Old fella, thanks. Makes more sense when you include "demonstrate VMCA" You are correct, we do not shut down engines, rather use a throttle setting close to flight idle which simulates a feathered engine. No, we do not get anywhere near VMCA2, and the simulation ends at MDA. I have seen 2 engine VMCA, but that was in the sim on a scenario with losing a second engine on a 3 engine ferry takeoff.
