Features of FSFlyingSchool for X-Plane 9 - Cessna 172 Edition

  • Works with X-Plane 9
  • Team of 3 talking Flight Instructors
  • Scoring system rates all phases of flight: taxi, take off, cruise, approach, landing & more
  • Fly anywhere in the world with an instructor
  • Easy to use! Land anywhere you like and your instructors will know which runway you have chosen. Just get lined up with a runway ahead of you when you descend in landing mode. The instructor will look ahead, figure which runway you are heading for and announce where you are going to land. Easy!
  • Instructor knows which runway you are taking off from. Instructor will comment and give advice on the runway you have selected.
  • Instructor knows which runway you are landing at. Even without ILS, and will give advice on how to land.
  • No need to land on a fixed point on the runway. Any reasonable landing on a runway will get a reasonable score.
  • Spoken Teaching Tips. Option so that FSFlyingSchool will speak a series of helpful tips when you fly. Tips are always in the same voice and are clearly different from a normal 'instructor' voice. These tips are like training wheels on a bicycle and are telling you how to use FSFlyingSchool and X-Plane itself. Once you have got the basics of these operations down, you may wish to turn these basic tips off.
  • Friendly scoring system. Rewards all flights which were basically safe - higher scores require plenty of skill. If you can walk away from your landing - you will get a score. If you crash - you will not!
  • Numerical data added to log book. Shows details of flight performance, such as landing speed, distance from threshold, approach accuracy and more.

Customer Reviews
JUSTSIM - HAMBURG AIRPORT V2 - FOR P3D V4.4+
Bernd
For my Job I flew a lot from EDDH and because of that the Airport felt like home for me. This is the reason why i choose EDDH as my Homebase in P3D. Of course now i´am very happy that the Airport is now updated and i can feel very used to it. The V2 looks very good especially the ground textures are crisp and have a reality look, except the runway-touchdow-
n-zone, which has an unrealistic black dot. This can be done much better. Yes, other developers would offer an update like this free of charge but i´am also happy to support the developer with this little upgrade fee. At least it´s a must have if you own the former version anyway. And only because of those small issues i have give 4 stars.
SIERRASIM SIMULATION - KSWF NEW YORK STEWART INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D
juan
Pretty darn accurate scenario and surrounds. Flying here for so many years in real life can't be more than happy that Sierrasim made it. Extremely well wrote it with a really minimum impact on FPS.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - CHICAGO AIRPORTS XP X-PLANE 11
Ryan
Amazingly detailed and it dosen’t take a huge toll on your frames. One of the best Chicago sceneries out there.
PAULO RICARDO - RIO DE JANEIRO - SANTOS DUMONT SBRJ 2020 FSX P3D
Kelvin
Simply the most detailed rendition of an scenery I have ever seen. This is simply the best of the best. What’s more it runs so well.
PAULO RICARDO - FORTALEZA 2014 P3D4
Andrey
Paulo Ricardo is one of the best Brazilian scenary desingers. I live in Fortaleza and I am impressed by the amount of details of this work, mainly in relation to public buildings and tourist spots. In addition, the city's surroundings are very well represented. It is a scenario worthy of my city.
VIRTAVIA - F-104 STARFIGHTER FSX STEAM EDITION DLC
David
Seems like there should be a few more liveries for this? What you do get hear is nice enough, but just not very many. Also there is a issue with the texture files causing blacked out cockpits and broken shadowing around the exterior. Just ugly as can be. The issues required me to contact Virtavia Who quickly gave me a very easy fix and totally resolved the issue. Such good customer service.
LIONHEART - ROBIN DR400/180 FSX P3D
David
The Robin is a unique plane and for some reason difficult to locate a solid sim representation. I chose this one in a whim and so far feel pretty good about it. It’s a really nice plane for touring under 10,000 feet. Has a fair amount of power for short flights with lesser fuel and perform well even loaded up. There’s a nice selection of liveries included. The interior looks like any Robin I’ve ever seen and is detailed nicely. It sounds right and flies right. Lionheart always offers very pretty planes and this is slightly less eye popping, but the Robin isn’t really eye popping anyway. It’s a bird that may need some acquired taste. For the money it’s a solid purchase and I’m not finding any problems with it after my first 4 hours of flying.
FLYSIMWARE - SUPER HUEY X FSX P3D
David
I really want to rate this higher but there’s too many significant bugs holding it back. First the models are fantastic and fly realistically. Easy to hover and control. Nicely detailed in and out. Few actual functioning switches, knobs and dials. Just the essentials work mostly. The most glaring drawback is that FSX SE version does not have any audio! Yes I mean a totally silent engine. However the developer web sight has a solution that I found to be really quite simple. Basically you just alias sound from another aircraft, I used the Augusta 101 helicopter. It’s not quite the right sound at all, but It’ll do for now. Next issue is that the variant with the rescue basket has a problem. The basket can be loaded and dumped of its human cargo but it only move half way out from the chopper and does not raise or lower at all. The fire tank equipped model doesn’t show the dumping of water effects. The copilot altimeter doesn’t work. I can forgive the little things but the nonfunctional rescue basket is a big disappointment. So really this is a mediocre Huey and I only give it 3 stars because I am a big fan of this chopper and the modeling is better than good. If you’re a fan of the Huey like me and can forgive those issues then consider buying but ONLY on sale. No way it’s worth full price as is.
VIRTAVIA - C-17A GLOBEMASTER III FSX STEAM EDITION DLC
David
Yes! Totally worth adding. Basically .50 cents per livery and they look very good.
VIRTAVIA - C-17A GLOBEMASTER III FSX STEAM EDITION
David
Virtavia makes pretty cheap but often fun and serviceable add on planes, so you should temper your expectations. This C17 is actually better than most of their offerings. It’s not a pro simulation by any means, but it is a good looking representation of this iconic beast. I see the McChord version ( available by buying the C17 DLC) fly overhead frequently, some times appearing to do circuits. That said the details are pretty spot on. The roaring engines when heard from the outside is a little understated here though, but still a quality sound. All doors open by the ramp requires you map the wing fold action to a key, it’s easy to do but not obvious to first few glances. If you don’t map the wing fold to a key then the ramp will only open half way, or such as it would when dumping cargo or soldiers. Once mapped (only works on the ground) pushing that assigned key will further extend the ramp to fully deployed and touching the ground. Just remember use regular door open ( Shift+E+2) first. For the money you can’t go wrong and buying the add on DLC liveries will be something worth getting as well. Another note, Virtavia has excellent and speedy customer service. Just be polite and provide brief specific details like you would anywhere and they will get back to you lickity split. They have helped me solve every issue I’ve ever had with very simple and clear instructions. Can’t say the same for certain other developers who put their ego ahead of service and facts.
