FSCaptain is an add-on to Microsoft Flight Simulator FS2004 and FSX (Box and Steam Edition) and to Lockheed Martin's Prepar3d (Version 2 & Version 3) which expands the program so everyone can experience the challenge of professional flying in the modern world of aviation. That's what we mean when we say our goal is "making flight simulators into aviation simulators".

FSCaptain takes the boredom out of Flight Simulator by giving you a reason to fly and a highly realistic professional modern aviation environment in which to prove and develop your skills. You might be an ace at handling your airplane, whether that be a light twin or a B747 or an A380, but can you fly it meeting the demands that real-world Air Transport Pilots face?

FSCaptain provides what Flight Simulator left out in simulating the modern aviation world. You'll have a company to work for, and they will have rules and policies you need to follow. You'll have a flight crew and a cabin crew (if you're flying an airplane large enough -- FSCaptain isn't just for Big Iron, you can be a small plane or bush pilot if you want.) But much more than that. You'll have passengers and/or cargo to haul and the passengers will react and measure your performance -- and so will your employer. What they'll want is for you to make every flight safely and on-time with happy passengers or intact cargo.

As you start your career you'll find that now your flights have much more meaning. You are building a record - a record of professional accomplishment, not just a log of your travels.

You'll also probably find that being given assignments instead of making up your own is a challenge in itself. You'll sometimes be assigned times and airports and into weather conditions that will stretch your skills. (Of course you can set up your own flights if you want to, you're the boss.)

And suddenly with FSCaptain the safe world of Flight Simulator is more like reality. Thunderstorms are dangerous now and need to be avoided. Icing is a real threat (Don't forget to use your anti-ice!), and runways and taxiways can be slippery and dangerous.

Have you been ignoring things like cabin pressure and temperature? You can be sure your passengers won't ignore them, so you better not. And there are birds in the air you could hit, or you could experience any one of dozens of mechanical failures, or have a passenger with a medical emergency, or even have smoke seeping into the passenger cabin. Are you up on your emergency procedures? By default these emergencies are rare, like in the real world, but they can happen.

You may be used to working with ATC realistically, but have you experienced the other side of professional pilot life, dealing with your company and its dispatchers? You will in FSCaptain. Because that's real life in the real world of aviation.

Beyond its commitment to realism, FSCaptain is comprehensive and flexible. You can take on any role you feel up to -- from a newbie cargo captain for a small outfit in a remote area of the world to the prestige of commanding a huge widebody passenger airliner with its substantial cabin crew. You are not limited in the type or size of the aircraft you can start your career with. You can choose to fly for cargo or passenger airlines, or those that do both. Your airline can have easy policies to adhere to, or they can be difficult. You are in control.

You can create your own airlines or fly one of the dozens of real-world ones provided with the package. You can even import AI schedules from inside Flight Simulator or from some AI package websites (any schedules, even those that you may have added from third parties) and make them into FSCaptain airline schedules.

FSCaptain is easy to install and use, but it is not a cakewalk to climb the ladder of success. Each flight you make is graded, and to advance up the pay steps for your airline requires a minimum time in hours flown for each advancement along with a minimum average flight score for the level you are currently on. Much of your flight score is based on your on-time performance -- just like in the real world. But also, passenger satisfaction and adherence to company policies as well as safe operating practices are all factored in.

You will feel the pressure real pilots feel to meet schedules and be on-time, but not to cut corners with safety. Your flying skills will mostly determine your ability to keep the customers happy while they are riding with you, but your timing and communication skills are important too!

If you want more realism and a more professional approach to the job of being a virtual airline pilot (cargo or passenger) FSCaptain might be for you! Try it and see -- the demo is free and does everything the registered program does, except allow takeoffs from anywhere in the world.

REVIEWS
\"Is it worth your money? It is priced high compared to other add-on’s like quality aircraft or scenery. It is a well developed product and you will enjoy using it. If you want to justify this purchase you can simply say, “I can use this add-on in FSX or FS2004 for every flight while I may not use an airport add-on or aircraft on every flight”. If you can’t say that with confidence then leave it for now and revisit it after doing more flying.\"

After trying fspassenger, i tried fscaptain and this product is one of the best addons i have ever known. It brings a whole new dimension to your sim but requires a bit of reading and practice at the beginning. Nevertheless after 2 test flights i was fully able to use each and every feature of this product.

So don't hesitate if you're looking for a more immersive and realistic sim.

Works perfectly with every known aircraft addons out there.

If you don't belong to a virtual airline and want to put some purpose and career tracking behind your flight time, this product will do the job. It brings together a lot of features from other programs and adds some slick scheduling and dispatch functions.
I'd recommend using the demo for a solid week before making your decision. You might find the audio functions a bit too game like (and annoying) if you're a hardcore simmer. With my VA's ACARS client, PFPX, EFB, Vatsim, GSX, and the load managers from my commercial aircraft, I don't have much use for the product.
I don't think there's anything fundamentally or functionally wrong with the product, but it's more of a novelty than a tool for someone like me. Depending the way you prefer to simulate, you might find the program great if you fully commit to it, or you could find it burdensome and redundant if you already have a host of other programs in your routine.

I want to give this SIX Stars. Five stars for a absolutely brilliant program. Not only does this software re-invent purpose for flying, it's interface blends in with the airliner environment. The extra star is for the developers commitment to continuing to improve and enhance an already excellent piece of work. FSPassengers is now on the shelf.

I've been using FSPassengers for years, but its focus on earning money and micromanaging everything wasn't the sort of thing I was looking for. It was rather a stop-gap for me. Now FSCaptain is something different. It provides continuous work load in the cockpit. It's beautifully integrated into FSX with a professional-looking gauge that's easy to use and has no performance hit. It took some fiddling to set up the load map for 3rd party aircraft, but they made it as easy as possible (well-explained in the manual). I've spent about 20 minutes, and I had an airline set up (based on a real world one - schedule included). I love the background sounds, and the way you can interact with the airline dispatch, crew and passengers. I find the score system very realistic, and challenging (you can customize that too). Another nice feature is that you can request weather, runway and gate information from dispatch, you even get weather warnings filed by other pilots. It keeps me busy and entertained for the whole flight. Flying became a much more rewarding experience. Thanks guys!
