BOEING 737 PANEL, VERSION x06, FOR USE ONLY WITH MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR X (FSX) ® and WINDOWS 7 ®

 

Foreword

 

This panel is based on those made for 747. Consequently this is not as accurate as it should be. But in this one, a lot of sophisticated functions such as the FMC, PUSHBACK, SOUNDS complete TCAS FUNCTION, the COPILOT view and a Look down “Complete view” are included for a very cheap price.

First this panel is adapted to either the 737-800 or the 737-700. Just click on a switch on the FMC to change parameters.

You need at least 4 Go RAM memory to use this panel with Windows 7 ® and FSX ®. You can read details at Technical Information Page.

 

 

NEW LANDING WINDOW

A new “head up” landing window very useful when approaching and landing.

 

LARGE WINDOWS PFD, MFD and MCP

Just click on each window to enlarge/reduce it.

 

MULTISCREEN

Due to the preceding, windows are separate so the panels can be used with a multiscreen environment.

 

MOVING YOKE

The yoke is now turning right/left and is moving back and forth to simulate the pull up/push down.

 

TAXI SPEED

You can control a specified speed when taxiing in an airport. Select MENU then TAXI page. The usual taxi speed when on ground is up to 25 knots.

 

LAST BUT NOT LEST: THE COMPLETE TCAS WITH SOUNDS.

The traffic is now displayed in the MFD according to the zoom of the map and parameters in the TCAS Page in the FMC.

Sounds are now played according to TA or RA situations: for exemple "Climb, Climb!" or "Encrease Climb" etc....

 

Plus a lot of enhancements.

 

REMARK: some functions presented here may not exist in the FS2004 ® version of the panel.

1 - PERFORMANCES ENHANCEMENT          Summary

 

 

The performances in this new x06 version have been largely increased.

 

Of course a percentage of the upgrade is difficult to define, depending on so many parameters, the first one being your own computer hardware and software.

 

Anyway, with all the slides set at “defaults” (except the definition at 1024x768 and full screen), you normally should get a frame rate about 50 to 100 % higher than with the preceding version.

 

 

2 - AUDIO ENHANCEMENT                             Summary

 

All the noisy switches have sounds attached to them and you will hear the clicks, clacs, crunches whenever you move them. The devices with sounds attached also are sounded, such as for example the APU. The COPILOT reports the manoeuvering of devices, for example FLAPS, GEAR, etc... and tells CHECKLISTS. The PUSHBACK function has also sounds of the conversation between co-pilot and ground service.

Absolutely NO extra other addon is necessary to play sounds.

Most of the switches are moving, even those which are not yet operational in FSX. The brightness of all the windows is adjustable.The FMC contains all the functions and a fully AUTOMATIC AUTOLAND is included in the autopilot.

4 - The FLIGHT MANAGEMENT COMPUTER      Summary

 

It contains many powerful features. It will:

a) Follow a loaded flightplan, created by FSX (or by other software and imported into FSX), both horizontally and vertically and in accordance with defined speeds;

b) Flightplan change while flying;

c) Manage the TAKE-OFF thrusts and the climb thrust TOGA, MAX THRUST, CRUISE and AUTOMATIC according to the economic index and weather parameters;

d) Calculate optimum V1, VR, V2 and cruise speed according to the cruise altitude;

e) Control the VNAV (Vertical Navigation) functions when climbing, cruising and descending, taking into account economic speeds and altitudes, user-modified speeds and altitudes and TRANSIT and RESTRICTED speeds and altitudes;

f) Manage the function cruise “economic climb” when the aircraft loses weight due to fuel having been burned, in accordance with either the ICAO standard or a user-defined value;

g) Manage the HOLD function at an actual position or programmed altitude or at a waypoint with adjusted time or distance and manage the FIX function,

h) Display all necessary information relating to:

ATC - flight number, aircraft ident, etc...,

VNAV - speeds and altitudes,

LEGS - giving for each the waypoint, heading, distance and altitude,

PROGRESS – the actual position, the previous and next waypoints and the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) at the destination airport,

APPROACH SPEED - useful information on the flap settings and corresponding speed limits required during an approach,

NAV - radios, active and standby, OBS and radials,

COMM - radios, active and standby, transponder and ADF,

POSITION - the current position of the aircraft at the departure airport and (for fun) the three positions of the three IRSs (Inertial Reference Systems);

i) Allow direct data entry of all data into all function pages, retrieve VOR ILS COMM radio codes;

j) Follow the APPRAOCH and TRANSITION retrieved as described above,

k) Allow the brightness of the display to be adjusted for night flights, on both the FMC and the renewed PFD (Primary Flight Display) and EICAS Upper & Lower;

l) Allow the aircraft to be flown manually (providing the ROUTE has not been activated),

m) Retrieve an ALTERNATE AIRPORT depending on runway length and airport distance,

n) Fully automatic autoland , from the ILS capture to the full stop on the runway.

