Yup, have a quick flip to the page in the manual which shows what all the buttons on the FS2Crew panel do and then give it a go. If anything then puzzles you, you will know exactly where to look in the manual rather than having to plow through it all at once.The manual itself is very good, but it can be a bit overwhelming when you are new to FS2Crew on first glance, so simply diving in is a good way to get your head around things. Note too that the checklists are all on the aircraft's kneepad in FS, in the order that you will use them, so you can keep track of what you are supposed to be doing easily by giving that a look.The way the 737 operates these days is very accurately modeled in FS2Crew, and the gist of that is: The Captain (i.e. you) has responsibility for the areas that relate to the control and navigation of the aircraft (i.e. your instrument panel and the autopilot settings in the MCP). The pilot monitoring (i.e. your FS2Crew co-pilot) has responsibility for everything else. The only exception to that split is the engine thrust and the fire panel, which is the responsibility of both pilots. As long as you know that, you won't go far wrong and will understand what your co-pilot is doing in between checklists throughout your flight.Al
