A major part of any good aircraft today is the fact that it comes with a charming and effective range of tools to make controlling and managing the flight as easy as it possibly can be. To help you manage your aircraft, each model provided in here comes with a charming and effective range of additions which help to make FS2004 still feel relatively modern and upbeat. Some of the major changes included are in the cockpit – these include the following;
Two major factors of any good and safe flight in a modern aircraft – the Primary Flight Display, and the Multi-Function Flight Display. These are vital to any flight going as well as it possibly should.
These also come with a fully switchable set of EICAS displays, which can give you all the help that you need in making the displays work to your advantage in analyzing a flights potential outcome.
Thanks to the major changes and improvements brought in by these features, you can make use of information on everything that you need to succeed. FUEL, ENGINE, DOORs and MAP features are all used in your EICAS displays for analysis.
Centre consoles with an FMC are a huge benefit to your long-term improvement and change, with radio controls that come with transponders, trim wheels, throttle and engine control features all accessible to your when you decide to start moving forward.
Upper panels with around 100 real and deposited switches are included which make a massive difference to your overall comprehension and control of your aircraft. If you are ever struggling to make full use of the cockpit, then all of these features are more than likely just what you need to do that!
Seatbelt and no smoking signs are both included for another layer of authenticity. Both signs also come with that trademark acoustic sound that add to the atmosphere of the cockpit even more.
Many of the most important features of a cockpit come from how you utilize your auto-pilot – and Airbus have you covered. They provide access to various features and additions that you can use to make the flight a bit simpler to manage, including ILD, FD, ALT, VS, HDG, NAV, SPeeD, Mach, Loc, Auto-throttle and QNH – each of these can be absolutely vital in helping you make the very most of your aircraft, helping you fly with far more precision and car than you may have in the past.
Another major benefit of this aircraft mod comes from the 3D panels that use a 1024 x 1024 pixel texture set to make them look the best that they can. Likewise, 1280 X 720 pixel textures are included in the 2D panels to make it look pristine.
However, that’s not all! This modification package also includes a fully operational Flight Management Computer. This will make a telling difference to how you manage and co-ordinate your flights, dictating how successful you’ll be by giving you access to;
15 different menus that all have the varying information, details and analysis that you need to become a far more effective and progressive pilot moving forward. Everything in each menu will ensure that you are learning and continually improving flight information.
Keep yourself on the right track with your aircraft by having access to miscellaneous flight parameters – this might not sound like much, but these gauges can play a massive use in your overall flight planning.
The use of flight plans also help to that effect, ensuring that you can keep making progressive changes and moving forward with improved flight accuracy.
Calculations of courses can be managed by using analogical winds, high level and aerodrome of destinations to bring the whole system together and give you a fresh, effective system to follow.
You can also follow on to waypoints relatively easily by using the FMC as it greatly expands the way that you can follow waypoints, making sure you greatly minimize the risk of losing track of your destination or how to reach that location on the map.
Coursegauge and auto pilot control has been added in, as well. This makes sure that your FMC can play a critical role in your overall flight progression and format.
