About the GPWS
FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 features a built-in Ground Proximity Warning System – GPWS for short. Some panels already support a GPWS, in which case you can easily disable FDC Live Cockpit! 2011`s GPWS on the GPWS panel.
The GPWS produces audible warnings and alerts when various events occur in the simulator. While most of the features – such as Low terrain and Bank angle warnings – are not connected to the flight phases of FDC Live Cockpit! 2011, features related to the landing and final approach of the aircraft – such as altitude readings – will only be activated when FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 is in the Approach or Landing phases.
How to disable the GPWS
In the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 main window, click Options.
In the Main Options panel, click GPWS.
In the GPWS Settings panel, deselect the GPWS Master option.
