  1. I have a PFC throttle quadrant with two reverser levers. I'm unable get the reversers working. the power levers are at iddle but no any kind of moving the reverser levers. So with or without a registered FSUIPC. Only the F2 key is working. Is it possible to assing a reverser lever axis to the F2 key? Regards
  2. External light switching is not correct. The Hi-Int light is "on" together with the Nav lights and is not to switch separately. 1. Hi-Int light - Hi -Int light on = the white light on the aft side of the wings 2. Nav Light on = Red and Green light on on the tip of the wing. Regards
  3. APU start and Parking Brake

    Remove the need to start the APU with the parking brakes on. This is in the normal operation or turn-around not desired. As soon the aircraft is in position groundstaff place the wheel shock's and the cockpit crew releases the brakes. The marshaller gives a sign to the cockpit "chock's in place" or the auto docking system gives the cockpit the information. This is done to avoid heat transfer to the tires and when you have a little internal hydraulic leak (pressure return line) in the parking brake valve you have no brakes at all so you see moving the aircraft by itself :-( Regards JovaBra
  4. APU start and Parking Brake

    Hi all, Parking brake on as an inhibit to start the APU is not normal. Normal and standard groundhandling procedure: 1. Arriving on the gate position and placing the wheel chocks. Special sign from the marshaller or auto docking system 2. After placing the chocks immediatly releasing the brakes. Reason: to avoid heat transfer from the brakes to the wheels and for safety reason. It is not known how long you keep pressure on the brake. You close the hydraulic pressure return line. Some internal leakage is possible. 3. Just before pushback removing the wheel chocks by the groundhandling staff. 4. In short: Parking brake set to start the APU is not a standard procedure Regards
