Apr 20, 2007 · Had a skyvan not come off the start locks after starting and the pilot tried to takeoff. Ran off the side of the runway and instead of aborting then he tried to keep going, tried to rotate and realised he wasn't going anywhere THEN he aborted. Over ran the runway at SDC (2000) and snapped the nose gear off.
The TPE331 isn't the only engine to suffer this problem, the IAE V2500 (Airbus320) also has a keep out range. With the Airbus the engine computers won't allow the engines to stabilise in the zone which is one of the reasons why the thrust levers are partially advanced to ensure the engines match before setting take off power. Dec 21, 2013 · TPE331 is the Garrett. So you are correct in saying the principles of the JS41 and this are the same. The start locks however are not simulated in this add-on, and the feathering isn't quite right. Visuals are very well indeed and the flight model is nice. I can't justify completing a flight with it as the start locks and feathering isn't correct.
