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 2017. 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.
- And more...!
Get ready to learn about temperature, wet runways, dew point and much more - including interactive crosswind instruction!
Look at the features the NEW INCLUDED 'Weather Tutor Pack' adds to FSFlyingSchool 2017 for X-Plane 11 AND 10:
Weather plays a key part in aviation and a thorough knowledge of weather and its effects is an essential part of every pilot's studies. Now your chief instructor Mr Smith can help in X-Plane.
Mr Smith is the man for Weather Tutor
As your chief instructor, he's the one who explains temperature, elevation, dew point, precipitation, crosswind techniques and more!
Interactive weather advice is optional
If you want to hear it, turn on the 'Monitor Weather' option at the Pilots Screen of FSFlyingSchool. You'll hear your instructor describing the current weather and giving instruction and advice on it.
Interactive crosswind advice is optional
If you want to hear it, turn on the 'Monitor Crosswinds' option at the Pilots Screen of FSFlyingSchool. You'll hear crosswind take off and landing instruction right when you need it!
Weather and crosswind tutorial advice is optional
If you want to hear this advice, turn on the 'Weather Tips' option at the Settings Screen of FSFlyingSchool. Chief instructor Mr Smith will give you general instruction on weather and more when you are flying during quieter periods. In order to avoid these tips sounding repetitive, they are chosen randomly so you won't keep hearing the same advice each flight. A great way to learn - and all while cruising along!
Get ready to learn - here are some of the areas Mr Smith will explain to you:
(Note that in addition to weather, the Weather Tutor covers several bonus subjects that are not strictly weather but still essential to safe flight.)
- Effects of temperature-dew point spread
- Considerations when flying in low light
- Considerations when flying in low visibility
- Considerations when flying in the presence of clouds
- Considerations when flying in low temperatures
- Crosswind landing technique
- Crosswind take-off technique
- Crosswind take-off roll aileron use

|Fly anywhere in the world with an instructor|
|Easy to use! Land anywhere you like and your instructors will know which runway you have chosen. Just get lined up with a runway ahead of you when you descend in landing mode. The instructor will look ahead, figure which runway you are heading for and announce where you are going to land.|
|Instructor knows which runway you are taking off from. Instructor will comment and give advice on the runway you have selected.|
|Instructor knows which runway you are landing at. Even without ILS, and will give advice on how to land.|
|No need to land on a fixed point on the runway. Any reasonable landing on a runway will get a reasonable score.|
|Spoken Teaching Tips. Option so that FSFlyingSchool will speak a series of helpful tips when you fly. Tips are always in the same voice and are clearly different from a normal 'instructor' voice. These tips are like training wheels on a bicycle and are telling you how to use FSFlyingSchool and X-Plane itself. Once you have got the basics of these operations down, you may wish to turn these basic tips off.|
|Friendly scoring system. Rewards all flights which were basically safe - higher scores require plenty of skill. If you can walk away from your landing - you will get a score. If you crash - you will not!|
|Numerical data added to log book. Shows details of flight performance, such as landing speed, distance from threshold, approach accuracy and more.|
