Feature
FSFlyingSchool 2020
for X-Plane 11 and 10
NEW: GAME CHANGER! Automatic Aircraft Data Detection!

In answer to the most requested feature of FSFlyingSchool pilots all over the world, FSFlyingSchool 2020 now automatically reads X-Plane aircraft data, estimates any additional needed values and uses these values in your flights with FSFlyingSchool!
This means completely automatic support for most aircraft.
If you want to adjust the values the instructor is using, you can!
How does it work?
Get into your plane. Press Connect in FSFlyingSchool.
Go flying!

Some published aircraft may offer data to FSFlyingSchool which does not correctly match the aircraft, such as a flap position or a stall speed. These can be adjusted to the correct value by the pilot in a matter of seconds at the new section of the FSFlyingSchool Aircraft screen. No need to edit files.
Flying any powered airplane you want has never been easier!

Yes

Enhanced Instructor Awareness!

We have once again made several incremental improvements to FSFlyingSchool, including new areas requiring the pilot's attention.
Mr Smith, the chief instructor, is looking at each pilot's performance in even greater detail with the arrival of FSFlyingSchool 2019. Here are some of the enhancements:

- Mr Smith has always advised that your flight controls be checked before flights. In addition, he will now expect you to specifically check the free and correct function of your elevator, ailerons and rudder.
- Your instructor will advise you that if your aircraft has been stored for a long time you need to check for damage or obstructions caused by insects and birds.
- In cold weather, Mr Smith will remind you that frost on the wings can prevent the aircraft from becoming airborne.
- Shortly after entering cruise mode, you'll hear comments from Mr Smith on your success or failure in checking your elevator, ailerons and rudder before take off. Let's develop good habits.
- If you're in the kind of aircraft that has a 'run-up' procedure, Mr Smith will point that out and expect it to be done before take off. You'll be hearing from him later if you don't.
- Mr Smith will remind you to fully extend and retract your flaps before take off to check their correct function. You'll hear his feedback on this so let's get it done.
- You'll be reminded, when climbing on warm days, that steep climbs can lead to overheating - so be careful out there.
- Familiar with displaced thresholds? Mr Smith will remind you to land beyond any red lights preceeding the runway.
- Even without lights you'll be told to land beyond the displaced threshold. Mr Smith can see it - can you?
- You'll get timely advice about taxiway edge lighting (blue), runway edge and center line lights (white), red lights marking the far end of the runway and green lights across runway indicating its start.

Yes
Detailed Cessna 208 advice during 'Starting and Takeoff':
  • Shortly after flight starts on ground with master battery on
    - Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.
  • Engine start attempted and power lever not correctly set
    - Advice that power lever should be idle when starting.
  • Engine start attempted and parking brake not set
    - Warning that parking brake must be set when starting the engine.
  • Engine start attempted with master battery switch off
    - Advice that the master battery switch must be on when starting the engine.
  • Shortly after moving in taxi mode
    - Advice on which instruments and systems should be checked during taxiing.
  • In takeoff mode without flaps set
    - Warning that you must have take off flaps set at 20 degrees.
  • In takeoff mode with more than 20 degrees of flaps
    - Warning that you have too much flaps set and that you should use no more than 20 degrees.
  • In takeoff mode and on ground with autopilot on
    - Warning that autopilot must be off during takeoff.
  • Shortly after beginning takeoff
    - Advice to move throttle smoothly up to 1900 RPM.
  • Shortly after beginning takeoff
    - Advice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 73 KIAS.
  • Shortly after takeoff
    - Reminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 72 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to clear runway obstacles or to lift off from a soft field quickly.
  • Shortly after takeoff
    - Reminder that this aircraft's 'vY' (Best Rate of Climb Speed) is 104 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to climb after takeoff in normal operations.
  • Shortly after takeoff
    - Advice that if you encounter heavy turbulence you need to be at or below manoeuvring speed ('vA') and to remember that this will decrease as you burn fuel.
  • Shortly after takeoff
    - Advice to use right rudder to correct for any unwanted yawing to the left caused by P factor and torque.
  • Shortly after takeoff
    - Advice to get take-off flaps retracted.
  • Entering cruise climb
    - Advice to climb between 1600 and 1900 RPM.
Yes
Detailed Cessna 208 advice during 'Descent and Landing':
  • Descending and below maximum flap speed while landing
    - Advice that once below 175 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.
  • Descending to landing and fuel condition lever not set
    - Advice that fuel condition lever must be at low idle for descent to landing.
  • Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landing
    - Advice that once below 175 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.
  • Descending and decelerating to 150 KIAS while landing
    - Advice that once below 150 KIAS the pilot may start to lower 20 degrees of flaps.
  • Descending and decelerating to 125 KIAS while landing
    - Advice that once below 125 KIAS the pilot may start to lower full flaps.
  • Descent to around 1000 feet AGL while landing with autopilot on
    - Warning to disengage the autopilot below 1000 feet during an approach in this aircraft.
  • Descent to around 600 feet AGL while landing
    - Advice to use pitch to control airspeed and power to control rate of descent during approach and landing.
  • Descent to around 500 feet AGL while landing
    - Advice that you want to land with landing flaps (full flaps) at 80 knots IAS.
  • Descent to around 400 feet AGL while landing
    - Reminder to flare at about 10 to 15 feet above the runway and to lift the nose to land on your main gear first, lower the nose wheel gently and use minimum braking required.
  • Descent to around 300 feet AGL while landing
    - Reminder that at about 10 to 15 feet above the runway you should reduce power to idle and flare.
Yes
Detailed Cessna 208 General Warnings and Advice:
  • Loss of engine while airborne
    - Advice that the best glide speed in this aircraft is 95 KIAS.
  • Shortly after engine has started
    - Reminder to check the oil pressure.
  • Speed approaching vNO
    - Reminder that you need smooth air to fly above 'vNO' (Maximum Structural Cruising Speed) which is 140 knots for this aircraft.
  • Speed approaching vNE
    - Warning that you are close to exceeding 175 KIAS which is 'vNE' (Never Exceed Speed) for this aircraft.
  • Decreasing speed approaching vSO
    - Warning that stall speed with full flaps is 50 KIAS which is 'vSO' (Stalling Speed in Landing Configuration) for this aircraft.
  • Decreasing speed approaching vS
    - Warning that stall speed with flaps up is 63 KIAS which is 'vS' (Stalling Speed with Flaps Up) for this aircraft.
  • Left or right fuel level is low
    - Warning that one or both fuel tanks are getting low and you may wish to consider your refuelling options.
  • Flaps down and flying too fast for any flaps
    - Advice that once below 175 KIAS the pilot may use 10 degrees of flaps.
  • Master battery switched on
    - Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.
  • Master battery on and fuel level getting low
    - Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full as fuel falls below 50%, 25%, 10%, 5% and 3%.
  • Engine running and generator off
    - Reminder to turn generator on.
  • Engine running and avionics master switch off
    - Reminder to turn avionics master switch on.
  • Fuel condition lever too high when taxiing
    - Advice to set fuel condition lever to low idle.
  • Pitot heat off and not taxiing and OAT below 4 degrees C
    - Reminder to use pitot heat when OAT (outside air temperature) is below 4 degrees C.
  • Pitot heat on and taxiing or OAT not below 4 degrees C]
    - Reminder to turn off pitot heat when taxiing or when OAT (outside air temperature) is at or above 4 degrees C.
