To meet the needs of pilots eager of advanced simulation, the EG Aircraft Concorde has been built to be the most realistic possible.
All controls in the cockpit are functional (in mouselook and on the HUD) and the various procedures to follow are rather complex and requires some training.
But in real life, there is a copilot to help the captain with the various procedures. In the EG Aircraft Concorde , as captain, you can choose to do all the work yourself, or to share with a copilot.
A / Controls buttons:
From left to right:
1 / "Left stairs" :Set out or remove the stairs, and opens (or closes) the door. (Note: for the owner only the door can be opened and closed simply by clicking on it)
2 / "Right stairs": idem "Left stairs"
3 / "Copilot":Gives or takes back the control of/from the aircraft to the copilot. Red = Pilot in control, Green = Copilot in control.
4 / "Flight instruments": enables or disables the panel of flight instruments (enabled by default)
5 / "Aux Cde": enables or disables the auxiliary control panel (disabled by default)
6 / "Eng Cde": enables or disables the engines control panel (disabled by default)
7 / Camera default (rear view of the aircraft. Recommended for flying)
8 / Camera taxiing (Located above the cockpit, to better view of the ground for taxiing)
9 / Cabin Camera (View from the interior of the passenger cabin . Works only in stand still position so you can see if all passengers
10 / Camera blocked (can fly your plane as a radio controlled model)
B / Panel "Flight instruments":
1 / Speedometer in km / h
2 / Speedometer in Mach
3 / Attitude Indicator (artificial horizon)
4 / Heading Indicator (compass)
5/ Landing gear lever (green = gear down, gear up red =)
6 / VSI (Vertical speed indicator)
7 / Altimeter (needle shows hundreds of meters, the digit indicate the total height in meters
8/ Brakes handle (brakes on = red, brakes rekeased = green (Right below the altimeter)
9/ Nose position lever: (click on the right handside of the red lever, where you can see digits)
UP = Cruise osition
V/0°= Parking position
5 ° =Taxiing position
Down = Landing position
10 / Flaps handle (Up or DOWN , right under the nose lever)
C / Panel "Aux Cde"
1 / "Auxilliary battery": auxiliary battery (bat)
2 / "Auxilliary power": auxiliary power unit (APU)
3 / "position lights": position lights
4 / "Landing lights": Landing lights
5 / "strobe lights": IFR Flashing lights
6 / "cabin lights": lighting of the passenger cabin
7 / "Cabin Pressure": air conditioning and pressurization of the passenger cabin
8 / "Signal Belts" seat belt signal
D / Panel "Cde Eng":
1st group: a /Engine 1 starting indicator
b /Engine 1 Start switch, turns green
c / Engine 1 fuel pump inducator
2nd, 3rd, 4rd group: same as the first group, but for engines 2,3 and 4
2nd line:Electric,pneumatic and hydraulic systems, engines 1, 2, 3 and 4
3em line: LED status of engines 1, 2, 3 and 4
4th line: Reheats state of engines 1, 2, 3 and 4
5 th line:Engines 1,2,3 and for reheats switches
1 / Climb = "arrow down" and down "arrow up"
2 / Turn right or left, right/left arrows
3 / Increase power "PgUp", reduce power "PgDown"
A / Startup engines:
The engines need plenty of energy to get started. initially, we obtain the energy required from the Auxilliary power unit (APU) which itself needs the energy supplied by electric batteries. The engine 1 will provide the energy required to start engines 2.3 and 4. This allows to run the startup sequence of these last three engines simultaneously.
1 / Battery ON
2 / Auxiliary Power ON
3 / Push the button to start the engine 1. (To make it easier, we chose to automate startup phases)
Phase 1 launch on pneumatic circuit of the apu. (First light orange)
Phase 2 fuel injection (the first green light, the second orange light)
Phase 3 Start (all witnesses to green)
4 /Switch on the electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic systems of the engine 1 (one triple switch altogether)
5 /Push the button to start engines 2.3 and 4. (Indicators same as motor 1)
6 / Switch on the electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic systems of the engines 2.3 and 4 (triple coupled switches for each engine)
Note: Do not use reheats while taxiing. Turn on those reheats right before takeoff.
B / Take-off settings
a / Flaps UP
b / Nose position V / 0 °
c/ Reheats 1,2,3 and 4 ON
d / V1 150 km / h (rotation)
e / V2 300 km / h (takeoff)
C / Cruise:
For obvious reasons, the flight speed was reduced compared to the actual speed.
For sim crossings, we recommend not to fly beyond 70% power.
You can significantly improve the quality of simcrossings flying as much as possible during crossings in a straight line.
D / Landing settings:
c / Minimum speed 300 Km / h
a / Flaps Down
b / Nose Down position
c / Atittude + 10 ° minimum
d / maximum vertical speed -1.5 m / s
The update is done automatically by rezzing the plane.
All updates are free.
The Concorde will not be painted in any other livery that the two existing versions.
However you can request a personalized registration number (accordingly with the current registrations guidelines.)
This will cost 500 linden.
We thank Serena Lexington and Sally for their many test flights and participation in the development.
Special thanks to Terrance Christenson, for a flight test in a, let us say, not very accomodating position. (See photo)
