  1. I'm not familiar with the file you're looking for; however, there is an alternative air file available. If you're interested check on flightsim.com for bell206b2.zip by David Gibson.
  2. The answer to your ADF needle question is that it is on the RMI. The button on the left bottom of the RMI switches one needle between VOR 1 and the ADF. The button on the right bottom switches the other needle between VOR 2 and the ADF.
  3. In FSX Acceleration, the PWR button is on the unit just to the right of the EXEC button. (Maybe yours don't look the same.)
  4. I don't have that edition; but, there should be a power switch (marked PWR) half way down on it's right hand side
  5. From the VC, you can hit Shift-6 and it will bring up the panel I noted. You can also turn on the same "Lear Pilot" switch on the pilot side knee console of the VC.
  6. The autopilot is turned on from the electric panel that opens up with "Shift 6". Click the "Lear Pilot" switch on the right hand side up in order to turn it on. After that, you should be able to steer with the controls at the top of the VC panel.
  7. I have FSX Acceleration; and, with that you would click on Current Aircraft-Change, and then at the bottom of the screen full of thumbnail pictures click on Show All Variations, just like polosim's picture above.
  8. Try going to: Settings Customize Aircraft Show Cockpit Tooltips And, make sure it is not checked.
  9. Also, the FS9 scenery add-on file "alaskff1.zip" will work in FSX and adds Northern Lights to many Alaskan airports. That file's available at Flightsim.com.
  10. Never really tried using the outside view. As for add-ons to land, never have used or know of any.
  11. This is some information once garnered in bits and pieces from hovercontrol.com. "You'll need a joystick and pedals or a joystick with a twist grip to substitute for pedals. (I'd like to have pedals but I use a twist grip.) Joystick settings: Set to the maximum sensitivity (far right) with the null zone set to the minimum (far left). Note: This is very important. Realism: Set medium to maximum and disable the auto-rudder. I use maximum. VC View: Backed off to the highest zoom factor between 50 and 60 -- then angled down so that I can see the gauges and have a view from a bit above the horizon all the way down to the lowest point possible -- preferably the ground between my feet. Note: This is a matter of taste. Use EXTREMELY small movements on BOTH the cyclic and collective are critical. Review the instructions in the FSX Learning Center. Fly to a hover just before your landing point and then, and only then, move on and land slowly. A good rate of speed for a helicopter landing is the same as a slow walk. The default Bell is a good place to start. Practice a lot and with the same helicopter and the SAME VIEW EVERY TIME. A good practice routine is just taking off from one end of a runway, attempting to fly down the runway at less than 150 feet, slowing down and landing between the numbers at the other end of the runway. It takes a lot of practice but it is well worth it."
  12. By and large, after you read all about it, the key to helicopters is practice, practice, practice. Initially I found scenery with a roof top landing pad. I flew the short distance from the ground to the pad and back again about 50 times. After the 100 or so landings, I got it.
  13. In FSX, when you are in a normal flight, go to the Map page. There you can either drag the airplane icon around or you can enter latitude, longitude and elevation in the boxes on the left. Your position will change accordingly.
