Fly with a virtual instructor by your side. FSFlyingSchool adds a talking instructor to X-Plane 10. You will never have to fly alone again!
Previous versions of FSFlyingSchool for X-Plane 9 and X-Plane 10 were created to give a detailed flying experience when flying just one specific airplane - the Cessna 172.
FSFlyingSchool's new product for X-Plane 10 can be used with lots of different airplanes, small, medium and large, and the list of supported airplanes is growing. All these planes are supported at the same level of detail which has been popular with FSFlyingSchool's FSX and Prepar3D add-ons and for which FSFlyingSchool has won 4 consecutive PC Pilot Magazine Classic Product Awards.

- Talking Flight Instructor
- Scoring system rates all phases of flight: taxi, take off, cruise, approach, landing & more

- No need to land on a fixed point on the runway. Any reasonable landing on a runway will get a reasonable score.
- 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.

FSInventions are the brilliant minds behind the award winning FSFlyingSchool series that allows you to fly with a virtual instructor by your side. Previous versions of FSFlyingSchool were designed around improving your flight experience with just one aircraft, the Cessna 172, whereas this new version features an ever growing list of compatible aircraft. All of these aircraft support the same level of detail that helped make earlier versions of this product such a big hit.
From the Beechcraft Baron 58 to the Boeing 777 Worldliner, aircraft of all sizes are making their way onto the list of compatible aircraft, but this is not limited to those that are supplied with X-Plane 10 by default. You can add support for as many aircraft as you like, be them freeware or payware addons, or other stock aircraft that haven't made the list just yet. All the information you need on how to do this is included with the download; all you have to do is supply a little bit of data about the aircraft, and you're good to go!
Your new artificially intelligent, talking flight instructor, is incredibly versatile and very observant. Your instructor can tell which runway you are taking off from, and will give you advice on how to proceed. Likewise, they can tell which runway you are landing at and, even without ILS, can give you advice on how to land – reporting runway length, altitude and surface type when on approach. If you feel the conversation is a bit one-sided, there is an optional Voice Command Pack, that allows you to talk to the instructor.
A scoring system, accurately rates all stages of your flight, from taxi, take off, cruise, approach, landing and more. It gives you a detailed breakdown of your flight as opposed to just a straightforward summary, so that you can see what areas you need to improve on. Other tools like the Pilot Briefing Tool take this a step further, by analyzing all of your flights, in order to isolate areas of your performance that need improving. Overall, the scoring is not too rigorous, and any flight that is basically safe will result in a positive score, but the higher scores require skill, as well as safe practices.
FSFlyingSchool for X-Plane 10 is the development to the series that everyone has wanted, and we're all very pleased with the results.
