Mais en général, pour démarrer le moteur sur avion de type moteur à piston, il faut :
# Fuel - You can run out of fuel, of course, but for certain aircraft, FlightGear may load it with no fuel, making it impossible to start the engines. Check this in the menu Equipment/Fuel and Payload. # Correct mixture (generally "rich", ie red knob all the way in) # Magnetos on (R, L, or both--generally select "both") # Throttle (some engines start better with a little gas) # Hold starter for sufficient time. You may be able to do all these functions with the standard 2-D panel or your aircraft's built-in panel. However using the standard key bindings is more reliable: # Press/ hold "m" to set mixture to rich (m= rich, M= lean--if you are at a very high elevation you may need to set it somewhere besides full rich) # Press " }}}" ( three times) to set magneto to R, L, and finally "Both". # Open throttle a little. # Press "s" to run the starter. For some aircraft you may have to hold "s" as long as 10 seconds before the engine starts.
