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


You can master this exciting, classic aircraft!


- FSX - Works with A2A Cherokee and Carenado Cherokee!
- P3Dv3 - Works with A2A Cherokee!


With the addition to FSFlyingSchool of the Detail Pack for Cherokee, your instructors will be looking at your aircraft and your performance in your Cherokee 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 Cherokee. Fuel management, pitot heat, carb heat, throttle, mixture, fuel pump, primer, flap speeds, before takeoff procedures, starting the engines, landing techniques and much more.

Includes a number of Cherokee 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 Cherokee you are flying.

Cold and Dark

On ground with no engine running and parking brake off

Advice to set parking brake.

Shortly after flight starts on ground with master battery on

Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.



Starting Engine

Engine start attempted with master battery switch off

Advice that the master battery switch must be on when starting the engine.

Engine start attempted with fuel pump off

Advice that the fuel pump must be on when starting the engine.

Engine start attempted and mixture control not correctly set

Advice that mixture control should be full rich when starting the engine.

Engine start attempted and throttle not set

Advice that throttle should open about 1/4 to 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 and fullest fuel tank not selected

Reminder that fuel selector needs to be on fullest tank (left or right) when starting the engine.

Shortly after moving in taxi mode

Advice on which instruments and systems should be checked during taxiing.



Take Off

Shortly after entering takeoff mode

Advice to set flaps normally up, or with 10 or 25 degrees for a short field.

Take off mode and pilot just selected too much flaps

Advice to set flaps normally up, or with 10 or 25 degrees for a short field.

Shortly after beginning takeoff

Advice to move throttle smoothly up to full.

Shortly after beginning takeoff

Advice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 60 MPH.

Shortly after takeoff

Reminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 76 MPH 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 85 MPH at sea level. Use this speed to climb after takeoff in normal operations.

Shortly after takeoff

Reminder that in this aircraft you should normally turn with a 20 degree bank and when doing so you will want to rollout about 20 degrees before your desired heading.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice that if you encounter heavy turbulence you need to be at or below maneuvering 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 any take-off flaps retracted.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice that in "cruise climb" in this aircraft you should normally fly at 100 MPH - and this gives good vision over the nose.



Cruise

Entering cruise mode

Advice to cruise with around 75% power, 2500 to 2600 RPM and consider leaning mixture above 3,000 feet MSL and certainly above 5,000 feet MSL.

Above maximum altitude

Advice to descend below 16,000 feet.



Descent and Landing

Descending and below maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 115 MPH the pilot may lower 10 degrees of flaps.

Descent to landing and mixture not set

Advice that mixture must be at full rich for descent to landing.

Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 115 MPH the pilot may lower 10 degrees of flaps.

Descending and decelerating to 112 MPH while landing

Advice that once below 112 MPH the pilot may lower 25 degrees of flaps.

Descending and decelerating to 109 MPH while landing

Advice that once below 109 MPH the pilot may lower 40 degrees of flaps.

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 typically want to approach around 76 MPH with 40 degrees flaps and touch down around 58 MPH.

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 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.



Taxi In

Flaps not fully retracted

Reminder to get flaps up.

Fuel pump on

Advice to turn off the fuel pump.

Carburetor heat on

Advice to turn off carburetor heat.

Pitot heat on

Reminder to turn pitot heat off.



Shut Down

Flaps not fully retracted

Reminder to get flaps up.

Avionics master switch on

Reminder to turn off avionics master switch.

Mixture control not cutoff

Reminder to cut off the mixture control.

Ignition key not off

Reminder to turn key counterclockwise to OFF.

Panel lights on

Advice to turn off panel lights.

Alternator on

Advice to turn off alternator.

Master battery on

Advice to turn off master battery.



General Warnings and Advice

Primer being used with engine off

Advice that up to three strokes of the engine primer can be used before starting.

Primer being used with engine on

Advice that primer is not used when engine is already running.

Engine running on ground and below 800 RPM

Advice to maintain at least 800 RPM to avoid fouling the sparkplugs.

Engine off and pitot heat on

Advice to turn off pitot heat.

Airborne and parking brake on

Warning that parking brake needs to be off.

Carburetor heat on and on ground and not performing run up

Advice that normal operation requires carburetor heat off unless landing or attempting to clear suspected carburetor icing.

Pitot heat off and not taxiing and OAT below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C)

Reminder to use pitot heat when OAT (outside air temperature) is below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).

Pitot heat on and taxiing or OAT not below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C)

Reminder to turn off pitot heat when taxiing or when OAT (outside air temperature) is at or above 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).

Warning that an engine is on fire and a drill for what to do about it.

Engine fire starts while airborne

Warning that an engine is on fire and a drill for what to do about it.

Engine has just 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 MPH for this aircraft.

Speed approaching vNE

Warning that you are close to exceeding 171 MPH which is 'vNE' (Never Exceed Speed) for this aircraft.

Fuel level low

Warning that total fuel is below 10 percent and you may wish to consider your refueling options.

Master battery just switched on

Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.

Master battery on and fuel level getting low

Engine running and alternator off

Reminder to turn alternator on.

Engine running and avionics master switch off

Reminder to turn avionics master switch on.
