This Detail Pack is built into FSFlyingSchool PRO 2013 - it does not need to be added!

If purchased as an add-on for FSFlyingSchool PRO, it works with FSX and FS2004 AND Prepar3D!

With the Detail Pack for Mooney Bravo, your instructors will be looking at your aircraft and your performance in your Mooney Bravo in a lot more detail.

Includes a number of Mooney Bravo checklists you can request to be read by your chosen 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 Mooney Bravo 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 the left or right fuel tank.

Engine start attempted and throttle not correctly set

Advice that throttle should be open about 1/4 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 off

Reminder to turn boost pump on for take-off.

In takeoff mode with autopilot on

Reminder to turn off autopilot.

In takeoff mode without "take-off" flaps (10 degrees of flaps)

Warning that you must have take-off flaps set.

In takeoff mode with more than 10 degrees of flaps

Warning that you have too much flaps set and that you should use 10 degrees.

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 KIAS.

Shortly after takeoff

Reminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 85 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 34 inches manifold pressure and 2400 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.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice to get take-off flaps retracted.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice to turn the fuel boost pump off.

Entering cruise mode

Advice to cruise at 34 inches manifold pressure and 2400 RPM and to lean the mixture to achieve peak "T.I.T." (turbine inlet temperature) being less than 1750 degrees and usually around 1650 degrees.



Descent and Landing

Descending and below maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 110 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.

Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 110 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 75 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 being used for more than 40 seconds with engine off

Advice that, depending on temperature, boost pump can be used for up to 40 seconds before starting.

Fuel boost pump on shortly after starting

Reminder to turn boost pump off.

Loss of engine while airborne

Advice that the best glide speed in this aircraft is 93 KIAS when fully loaded and slower
if lighter - check kneeboard reference speeds.

Engine fire started

Warning that the 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 174 KIAS which is 'vNO' (Maximum Structural Cruising Speed) for this aircraft.

Speed approaching vNE

Warning that you are close to exceeding 195 KIAS which is 'vNE' (Never Exceed Speed) for this aircraft.

Decreasing speed approaching vSO

Warning that stall speed with full flaps is 59 KIAS which is 'vSO' (Stalling Speed in Landing Configuration) for this aircraft.

Decreasing speed approaching vS

Warning that stall speed with flaps up is 66 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 110 KIAS the pilot may use flaps.

Engine running and alternator off

Reminder to turn alternator 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%.
