FDC Live Cockpit! 2011
2011, the engineer is present if you select the Boeing 747-200 Jumbo Jet. The engineer will also be available in any performance file you add having three crew members.
As for the other cockpit crew members, you can select which calls the engineer should make, or „switch him off“ altogether.
The Virtual Co-Pilot mode
In a real aircraft, the co-pilot will respond to flap and gear calls during the flight. The Virtual Co-Pilot mode in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 allows you to enable the co-pilot to respond to these calls by setting flaps and gear automatically according to the pilot’s calls.
To enable the Virtual Co-Pilot mode:
In the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 main window, click Options.
In the Main Options panel, click Flightdeck Calls.
In the lower left section of the panel, select the Virtual Co-Pilot
Click Save Changes and Close to exit the panel.
While the Virtual Co-Pilot mode is active your co-pilot will automatically extend and retract flaps and lower and retract the landing gear according to the captain’s calls. If you would rather take care of these operations yourself, simply disable the Virtual Co-Pilot mode by deselecting the Virtual Co-Pilot Mode checkbox.
FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 divides your flight into several flight phases automatically based on various criteria. The checklists available in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 can be synchronized with these flight phases, or they can be advanced manually. The various modes are discussed in detail below.
