Resetting tripped breakers is know as "Boom Checking." Resetting a tripped fuel pump breaker has been known to blow thing wing's off airplanes.
When a breaker is TRIPPED it probably tripped for a reason!
We're talking about shutting off a breaker which is NOT the same thing
as a tripped breaker.
Is the main buss power switch on a helicopter a switch or a circuit breaker????
