Engine Startup/Shutdown Sounds


#1

Engine startup sounds would be great upon pushback or turning seatbelt sign on and shutdown sounds when turning the seatbelt sign off. An example of startup is shown below on a Boeing 777. Hear the startup sound from 2:25.


Another example of startup below is shown on an Airbus A321. Hear the startup sound from around 0:10.

An example of shutdown is below.

Maybe this could also be incorporated if an engine on/off button is added.

Very nice thought. You have a good point, making a proper startup button could make the whole game twice as realistic. Even on pushback.


#3

Yeah, I think this goes with this topic. Unless the startup sound is added without the button where putting the throttle up for the first time/on pushback makes the sound.


#4

It could be merged but I think he is directing it to the sound.


#5

Maybe this one?


#6

That’s for engines, your requesting aircraft startup.


#7

Aren’t they the same thing?


#8

You have a point, but I’m not sure…


#9

Maybe the APU makes a sound upon startup? But anyway, APU and engine startup sounds would be great.


#10

I´d definitely like to hear the engine start-up sound.


#11

I love to hear this in Real Life when I’m on a plane !

This will be so good in IF !


#12

One image per request.
@MishaCamp does that also go for videos?


#13

I don’t think the YouTube links take up any storage so it should be fine.


#14

Whats that sound when the a321 starts? Not the engine but those screeching sounds. I always hear those on planes and I never know what it is.


#15

I think that’s the hydraulics getting ready for the flight. Or maybe it’s something like the flaps moving, or the pushback tug moving the wheel.


#16

Why don’t we also make a fully fledged Mobile Flight Sim whIle we’re at it?


#17

This is just an idea. The ‘screechy sound’ was just a question, were not asking for that to be added.

For me this would be as great as global flight. But if I had to choose, I’d no doubt pick the engine Start and stop option!
I dont want dozens of liveries, but powering up my engine would be soooo great!

Ps : air brakes for Fighters would be great also :)

Realism is what makes IF attractive but it still has a long journey to go. This is one of the things it lacks and other features such as wing flex.
