FDC Live Cockpit! 2011
As you can see from the table above, the transition between phases is based either on events in Flight Simulator, or in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011. The flight phases allow FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 to provide you with checklists and cabin announcements on ALL flights, not just adventures created in dedicated adventure creation software.
Missed approaches and Touch-and-go
Most pilots will at some point or another have experienced a missed approach. This can happen due to wind conditions, visibility, and other technical reasons. You will also sometimes have to perform missed approaches in Flight Simulator. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 will in these cases automatically issue a Gear up call. However, you must manually restart the Approach checklist, should you wish to repeat it. You do this by hitting Ctrl-Shift-Space.
In case of a missed approach, the GPWS will be reset, and you will receive the GPWS calls again when you start descending to attempt a new approach.
Note! When you perform a missed approach, the flight phases will not be changed. You will still be in the Approach phase as you go around and attempt a new approach.
Pilots of smaller aircraft frequently perform Touch’N’Gos at various airports. When you perform a Touch’N’Go, FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 will follow you, and automatically return to the Descent phase as you take off from the runway again. The After Takeoff and Climb checks will be played over again, and as you descend to make your ap- proach to another airport, the Approach checklist will once again play automatically (if you are using the Auto checklist mode).
Starting a new flight
After completing a flight at the destination airport, you can start a new flight by hitting Ctrl-Shift-A.
Note! Disconnecting and reconnecting FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 from Flight Simulator will also reset all flight parameters.
