You need to assign what view you want to the cooley hat on your controller in FSX\Settings. Rethe Zoom, press the backspace key to reset it, then use the + and - keys to zoom in and out.

How to know if the aircraft is airworthy?

From a pilot's point of view, every aircraft comes from the factory with a checklist of things to look at specifically before every flight to ensure airworthiness. It's generally called a walk-around inspection, checking flight controls for security and condition, tire condition, engine for obvious problems. propeller, fuel and oil quantities. and many other things. The walk around also includes checking to ensure all required paperwork is there including weight and balance, airworthiness certificate, aircraft registration, operator's manual. etc. I would also check the log book to verify the transponder check was done within the past 24 months and the annual or 100 hour inspection is current. From an A&P mechanic point of view much the same applies, however I would look much closer at the maintenance logs for engine and airframe.

  • Straight and Level Cruise:
Start by setting the RPM to a cruise setting of 2200 RPM, using the throttle. This should give us a cruise speed of about 108 Knots.
Use the yoke to maintain level flight by keeping the small aircraft symbol level and exactly on the "Artificial Horizon" line of the six pack . Keep scanning the rest of the six pack to help maintain level flight. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning, climbing or descending or if the airspeed or altitude starts to change. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and wait to see the response.

  • Climbing Phase:
We will climb by increasing the throttle to full throttle. Now you can pull back on the yoke to raise the aircraft nose to about ten degrees above the horizon. Now set your climb speed (using the yoke), by changing this 10 degree climb, until you have an airspeed of about 80 knots. meanwhile continuing to scan the six pack at all times and make sure that nothing is changing that you don't want to change. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning. or if the airspeed starts to change.
This Aircraft will stall (in a turn) at approximately 53 knots (no flaps) so keep your turns shallow and avoid any speed below 75 knots to allow yourself a margin of safety. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and stay well out of any limit zones that are indicated on the instruments.

  • Descent Phase:
A descent to a lower altitude is done by reducing the throttle to an engine speed of about 1500 RPM while setting the air/fuel mixture at full rich (red knob fully inward). If you intend to be descending a long time at low engine power, then you should use carburetor heat to prevent icing. At reduced RPM, the engine will not be producing as much heat so we may have to put on the carburetor heat, or you can occasionally increase the engine speed for a minute to gain some heat and clear the engine.

Commercial have lights flashing whilst in the air. why?

It's not just commercial aircraft. In the US (and most of the world), all aircraft will have those lights during night operations. [There are a few exceptions, such as aircraft without electrical systems - and yes, there are such things.]

The steady lights on the wings are called "position lights" (also called "navigation lights" or "anti-collision lights" or similar names). The one on the left wing tip is steady red (that's the left side, as you are sitting IN the aircraft). The one on the right side wing tip is green. There will normally also be a white tail position light (steady) on the tail.

In addition, most aircraft have strobe lights. A white light on each wingtip is common, as is a red strobe light on the tail or belly.

The purpose of the lights is two-fold (well, actually, the only REAL purpose is to help avoid collisions!). First, the strobe lights are there primarily to catch your attention. A flashing light is much easier to spot than a fixed light. The other lights are there to indicate direction. At night, it is very hard to quickly determine the direction of travel (left to right, away vs. straight at you, etc.). But by determining which colors are visible, you can quickly determine the orientation of the aircraft. Whelen (a primary producer of aircraft lighting) has a web page with nice diagrams:,d.eXY

Hope that helps. [And the short answer to your question is - because one midair collision can ruin your whole day (or night)!]

Loaded but wont run when activated

Check this link for more info...

Also don't know your OS ?
Flight Simulator 2004 doesn't run correctly on Windows 8. It runs on my Windows 8 laptop bought in April 2013. But, none of the aircraft, including any add-ons, show up in the preview window - it is always black. Also, If I download weather and try to save a flight, when I go back to that "saved" flight, it always reverts to the default flight with the Cessna @ the default airport. If anyone knows how to make the flights save, on the Windows 8 platform, please let me know - likewise, with the aircraft previews. Flight Simulator 2004 did quite well on the Windows XP platform for me.

Could the resistance to the starter be the reason that my starter is starting slow?

Jessy is correct, but there are a number of other points to note.

You didn\'t mention the aircraft type nor engine type, so I can\'t be too specific. The location of the battery is important; some aircraft have the battery in the back, some under a seat and some in the engine bay. The distance from the battery will have an effect on the starter. Earlier aircraft types have been known to have aluminium battery cables. If they are fitted on your aircraft you should change them to copper. (Most copper cables will be \'tinned\' so they will look silver, don\'t confuse them with aluminium). The engine is mounted with rubber mounting blocks, there should be a large earth strap or cable fixed to the engine from a \'ground\' point on the aircraft or engine mount. This earth lead is very important and should be very well secured. If it is not the starter will find an earth through other electrical leads such as the \'screening\' around the magneto switch leads or the alternator field leads. This can cause a fire. What I normally do is to take each earth lead and secure it using a \'shakeproof\' or \'star\' type locking washer between the lead head and the engine or airframe ground point, (like a sandwich). This helps to make a sound connection. The live leads should not be overlooked either, nor the condition of the battery and the battery terminals. Lastly, some of the smaller aircraft engines were plagued with bad starting due to the fact that the starter turned the engine too fast and the magneto impulse coupling retracted so not allowing the impulse to catch on the impulse pawl, thus the ignition was not retarded nor was the impulse \'wound up\' to give a good spark. The solution to this problem was to fit starters with a different gearing that slowed down the cranking speed. There is a Lycoming service letter on this subject. So, check that you have the correct starter fitted to the engine type - not all starters are the same!

When are the spoilers parts used in airplanes?

Spoilers are used during landing in order to increase the drag of the wing and decrease the amount of lift. They have two functions during flight: make the airplane descend or slow the airplane down before landing. Also, during landing, the spoilers are used in order to keep the plane on the ground and improve the efficiency of the brakes.

This is a calibration issue for the controller you are using. Recalibrate it. It is receiving and elevator down instruction.

maybe your 're to far away from the engine and you cant hear it, even in real. but i dont think yhats it. check your audio settings.

i cant think of anything better, maybe u just need a patch...
