Best way to watch your takeoff/landing as a passenger?

Recommended Posts

Without using these fiddly replay cameras and addons? Is there a way to watch your takeoff and landings from a passenger point of view? I fly mostly Fenix A320 and PMDG 737 and love to watch my takeoff/landings from the passenger wing view and I want to be able to do this in the most quickest and efficient way possible without having to resort to replay apps. I really wish someone would create a 1st person passenger addon for MSFS so we can play as a virtual passenger.

But will we be able to sit in the cabin as a passenger while the Pilot/FO does the flying for us?

well  you could  assign  one  of  your  views  in  the  cabin window  seat  as  i  have  done,  can  sit  there  during  flight looking  at  the  wing or  where  you have  assigned  your  view

yes but what I want is for the Pilot/FO to do the takeoff and landing automatically, so that I can enjoy the view during those phases, without having to constantly do everything myself. It's hard trying to fly the plane while constantly switching back and forth between a passenger and the pilot.

I'm not talking while the plane is enroute, cause that's easy. I am specifically talking about during takeoff and landing. These are the 2 most part of the flight phase that I would like to watch as a passenger, and without an automated pilot flying, this is very difficult or close to impossible to do.

the only  way  to do it   since  there  is  no option for  the pilot/copilot   to  fly  for  you  is  once  you  have taken off  set  autopilot   and  on landing  set  auto land is  the only  way i  can  think off  doing  it.  Since  the  way  you want  to do it  cant  be  done  unless   some one  else   has  a idea

Yes, but I would like to be sit in passenger view from the runway, not after takeoff. This is why I wish there was an addon to let the pilot/fo fly the plane for your entire route, while you can sit back and make cinematic videos.

Just record the flight and then re-run it and go sit in the passenger seat

Well, many default plane(s) will pretty much fly the whole flight if you want it to. Since you don't want to be in the cockpit anyways, there's probably little practical difference between whether you are flying the latest expensive mega-plane or one of the defaults...

I normally just quickly pop out into the drone cam.

If you're prepared to trust it (as it can be hit or miss especially as far as landing on the runway rather than somewhere close by), you could use the AI pilot (different from autopilot) accessed through the drop down menu. When it behaves, it will control the flight from start to finish, whether that's cold & dark or runway to runway.

Has the AI gotten better and will it work on planes like the Fenix A320 and PMDG 737?

You can't really do this very well at the moment.  The AI pilot is pretty poor and doesn't work on more advanced aircraft.  

And before everyone comes in and goes "It's a flight simulator, so fly the plane yourself", yeah, great, it is and we do.  But it's quite cool to have a flight on in the background while working, and the AI copilot with a custom pax view can nearly do this, but not quite.  It is frustrating.
