Guest Cralis Posted September 24, 2008 Share Posted September 24, 2008 On my intro flight on the weekend, the instructor asked me to flick 2 switches down... they were labelled "Mag...'. It was on the downwind leg of our approach. Any idea what this was for? I've heard it mentioned before. Something like 'Magnetos' or something. Is it like a diesel engines startup? When you start a diesel car, you gotta wait for that little coil thing to heat before you start. I don't think it's the same, as the Jab I went on runs on unleaded, I believe. Another question: Why don't they make diesel engines for planes like the Jab? More fuel efficient, and they can delivery plenty power. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
