Congratulations on the purchase of a EG-Aicraft plane and welcome aboard your DeHavilland 88 Comet EG Aircraft

To meet the requirements of pilots eager to advanced simulation, the DeHavilland 88 Comet EG Aircraft was built to be as realistic as possible.
The controls in the cockpit are fully functional (in mouselook and on the HUD)

To fly in mouselook (subjective view) is really an experience you should try.
In the event that clicking on the buttons do not work in this mode, make sure you do not wear a hud that prevents this feature (some translators causes this problem)

To facilitate the operations of this plane and to ease the cross sims, best is to remove everything that is not absolutely necessary to your avatar.
Of course, this advice also applies to your passengers.

We strongly recommend that you read this manual carefully.

* To sit in the plane, right click on the plane and click on "pilot" or left click on the seat.
