Tip 3: Engine Power Control
For the most efficient operation of the engines you should use the Engine Rating Panel (ERP) to set the appropriate rating mode for the current flight situation.
- Set the throttles in the full forward position
- Select the appropriate engine rating mode
- The Electronic Engine Control (EEC) system will automatically set engine power output for you
The EEC system will calculate the optimum power output based on rating mode, altitude, temperature and airspeed. The EEC system will also automatically set the propeller pitch and RPM for you.
See the FAQ section if you are having problems with the ERP (Q&A34).
