Type of improvement: Boost cutout mechanism

Explanation of proposals: The boost cutout switch/knob in the game simply allows the throttle to be moved further forward to higher boost levels. In the real aircraft this was not the case. The real switch immediately removed the restriction on boost for the current throttle setting - allowing boost to surge without having to adjust the throttle at all.

This means that even if the throttle isn't at it's fully forward position, a surge in boost is still likely when the switch is flicked - as any current restrictions on boost will be removed.

Benefits: More accurate boost behaviour. This is also better for the player since at the moment if the throttle is fully open when the switch is operated, the lever must be moved back and then forwards again to achieve the higher boost.
