The R44 – probably the most popular General Aviation helicopters on the planet – has been modelled in very high detail, according to extensive research around the actual real-world aircraft.
This package incorporates the skid-outfitted R44 Raven II, and also the fixed utility AND emergency float outfitted R44 Clipper II.
The aircraft is supplied with some unique tools to customize and increase your rotary flying experience.
NEW! All of the aircraft within the Flying Club range have finally been fully up-to-date towards the latest Flight Simulator X SP2 and DX10 preview specifications. Existing ownsers could possibly get particulars of methods to update their aircraft from the Support section on this web site.
2 standard livery styles, in addition to a fantastic choice of real-world liveries.
Unique Nation Selection tool allows someone flies the aircraft in United kingdom, American, German and French, Swiss and Nederlander registrations – giving as many as 221 versions!
Just click to exhibit or hide your travellers within the Virtual Cockpit.
Using the engine off and also the ‘park’ icon clicked, the pilot and passenger figures are removed, the manoeuvring wheels have established yourself around the skids, the primary rotor tie-lower is guaranteed towards the rotor and also the rotor rises and lower lightly within the breeze.
Custom seem set – inside and outside – developed in the real aircraft.
Animated pilot figure – he moves because the controls move, and travellers move their heads to go searching.
Operating emergency floats – lift removed from a tough surface and fly combined with the floats packed, and you may then operate the floats that come out already inflated to find water surface.
Unique in-sim listing that requires only one click to show overturn side. The listing shows the standard procedures checklists and operational restrictions.
The custom flight model reflects the performance from the real aircraft as carefully as you possibly can in FSX and it is further enhanced automatically for customers who’ve FSX Service Pack 2 or even the Microsoft ‘Acceleration’ add-on pack installed. Customers from the FS2004 version could make the selection from a custom ‘Normal’ flight model that behaves well under general flight conditions as well as an ‘Expert’ flight model that’s more realistic in a few more extreme flight areas.
High-quality aircraft textures along with a fully detailed interior provide you with that ‘real feel’.
Immersive virtual cockpit with mouse-clickable instruments, levers and knobs and operating cyclic collective with throttle and mixture controls.
Click to coverOrdisplay the collective, travellers and Gps navigation unit within the Virtual Cockpit for easy viewing of instruments and controls. The cyclic could be clicked to get rid of the passenger side from the control along with the port tail rotor pedals!
Realistic 2D instrument panel.
Full group of custom gauges and annunciator lights.
Authentic animations – primary and tail rotor rotation and pitch, swash plates, tail rotor pedals, cyclic control, collective and rotary throttle, all cabin doorways, port and starboard engine bay access doorways.
Small but important products happen to be modelled in great detail – door hinges, door air vents (they can open and shut!), Nav radio antennas, rotor heads, skid wheel attachment points, fuel caps, Nav lights, operating emergency landing lights, door handles and much more.
AeroPaint texture utility – create new liveries or edit the present ones (exterior paint program needed).
Operating lights – navigation, flashing strobe, landing and emergency landing.
Realistic cockpit procedures
- Unique – the aircraft has altimeters that vary from Milibars to Inches within the pressure setting window, based on which Worldwide configurations you’ve occur Flight Simulator. An easy click enlarges the altimeter.
- Individual Avionics could be switched Off or on
- Overhead rotor brake
- Smooth smooth gauge operation
- Engine ‘Starter motor engaged’ warning light
- Many other warning lights for example low rotor Revoltions per minute and Rotor brake
- Mouse-over tool shows text of instrument name and blood pressure measurements
- All avionics can be found in pop-up home windows
Highly realistic avionics happen to be individually produced for this aircraft, in line with the equipment built in the initial machine:
- Nav/Comm radio
- VOR indicator
Authentic aircraft systems provide a much more accurate flying experience, with full electrical system simulation.
FSX version additional features
- Specular and bump mapping in addition to FSX-style gauge night lighting! Outdoors you are able to really begin to see the individual rivets, and textures are optimised to provide an ultra-real feel and look
- Multiple additional sights benefiting from the brand new FSX view system
- The brand new FSX gauge lighting system
An extensive manual is incorporated in PDF format that fully describes the characteristics and operation from the aircraft, its avionics, sections and gauges. The manual also has a descriptive tutorial to help you fly as rapidly as you possibly can. Within the simulation is a listing for normal procedures which outlines the operational restrictions from the R44 within Flight Simulator.
