In the Twin Engine Wessex of yesterday year....was that not a common practice when on a long distance ferry flight?
It was in the offshore business in Oz SAS, all approved by the regulator. Had to be above a certain altitude in order to get the shut down one restarted in the event of a failure in the one you were using, resulted in something like a 25% reduction in fuel burn if I recall correctly what I was told. I think it was used on pax flights as well, because of the range they were operating.
