Google Flight Mapping . View a map of your flight route and even share with friends!YesYes
Team of 3 talking Flight Instructors, with optional text captions displayed in X-PlaneYesYes
Scoring system rates all phases of flight: taxi, take off, cruise, approach, landing & moreYesYes
Fly anywhere in the world with an instructorYesYes
Easy to use! Land anywhere you like and your instructors will know which runway you have chosen. Just get lined up with a runway ahead of you when you descend in landing mode. The instructor will look ahead, figure which runway you are heading for and announce where you are going to land. YesYes
Instructor knows which runway you are taking off from. Instructor will comment and give advice on the runway you have selected. YesYes
Instructor knows which runway you are landing at. Even without ILS, and will give advice on how to land. YesYes
No need to land on a fixed point on the runway. Any reasonable landing on a runway will get a reasonable score. YesYes
Spoken Teaching Tips. Option so that FSFlyingSchool will speak a series of helpful tips when you fly. Tips are always in the same voice and are clearly different from a normal 'instructor' voice. These tips are like training wheels on a bicycle and are telling you how to use FSFlyingSchool and X-Plane itself. Once you have got the basics of these operations down, you may wish to turn these basic tips off. YesYes
Friendly scoring system. Rewards all flights which were basically safe - higher scores require plenty of skill. If you can walk away from your landing - you will get a score. If you crash - you will not! YesYes
Numerical data added to log book. Shows details of flight performance, such as landing speed, distance from threshold, approach accuracy and more. YesYes
