English: To restart
Often, mechanical issues occur when the airplane’s computer system gives fault indications. One way that maintenance may ask the pilots to address the issue is to do a system restart. Restarting the computer system or a certain component of the computer system may fix the fault indication. Your pilots may announce that they’re doing a system restart of some sort and you may need to translate that into French.
Démarrer=To start, to start up (in the sense of setting something in motion or switching something on)
If your airplane also has onboard WiFi or an inflight entertainment system and you run into technical problems with them in flight, you may need to perform a restart of these systems as well to try to fix them.

Flight Attendant Souvenirs. Souvenirs d’un agent de bord. Tofino, British Columbia. June 2014. Tofino, Colombie-Britannique. Juin 2014. This was on a trip I took to Tofino, which is a town on the Pacific coast of Vancouver Island, known worldwide for its surfing. I stayed across the water from Tofino, on a smaller island with a mountain. A group of us hiked up the mountain and enjoyed the view from atop. I did take a surfing lesson afterwards but it sure was hard. I was eventually able to stand on the surfboard…for a couple of seconds, before falling down again.
