  • Open application
  • Fly (any server, any aircraft)
  • Attempt to manually start engines

Engines begin to start.

Engines do not start.

Unable to reproduce, started my engines just fine on the A350.

You have to turn the APU On.

APU was on. I started the screen recording after I was already spawned in and had that turned on.

Working fine for me.

iPad Pro 11in (2018)
iPadOS 13.7
20.02.00 464

I recorded a new one. You can hear that the APU is on.

Unable to repro. If you spam the buttons, it may cancel the start cycle. Try monitoring the ECAM display in the flight deck instead.

Version 20.02.00(464)


Can you please try and repo that again, but either show the centre screen in the cockpit or turn on all your lights. Also show the APU setting in the video.

I am also unable to repo.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I just tried to do so, and it worked. I updated to 20.02.00 (465) just now, so that may have fixed the issue. You’re free to close this, thanks!
