The Ground Power Unit is plugged into the right nahnd side of the nose of the aircraft...on the Fokekr F.27 and the Fairchild F-27...the GPU tho is plugged in under the tail section of the Fairchild FH-227..........when the engines on the fairchild Hiller the manual says that tyhey engines are props are in ground fine pitch or almost aflat pitch so that the chance that soem one would be pulled into the blade is minimal........how ever as with any propeller plane, one must always use special care when working around any spinning prop...so dont push your luck.....those Foker Prps at idle spin at a hig RPM and are metal blades....i dont think you want to be come confetti......

could it be possible that some people wouldn't like to unplugged the GPU because they are afraid of being so close to the spinning propeller? is there any chance to start the engines without GPU? Is there any chance to start engine nº 1 unplugged the GPU and later on start engine nº 2 ?

To the last question:
When a B737 starts with the use of a jet starter, first engine #1 is started, the jet starter will be detached (which is close to #2 engine) and after that #2 will be started. I suppose the same procedure is for the F27.
Normally a 737 starts #2 and after that #1, due to reasons of a fault light in the cockpit when starting in reverse order.
