what are some tips for starting a cessna 152?

December 1, 2008

When the engine is cold, why does it start better with the carb heat on?
Why does it start better when I pump the throttle a couple of times? – I know too much of this will start an engine fire in warm weather.
Why does it need more prime when it is cold?
While starting, how can you tell if it is flooded? – Can you hear the difference?

I'm not trying to be rude or anything ,but Isn't this something your flight instructor should have covered with you? Or will be if you are a flight student?

From your previously asked questions I assume you're not a flight student. Probably pretty bad idea for anyone here to give advice on starting an aircraft! THINK PEOPLE

You need to be a bit more specific, most people think of Cessnas as small piston single engine prop planes, for those:

CE-182T Skylane 1 pilot + 3 passengers. Tanks full range of 980 nm.
CE-206H Stationair 1 pilot + 5 passengers. Tanks full range of 595 nm.

Cessna also makes a single engine turboprop:

CE-208B Grand Caravan 1 pilot + 9 passengers. Tank full range of 834 nm

Cessna jets range fron the upcoming Mustang (CE-510) for 1 pilot + 5 passengers, max range 1280nm; to the Sovereign (CE-680) for 2 pilots + from 9 to 12 passengers, max range 2798nm and the Citation X (CE-750)(fastest civilian aircraft in service) for 2 pilots + 8 to 12 passengers, max range 3070nm.
