"Gentleman Start your Engines!"

No this has nothing to do with the need to upgrade your PC for the upcoming PF missions.

It was a new command made nescesary for the Navy when they started operating Aircraft from Carriers.

A loudspaeker on the Carriers Island (Super structure)would anounce this command to the Pilots on standby duty strapped into their cockpits.

Navy's use a lot of communication by sounding their horns and the Light signals (Strobe lights)The Horn used when entering a Port, Alarm Horns and the ships bell of course.
This and other commands would be a realistic and athmosperic addition to be featured in PF.

A 1MC on the ship would be nice to hear.

in the morning and at dusk before the next flight ops cycle began the skipper used to play music over the loudspeakers on deck to boost crew morale. Everything from Metallica to Sinatra depending on the Skippers mood. I remember one morning while the sun was comming up over the water he played some mozart.
