Engine Problem

Recommended Posts


I ran into a strange problem:

I loaded a default aircraft to EDDT, Gate 6, changed to the CRJ700,aircraft state-Ready To Taxi and than aircraft state-Ready for Engine Start; preflight, pushback and engine start - I had the following reading with throttles at idle: N1=35.2%; N2=72.0%; EGT=467degr. This makes it extremely difficult to taxi. I continued the flight to LKPR, landed and vacated the runway. NOW I had the following engine readings with throttles at idle:N1=21.2%; N2=60.0%; EGT=351degr. Now this more a idle speed and easy to taxi.

Any idea why the idle was different at the start of the flight????

Thanks for answers

If both Anti Ice activated, Wings and Engines, you get exact 35% N1.

If you activate Wing Anti Ice only you get 30% N1.

Check it.

Hi Hoffie300,

Checked it this morning - exactly as you stated N135% with both anti ice ON and 21% with both OFF.

I had anti ice ON due to snow and icing conditions.

Thanks for help
