Pressure B707

Postby Uness » Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:37 pm

Hi, I have a problem with the B707: the engines shut down when my altitude is more than ~15000, and a message appear and tell me to switch on something about pressure, how can I solve it ?
And also the windshield become gray so i can't see through it.
Thank You.

Can you quote the exact message? This would help a lot, thanks!
I would use FSX but I use FlightGear because it's a project with goals.

The reason for the windows becoming gray is probably the fact that they're icing at high altitudes, you can turn on the windshield de-icing on the right side of the overhead panel.

And about the pressure warning; you need to turn on Air-conditioning, pressurization and these systems. You'll find them on the engeneering-panel on the right side.
The 707 is a very complex model! Awesome!

To my knowledge there's only 1 warning message about pressurization. Try what happens if you open the cockpit-window in flight above 15000 ft :mrgreen:

I hate to intrude, but where did you find this 707? It sounds like a great model :roll:

If you have pressurization alert, go to the engineer book read Emer Procedures and follow all steps.

Good luck.

I just don't get it, I continuously get this warning "ATTENTION! Increase cabin pressure expressly!"

What am I doing wrong?

How about posting a high-res screenshot of the engineer's panel after you have started it up? Big enough that people can see the switch positions.

I think it is a bug in the systems of the 707. I managed to get beyond the 16Kft mark without no cabin pressure warning this time and as a result there was no subsequent error. The error I posted above always came after I had the NO cabin pressure warning and I went to the emergency procedure and followed it to a T. It fixed the NO cabin pressure error but the other remained.

It should be said though that the tutorial doesn't exactly follow the checklist start-up procedure. I don't ever remember switching the safety value override to NORM (which automatically flips the pressurization type to manual) in the tutorial before flight. While I was trying to fix the NO cabin pressure system I must have got something crossed up in the system and it would just not go away.

It also handles the switching of the Eng/Gen bus changeovers differently. Maybe someone with some know should double check the tutorial or maybe not...

About the windshield: you need to switch on Anti-ice.

hello everyone. i have been trying to get this beauty, B707 to Sydney from san francisco and i have been failing everytime just because it says that i have to switch on the wing aniti ice system.i know that it is there on the overhead panel and in fact i do trigger it but i do not know much about it. but the base to what i am asking is, can anyone tell me why the system tells me engage it even though i have already done it? is it something related to that nob showing "otbd/inbd" or something?

Follow the complete Aircraft Checklists or Startup Tutorials

You will learn about all the pressurisation / anti-ice stuff that this plane needs to fly properly
