2 / Attitude indicator, shows the flight attitude
3 / Heading indicator indicates your heading (in degrees)
4 / Vertical speed indicator (VSI) indicates the rate of climb or descent (in meters / second)
5 / Altimeter indicates altitude (in meters)

1 and 2 / Ignition for right and left engine (automatic start)
below there are two power indicators (dial and digital)

shows your location on the regions of blacksea, nautilus, uss, and Corsica.
Z-map zooms out, Z + zooms the map in.

1 / Up "arrow down" and down "arrow up"
2 / Turn right or left, respectively "right arrow" or "left arrow"
3 / Increase the power button "PgUp" to reduce the power button "PgDown"

startl: Start the left engine

The engine power can be controlled directly by chat command
0 = 0%
1 = 10%
etc etc up to ...
10 = 100%
These chat commands allow you to reach the desired power directly without having to go through all the steps successively

Once seated in the aircraft:
1 / Turn your nav lights on to show other users that the aircraft is under control.
2/ If ATC is available, contact them and ask for instructions and take off clearance for your flight.
3 / Start the engine
4 / Press PgUp up to a maximum of 30% power or use the appropriate chat commands (indicating chat)
Note: from 50 mph you risk injury, but you can use this power in a straight line (only) to save time.
5 / Aim the plane with the left and right arrows to the runway to take off following the instructions of the Airport control

1/ Aim to a clear area. Make sure that no boat is not on your path.
2/ Increase power up to 100%
3/ Reaching 85 mph you can rotate and climb The aircraft gets a high drag effect due to water friction and will bounce off without really getting airborn giving a (false) impression of heaviness.Pull up the nose drastically. Once the rate of climb is actually, positive (positive VSI), reduce the pitch by lowering the nose in order to avoid stalling right after take off.

As for take off , contact the ATC and ask for instructions and necessary clearance for your landing.
1/ Align the aircraft on the sea landing area at an altitude between 70 and 100 m and at a good distance (minimum 200m) Make sure that no boat is on your path.
2/ Reduce power down to 10%
3/ Hold the aircraft descending toward the surface of the water. (A descent less than -1 on VSI is dangerous for a proper landing), be sure to flare before touching the surface so that the rear portion of the floats touches first.
4/ At touchdown ( 0 VSI), reduce the throttle down to 0%
5/ Join your dock by following the directions of control at sea (if any).
6/ Activate the brakes to simulate the mooring of the aircraft.

NOTE: Your plane can fly through full parcels.
