PASSING ON THE CONTROLS TO THE COPILOT
To pass on the controls to your copilot, or to take them back type "copilot" in the local public chat
You can give your copilot a "Hud TB30 copilot" included in the box
Warning: The copilot can give the controls back to the pilot typing "copilot" buthe cannot take them from the pilot in command
Beacon : This system allows the plane to send you a message in local chat that gives you its position inworld. Handy to retreive it in case of crash
commands are :
"beaconon" = System on
"beaconoff" = System off ( Not recommended)
Smokes (one at a time)
sw = White smok
sr = Red smoke
sb = Blue smoke
sg = Green smoke
sy = Yellow smoke
sp = Pink smoke
The engine power settings can be also handled by chat commands
0 = Idle
1 = 10%
.... and so on up to
10 = 100%
These chat commands give you the opportunity to get instantly the desired power setting without having to get through all the steps settings
Once seated in the plane
1: Switch the nav lights on
2: In the case an ATC is available contact it and request proper authorizations needed for your flight
3: Start up your engine (start)
4: Get a maximum of 20% power with the PgUp button or using the chat command
Remark using 30% and higher setting to taxi would be risky but you can use it to save time (only on straight lines)
1: Taxi to the runway entrance
2: Align your plane on the runway axis and hold
3: Set the brakes "on" with the b chat command and wait for the complete stop of the plane and wait for your clearance to take off
4: Raise the power to 100% then release the brakes (b)
5: Starting 85mph you can take off
6: raise the landing gear (g)
1: As for take off, contact ATC for landing clearance (if ATC is available)
2: Line up your plane on the landing runway axis at an altitude between 70m and 100m
and about 200m to the runway distance.
Reduce power to 30% (lower setting would get the plane to loose to much speed and would get it into a critical sink).
3: Lower the landing gear (chat command "b")
4 :Maintain a shallow rate of descent (more than -2 on the VSI would be dangerous for landing).
5: On touch down, lower the power to 0% (you may use the "b" chat command to slow the plane down in case of a too fast landing)
6: Taxi to your parking zone following the ground control inputs (if available)
