfer switch ''guarded''
** Refueling probe operating check :
*** Probe control switch ''up''
*** Prob in motion light ''on, then out''
*** Probe control switch ''dow, guarded''
*** Probe in motion light ''on, then out''
** Transfer/Refueling selector switch ''TRANS''
** Crossfeed switch ''OFF''
** Fuel transfer sequence selector switch ''as required
** Fuel gages '' fuselage and feeder tank quantities checked''
** Fuel remaining indicator ''operates normally''
** '''LP''', '''L/H LP''' '''R/H LP''' '''500 L''' lights ''out''
* Sight ''set''
* Hydraulic pressures ''normal''
* Failure warning panel ''lights out''
* Oxygen ''quantity pointer in green range''
* Seat/Aircraft coupling ''checked''
* Blinker ''operation checked''
* Harness '' correctly adjusted and locked''

Grand crew returns to the front; the pilot
* retracts the airbrakes
* test the nose wheel steering system through the rudder pedals and checks the control stick for full travel

=== Taxiing ===
* Slaved altimeter ''set''
* dps control ''on, flag out of view''
* Standby altimeter ''set''

==== Starting aircraft rolling ====
The canopy can be partially opened for taxiing, but it must be placed in this position with the aircraft stationary.
* Release the parking brake ''check handle in full forward position'' ('''BRAKES''')'' light out''
* Advance the throttle (600rpm)
* Start rolling, then apply the brakes :the ground crew checks the pitch damper
The aircraft is stecred with the rudder pedals WITHOUT THE ASSISTANCE OF THE BRAKES.

'''NOTE 1''' : It is recommended to avoid engine power settings between 5500 and 6000 rpm during taxiing (alternator gear change)

'''NOTE 2''' : Do not exceed a speed of 20 kt when taxiing in a staight line (heavy in particular). Turn slowly and obey these instructions even when the weather is hot and taxiing distances are long.

==== During taxiing ====
* IFF ''self-test with or without ground receiver (TOWER/RADAR)
* Sight ''adjusted and tested''
* Standby horizon ''miniature airplane adjusted
* Navigation indicator ''tested''

==== Before line-up ====
* Lower the helmet visor
* IFF ''normal''
* TACAN '''T/R''' ''tested''
* Radar'''TR''' ''tested''
* Radio-altimeter '''ON''' ''tested, altitude selected''
