Turning Engines On/Off Issue

I’ve been reading a lot of posts recently about issues about engine on/off switch and impacting ATC’s. What if the engine on/off switch could only be used on the ground, a bit like the pushback button.

There isn’t any feature to turn on/off the engine?

Typically engines are started on the ground, yes. Would be a little dangerous to start them mid-air.

There isn’t currently an option to turn the engines on/off, this is something that has been discussed and will hopefully be implemented in future updates.

Like @Harry said it will be added in the future but I doubt you will be able to start/stop them in mid air

I say, Matt should have the master switch, so while he is flying he can turn anybody’s engines off as an engine failure.

If you had an engine failure you need a mayday button tho. Its FAA required.

For everyone who asks when the update is.
