Do you have a yoke, throttle and rudder pedals to control your flight simulator? If not, we shed some light on WHY you should have them, and what great options are out there.
Is your simulator environment a little dry and boring? Fear not, we have a couple addon recommendations that will really blow the socks off your feet, and the wheel pants off your 172.
Because the APU is so similar to the main engines, this clip may confuse you first as an animation of the engine. However, you’ll see here how air flows through the APU, is compressed, and then turned into bleed air.
The 777 system High Lift Controls is more traditionally known as Secondary Flight Controls. This consists of slats, spoilers, and flaps. Obviously, logic of this system is of the utmost importance, as it assists the pilots in dynamically changing the flight envelope for takeoff, approach and other situations.
How is bleed air fed from the engine to the bleed air system? Well, it’s not exactly summarized in a sentence or two. That’s why we spend a lot of time showing you just how it works.
Yes, even the APU is a complex set of moving parts. It’s not simply just a turbine engine in the tail, but it has it’s own unique ways of cooling, generating power, etc.
Jets spend more of their flying time in environments unsuitable for human life. Yes, it’s in our own atmosphere. But you won’t last long in the Flight Levels without oxygen and a heavy set of winter gear.
When the 777 first entered service, it was a whole new type of aircraft; highly digital, modeled and tested in 3D, efficient in many respects. In this increasingly digitized environment, there would be a lot more computers managing aircraft operations.
