De-ice system for engines & airframe.
Engine Anti-Ice works on the individual engines.

3 : Ignition Master
4 : Engine Selection
5 : Starter
To start the engines.
1) Make sure all relevant cocks & fuel valves are open on the fuel panel. (Fuel panel is ready to go by default)
2) Switch on the Ignition Master
3) Click the engine selection switch to the engine you want to start - 1, 2 or 3
4) Click the Starter switch & hold it at 'Start' until the engine has started fully
Repeat 3 & 4 for the other engines
When all engines are started, click the Ignition Master to 'OFF'


The booster engine panel (Trident 3 only) works on the same idea, but does not need the engine selection switch.
