FSFlyingSchool release V5.8.4, a new version of their add-on for FSX and FS2004 -
New in this version: A demo of new add-on product for FSFlyingSchool Pro: 'On Approach PLUS Pack'
The pilot can now begin an approach, at any runway in the world, on a path that will intersect the final approach path.
The intersecting path can be from the left or the right of the final approach and the pilot can choose to set the length of the intersecting path in nautical miles, or can alternatively let FSFlyingSchool Pro set the length based on the pilot's initial approach speed.
This new feature is a handy way to practice intersecting the glideslope and localizer, or for just practicing "getting onto final".
You can now optionally set the altitude for your approach if you do not wish the program to compute it automatically.
A set of filters allow you to set the minimum and maximum length of a randomly chosen runway. This is a great way to practice short field approaches... or to make sure there is enough room to land that big airliner!
A new filter allows you to set surface type of a randomly chosen runway. How about landing on sand today and planks tomorrow?
The pilot can now choose to set the surface wind for the approach relative to the runway rather than as a compass heading. This makes setting up crosswinds even faster!
FSFlyingSchool Pro v 5.8.4 also adds Instant Help
Instant spoken help you can use immediately while flying Flight Simulator X or 2004.
The Instant Help option at the Settings Screen of FSFlyingSchool PRO adds a whole new level of fun and learning to your flights with Flight Simulator. You hear and see help and tips for controls, instruments and switches immediately while you are flying!
Do you ever think you could use some help up there in the Simulated Skies? FSFlyingSchool PRO Instant Help is ready to help you get familiar with those switches, dials, buttons etc that seem to fill the cockpit and flight deck. Sit back and enjoy as you hear the voice of a friendly instructor who explains the role of the device you operated, immediately, in real time, with optional text captions so you can read the advice too.
Once you operate a device, you won't hear the explanation again for a while: this is to avoid repetition when, for example, turning a device on and off. If you prefer, you can turn off the voice completely and just retain the text captions for reference during your flights. Alternatively, you can turn off the captions and just listen to the voice of the instructor.
Configure the FSFlyingSchool PRO Instant Help option the way you want it!
