NEW FSFlyingSchool 2020 for X-Plane!!

Features of the FSFlyingSchool Detail Pack for FSX Beaver and Aerosoft Beaver X


Built-in detail pack for FSFlyingSchool PRO 2016 for FSX and P3Dv3


You can master this exciting, classic aircraft!


- Works with FSX Beaver and Aerosoft Beaver X!


With the addition to FSFlyingSchool of the Detail Pack for FSX Beaver and Aerosoft Beaver X, your instructors will be looking at your aircraft and your performance in the Beaver in a lot more detail. In addition to FSFlyingSchool's detailed analysis of your flights, you'll hear extra advice and warnings all specific to the Beaver. Fuel management, pitot heat, carb heat, throttle, mixture, propeller lever, water rudder, primer, RPMs, manifold pressure, flap speeds, before takeoff procedures, starting the engines, landing techniques and much more.

Includes a number of Beaver 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 Beaver you are flying.
