    throttle idle settings

    Hi to all....

    hope you can help.
    Is there a way where i can adjust the Idle settings of the throttle?

    I use a hardware throttle and i want to have a little bit higher low idle settings on my 737-700.

    can i adjust that on the CDU type file or is it coded to the aircraft.cfg in the sim?


    Thank you in advance

    Hi, I think if you open up both engine cowlings you should be able to find the fuel control unit, then look for a idle fuel adjusting screw and give it a half or full turn clockwise, and double check all the cowl latches before you go flying.

    Just joking...I dont know...Andy

    That will work for the JT9D Engine but not for the PW125 or GE90, nor the GE110......

    Good to hear I didn't offend you. Yeah my dad flew DC-8's for Tigers long time ago, I suppose the new engines have a USB port...

    Re: throttle idle settings

    I have never seen a case where they needed to restart for no reason so I guess MAC.

    Re: throttle idle settings

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh...i did...many times....

    the last time outbound OMDB to LOWW...double Flight management computer failure.....The whole system went down on the 777-300...no displays at the CDU......no mp3īs...no porno...

    Delay: 1,5 hours after change of both computers and system test....weired....!

    I think they use Vista....