However it will NOT create and/or directly modify flight plans. (However Flight Simulator itself and other good quality software packages available on the Net do it so well.). However the FS flightplan can be changed during flight using FS procedure.)

TCAS IN THIS NEW PANEL VERSION

TCAS : the TCAS is complete and simulates the actual TCAS . There are several TCAS systems, such as Honeywell or Garmin or some others, and each of them has his own characteristics depending on the current standards and aircraft type. The distances and speeds are different for a low aircraft such as the CESSNA 172 and a big jet such as the BOEING 747 .

We do not pretend to realize a complete TCAS SYSTEM , but we have tried to simulate the main functions and applied standards for big jets according to TCAS 620 . The goal is also to save an acceptable frame rate .

OPERATION:

For easier understanding, in the following, your aircraft is named “your aircraft” and other aircraft which is flying dangerously in front of you is named “intruder”.

The TCAS is operational when “ In air aircraft ” is selected in the FMC TCAS page 3 (See FMC TCAS PAGES hereafter) and the TCAS is switched ON .

The MFD displays the 5 first aircraft which have the following characteristics in an area of 43 miles around the aircraft. This distance may be modified in the FMC but is limited to 50 by FSX .

1 – At a distance less than 21 nmiles,

2 – At an altitude less than 9900 feet beneath or above,

3 – In front of the aircraft from 45° from the left to 45° to the right.

A complete list of all the aircraft flying around your aircraft is given in the FMC page 2.

At 450 knots , the distance of 21 miles represents a time of 168 seconds (2 mn 48 s) and a distance of 10 miles represents a time of 80 seconds (1 mn 20 s).

2 situations may happen:

1 – TRAFFIC ADVISORY (TA) : an aircraft is in the area from 10 to 21 miles and at an altitude from 2500 to 9900 feet beneath or above. A yellow message “ Traffic ” is displayed in the MFD . The aircraft is marked with a yellow circle , a sound “Traffic” is played ounce:

 

Picture 1

2 – RESOLUTION ADVISORY (RA) : this means you MUST ABSOLUTELY react. An aircraft is at a distance less than 10 miles and at an altitude less than 2500 feet beneath or above, in front of your aircraft in an angle of -90° left to 90° right. A red message: “Traffic! Traffic!” is displayed in the MFD . The intruder is marked with a full red square .

When the intruder is in an angle from 45° left to 45° right and flying against your aircraft heading = your heading +180° +/- 20° (see Picture 2) a sound is played every 5 seconds “ Descend! Descend !” or “ Climb! Climb !” depending on the altitude of the aircraft. See Picture 2 and 3.

When the intruder is at a distance less than 5 nm, a sound is played “ Increase Descend ” or “ Increase Climb ”. When intruder is out of the danger area, behind your aircraft for example, a sound is played “ Clear of conflict ”.

Picture 2

REMARKS:

• Using the TCAS when taking OFF or landing may be boring due to the number of aircraft around you. Reduce the number of aircraft to 1 and if necessary the distance and altitude in the FMC TCAS Page 3 .

• The TCAS is also simulated by FSX: the aircraft in front of you will climb or descend according to the same rule. If you are at an altitude under the aircraft in front of you the TCAS will order “Descend” and the aircraft in front of you will climb up, and reverse. See Picture 4.

• In case of a RA SITUATION: the rule says YOU MUST IMPERATIVELY EXECUTE what the TCAS orders and NOT what the ATC says.

• In these 2 cases the message displays the aircraft type, distance and speed.

• The TCAS is displayed only in the MFD half window to save frame rate.

• At the end of a RA SIMULATION there is a delay of a few seconds between the end of RA situation and the call “Clear of conflict”.

• In some aircraft.cfg the information is not correct or absent. Either the airline is not present or the flight number or the ident is not correct. This may be confusing when checking the aircraft in the FMC and the MFD map. This does not depend on the JSGPanels panel.
