NEW FSFlyingSchool 2020 for X-Plane!!

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 on

Estimate 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 set

Advice that throttle should be open about 1/2 inch 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 with fuel boost pump on

Reminder to turn boost pumps off for take-off.

In takeoff mode with autopilot on

Reminder to turn off autopilot.

In takeoff mode without "take-off" flaps (flaps UP)

Warning that you must have flaps UP.

Shortly after beginning takeoff

Advice to move throttles smoothly up to full.

Shortly after beginning takeoff

Advice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 90 KIAS.

Shortly after takeoff

Reminder 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 takeoff

Reminder 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 takeoff

Advice that in "cruise climb" in this aircraft you should normally use 25 inches manifold pressure and 2500 RPM.

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.

Entering cruise mode

Advice on correct manifold pressure and RPM settings.




Descent and Landing

Descending and below maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 152 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.

Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 152 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.

Descending shortly before landing

Reminder to turn off autopilot.

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 landings flaps (full flaps) at 85 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.




General Warnings and Advice

Fuel boost pump on shortly after starting

Reminder to turn boost pumps off.

Loss of engine while airborne

Advice that the best glide speed in this aircraft is 115 KIAS.

Engine fire started

Warning that an engine is on fire.

Shortly after engine has started

Reminder to check the oil pressure.

Speed approaching vNO

Reminder that you need smooth air to fly into the yellow arc on your ASI, above 195 KIAS which is 'vNO' (Maximum Structural Cruising Speed) for this aircraft.

Speed approaching vNE

Warning that you are close to exceeding 223 KIAS which is 'vNE' (Never Exceed Speed) for this aircraft.

Decreasing speed approaching vSO

Warning that stall speed with full flaps is 75 KIAS which is 'vSO' (Stalling Speed in Landing Configuration) for this aircraft.

Decreasing speed approaching vS

Warning that stall speed with flaps up is 84 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 152 KIAS the pilot may use flaps.

Engine running and alternator(s) off

Reminder to turn alternator(s) on.

Engine running and avionics master switch off

Reminder to turn avionics master switch on.

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%.
