F-16 Start Up Sequence




Start up of the F-16C is simple….no external APUs or other equipment is necessary. One switch turns on the battery and then another switch hits the Jet Fuel …

  1. I stole his LAT/LNG off the DED this was in 'Kriti' or Crete' a island south of Greece …comparing his view outside the hangar I was able to pin point that hangar from Google maps. his LNG/LAT brought me to the airport not his specific location.

  2. Thanks for the memories. I had maintained F-16's (blocks 15 through 40) and was engine run certified for close to 16 years. Probably have a few hundred hours running both the Pratt's and the GE's. That was alot of years ago now, but the sights and the sounds of the canopy, the JFS and the engine does bring back some happy memories…. except; those 40 minute oil consumption runs and those long lonely mosquito infested nights on the trim pad!

  3. "Start up of the F-16C is simple." Yeah, wow, it's just a setting the clock on a VCR! After watching this video, we feel ready to take up an F-16C ourselves. (Seriously: F-16C might be "simple" to start by fighter plane standards. Back in the 8-bit days, jet fighter video games might have been more complicated to start than this! To technies like ourselves that love complexity, this looks pretty simple given how awesome this machine is! But for 90% of the population, this is far too complicated of a UI/UX requiring a great deal of training to operate … and that's just starting the plane, never mind flying it. Nowadays, were this a consumer or typical industrial device, most of these startup steps should be carried automatically by a central computer (which not be possible on avonics systems since there may be good reasons to separate systems).

  4. It's awesome after been playing Falcon BMS for a week straight and have a solid understanding of what's going on. They made that sim in so much beautiful detail.

  5. Now imagine that you're a Viper pilot in ROCAF starting up to get off the runway before Chinese ballistic missiles detected by PAVE PAWS radar impact in 5-8 minutes.
