Cabin information About cabin information
FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 supports three different types of cabin information. First, there are the cabin announcements that are made by the cabin crew. These are pre-recorded announcements, and FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 contains five different recordings for various languages and accents. Second, there are the user´s files messages. These are your own recordings and contain information to your passengers. The user files are timed and played automatically. Third, there are the flightdeck announcements.

The last category also includes the turbulence warning message, which you can activate by hitting Ctrl-W.
