Starting Procedures

Just a quick question...
Everytime I have been in a light weight aircraft it has always taken two or three tries to get the engine started, even newer aircraft. Why does my dad's car start on the first try, but a single engine aircraft takes 2 or 3 times? Thanks!

Aircraft Signaling Devices

Hello, I have heard in other posts about signaling devices on aircraft to tell other planes which way they are turning. Where are these located on the aircraft? Where are the controls for these located in the flightdeck? And-Do all commercial planes have these?

Hello,

I know the 320 has a wider cabin and cruising speed, and the 737 has a higher cruising altitude. Any other "details" I should know...
