Features of the FSFlyingSchool Pro 2013 Detail Pack for Beechcraft Baron 58
With the addition to FSFlyingSchool PRO 2013 of the Detail Pack for Beechcraft Baron 58, your instructors will be looking at your aircraft and your performance in your Beechcraft Baron 58 in a lot more detail.
Includes a number of Beechcraft Baron 58 checklists you can request to be read by your instructor.
Here are just some of the different stages of flight in which events will cause your instructor to talk to you, with specific reference to the Beechcraft Baron 58 you are flying.
Starting and Takeoff
Shortly after flight starts on ground with master battery onEstimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.
[Engine start attempted with fuel off]Reminder to select fuel tanks "ON".
Engine start attempted and throttle not correctly setAdvice that throttle should be open about 1/2 inch when starting.
Engine start attempted and parking brake not setWarning that parking brake must be set when starting the engine.
Engine start attempted with master battery switch offAdvice that the master battery switch must be on when starting the engine.
Shortly after moving in taxi modeAdvice on which instruments and systems should be checked during taxiing.
In takeoff mode with fuel boost pump onReminder to turn boost pumps off for take-off.
In takeoff mode with autopilot onReminder to turn off autopilot.
In takeoff mode without "take-off" flaps (flaps UP)Warning that you must have flaps UP.
Shortly after beginning takeoffAdvice to move throttles smoothly up to full.
Shortly after beginning takeoffAdvice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 90 KIAS.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 92 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to clear runway obstacles or to lift off from a soft field quickly.
Shortly after takeoffReminder that this aircraft's 'vY' (Best Rate of Climb Speed) is 105 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to climb after takeoff in normal operations.
Shortly after takeoffAdvice that in "cruise climb" in this aircraft you should normally use 25 inches manifold pressure and 2500 RPM.
Shortly after takeoffAdvice 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 takeoffAdvice to use right rudder to correct for any unwanted yawing to the left caused by P factor and torque.
Entering cruise modeAdvice on correct manifold pressure and RPM settings.
Descent and Landing
Descending and below maximum flap speed while landingAdvice that once below 152 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.
Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landingAdvice that once below 152 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.
Descending shortly before landingReminder to turn off autopilot.
Descent to around 600 feet AGL while landingAdvice to use pitch to control airspeed and power to control rate of descent during approach and landing.
Descent to around 500 feet AGL while landingAdvice that you want to land with landings flaps (full flaps) at 85 knots IAS.
Descent to around 400 feet AGL while landingReminder 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.
