Greatest Airlines 737-400 Software-Long Learning Curve?

Recommended Posts

I understand that the "Greatest Airlines 737-400 for FS 2002 takes a long time to master. Is this correct? Most people seem to like the sim. However, I do not want to spend weeks learning how to master the sim. Is this sim worth the money, and how long does it take to master it?I am proficient with the FS 2002 737, but not with the additional electronics that the Greatest Airlines comes with. Thank youStanner

That's a bit like asking how long is a bit of string, how are we to know how intelligent you are!The FMC is the most difficult part of the package (Flight Management Control) however there are 2 particularly good articles on the web site that you can read and follow.Aside from that I don't think the sim is any different from any of the FS2K2 aircraft except a few more features and a bit more realism.Go for it and enjoy - it's not a matter of life and death you know...

Overall you can get the hang of it in a few hours. The FMC is where you will need to take the time to read the tutorials. I found that the audio tutorial that comes with the FMC when you load it up will walk you through it. It will help you set up a test flight step by step. This is where I learned it at first. I also suggest that you put 2 hours aside to read the tutorial on the FMC and follow along with the GA 737 loaded up. It is a fantastic narrow body add-on to be honest I fly the GA 737 99% of my flights and I fly almost everyday :)Also a company had made a very nice VHS video on how to operate the GA 737 properly and it will walk you through everything step by step. The video is a bit on the high side $50 but it looks like it is worth every $$$. Several people on this board have it and love the video.John
