Brief Description:  First Engine Start

Unfortunately, to much concentration for the engine start for photos, however, there is some video footage if you would like to download it. Warning, it is quite big though.

I covered off two engine starts and completed a number of ground checks in the process. Video is for thefirst of the engine starts.

Ground checks completed:

Primary Alternator, Secondary Alternator, no alternator
Left and Right Mag check
Primary battery, secondary battery
Navigation, strobes, landing lights
Pitot heat on and cycling
Radios Com1 and Com2 working
Radio flip/flop
Garmin GTN650 Frequency flip/flop
Propellor cycling
Idle stable
Throttle response all good

I ran the engine from Idle to 1750 RPM and cycled this over the course of 15 mins first engine run and 25 mins second engine run.

Need to get a better handle on how it starts, but, fired of well.
