    Start any free flight with the Airbus A320neo at any airport. Make sure you start at a parking stall or gate in the dropdown under the airport you choose.

    The aircraft will be cold and dark. The checklist will walk you through starting the plane up and does not count as using Assistance.

    Once you start any engine, left or right, achievement will unlock.

    JappeThere's also the eye icon in the checklist on every item. If you click on the eye icon the game will highlight where the switch or button is you need to press. It's kind of odd this doesn't count as Assistance but why should we care, it's another achievement!

    Almighty ZingAfter someone pointed out on the Jack of All Planes achievement that liveries were causing problems I tried this one again and it worked first try, so if you're still struggling with this, uninstall any liveries you may have (I just renamed the folder so I can put them back on later)

    To unlock this achievement on Xbox, start a flight in the Airbus A320neo but make sure to use the default livery as changing this stopped the achievement popping for me.

    Now choose an airport and select a parking gate to depart from. Select an arrival airport if you wish and click to start to fly. Once loaded in, the plane will be parked with no engines running. Just hit RB + Right Dpad to start the engines and the achievement should pop immediately
