NEW FSFlyingSchool 2020 for X-Plane!!

Features of the FSFlyingSchool Detail Pack for Twin Otter for FSX and P3Dv3


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


You can master this rugged, all-purpose aircraft!


- Works with Aerosoft Twin Otter Extended!


With the addition to FSFlyingSchool of the Detail Pack for Twin Otter, your instructors will be looking at your aircraft and your performance in your Twin Otter 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 Twin Otter. Weight management, yaw damper, anti-ice, power levers, propeller levers, fuel levers, feathering, autofeather, flap speeds, before takeoff procedures, starting the engines, landing techniques and much more.

Includes a number of Twin Otter 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 Twin Otter you are flying.

Cold and Dark

On ground with no engines running and parking brake off

Advice to set parking brake.

Shortly after flight starts on ground with D. C. Master on

Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.

Shortly after flight starts on ground with D. C. Master on

Warning that the pilot must wait until Ng stabilizes above 12% before introducing fuel with the fuel lever when starting an engine or an engine fire will most likely result..



Starting Engines

Engine start attempted

Warning that the pilot must wait until Ng stabilizes above 12% before introducing fuel with the fuel lever when starting an engine.

Engine start attempted and power levers not correctly set

Advice that power levers should both be at idle when starting the engines.

Engine start attempted and propeller levers not correctly set

Advice that propeller levers should both be either fully forward or fully aft when starting the engines, according to the preference set by the pilot at the Aircraft Screen of FSFlyingSchool. This allows the pilot to choose which of the two different methods are used by the aircraft owners he/she is flying with on that flight.

Engine start attempted and parking brake not set

Warning that parking brake must be set when starting the engines.



Taxi Out

Shortly after moving in taxi mode

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

Advice that you typically want to land with 40 degrees flaps.

Descent to around 400 feet AGL while landing

Reminder to touchdown with around 3 degrees nose up pitch.

Descent to around 300 feet AGL while landing

Reminder that power levers should be idle at touchdown.

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.
