ISLN switches?

Postby soprano » Sat Jan 04, 2020 8:03 am

Hi!
I am completely new to Flightgear and have no former experience with flying... Just a n00b aviation geek, so to speak :mrgreen:
I am currently trying to start up Boeing 747-400 (from cold and dark) and am using the tutorial but is stuck trying to figure out what "ensure the ISLN switches are open" means. It feels like I have pushed every button/switch on the panel but nothing seems to work. Does anyone know what to do?

My guess is that this refers to isolation... but where can I find it?

Nice! Would you mind sharing where you found it so that others that have the same question can profit?

A tutorial here :

Opening the ISLN (isolation) switches allows the air to flow freely between the air packs.
