Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The Hamburger Flugzeugbau HFB 320 Hansa Jet was a West German passenger and multi-purpose aircraft developed in the 1960s, powered by two turbojets.[1]

It did not have thrust reversers but a drag chute installed to land on short fields.

Aircraft help


A tutorial exists for starting up the engines. This tutorial describes and performes all necessary items to get the engines running.

  1. Pull the throttle levers to CUTOFF (fully back)
  2. LH and RH WING-PUMP MAIN both ON, located at the overhead panel
  3. check FUEL PRESSURE LOW lights OFF in the warning panel
  4. Click START LH and START RH, engines spool up
  5. Advance throttles to IDLE (a little more than 10%), check IGNITION lights in overhead panel ON
  6. engines fire and after a few seconds check IGNITION lights are OFF in overhead panel
  7. check engine rpm approx 50%
  8. switch on GEN1 and GEN2, warning lights in the warning panel go off

Development status/Issues/Todo

  • The autopilot is highly unreliable
  • The startup tutorial is broken, using the procedure for manual startup works. Hold the starter button until engine rpm is greater than 47%.
