hot start

i. A condition while starting a gas turbine engine in which the internal temperature rise is beyond permissible limits and can damage the engine. Special checks must be done on the engine after a hot start.
ii. An engine that has been running will tend to remain hot for a short time. During this period, it is possible to restart the engine by turning the crankshaft without the glow plug being plugged into a glow starter. This, however, could possibly create an unsafe condition.
