JSGPanels UNIVERSAL FMC PRESENTATION

 

FMC Version X06

For FSX ฉ

and Windows 7 ฉ

 

THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES A UNIVERSAL FMC DESIGNED FOR MOST OF THE FSX ฉ AIRCRAFT AND A SOUND PACKAGE AND PUSHBACK.

Description : Description : Description : HP02

 

Many users had requested the JSGPanels Boeing FMC can be installed in other aircraft, in one word, a "UNIVERSAL FMC".

HERE IT IS !!! It includes the SOUND PACKAGE with sounds of devices and copilot voice and some sophisticated functions such as PUSHBACK.

Some sound packages recorded by English or American flightsimmers are available free of charge in the file library of FLIGHTSIM and AVSIM.

 

EASIER INSTALLATION PROCESS

THIS NEW VERSION IS EASIER TO INSTALL THAN THE PRECEDING ONES.

All the sounds files are included in only one gauge and all necessary gauges are contained in the FSX gauges folder.

But a minimum knowledge of the FSX file system is recommended to install in several aircraft.

2 – 1 INSTALLATION/UNINSTALLATION

 

The FMC is installed in the AIRBUS A321 as an exemple.

Then install it in any other aircraft you like. You can install the FMC in as many aircraft a you want in your FSX ฉ. There is no limitation of the number of aircraft. To install in any other aircraft modify the panel.cfg as described in the documentation. See UNIVERSAL FMC SPECIFICATIONS.

 

To uninstall, just delete the 2 FMC gauges.

 

 

2 – 2 INSTALLATION IN ANY OTHER AIRCRAFT

 

To install in other panel add the necessary lines to the panel.cfg of your choice.

 

 

3. THE FLIGHT MANAGEMENT COMPUTER (FMC)          summary of the document

 

FMC Overview

 

At initialization, the FMC looks like this (depending on the aircraft type):

 

 

 

It contains many powerful features. It will:

 

 

a)      follow an FSX FLIGHTPLAN (or by other software and imported into FSX), including the selected APPROACH PHASE, both horizontally and vertically and in accordance with defined speeds, allowing it to be changed if required during the flight;

 

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

 

c)      calculate optimum V1, VR, V2 and cruise speed according to the cruise altitude; calculating speeds in both knots AND mach;

 

d)     control the LNAV (Longitudinal Navigation) and 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;

 

e)      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;

 

f)manage the complete HOLD function at an actual position, programmed altitude or at a predefined waypoint with adjustable leg time or distance, speed and altitude;

 

g)      manage the FIX function, for heading to a specified VOR;

 

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) and fuel at the destination airport,

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

NAV – this displays radios, both active and standby, OBS and radials. Searches and retrieves the NAV ILS & COMM codes by entering the ICAO name directly in the FMC.

COMM - radios, both 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, VORs ILSs and STARs retrieval by entering directly the ICAO code with mouse clicks on the FMC keyboard itself on the screen;

 

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 PFD (Primary Flight Display) MFD (Multi Functions display), RADIOs and EICAS Upper and 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)      The brightness of the FMC screen can be adjusted,

 

o)      Last but not least, manage the fully automatic autoland, from the ILS capture to the full stop on the runway.

 

 

However it will NOT:

 

Create directly flight plans. (However Flight Simulator itself and other good quality software packages available on the Net do it so well.)

 

 

FMC: The Control Display Unit (CDU)            summary of the document
 

 

FMC - CDU Summary

 

The CDU contains many pages, each of which relates to a specific FMC function. They are selected with the Mode Select keys. In addition, some keys such as INIT REF and VNAV themselves contain several sub-pages.

 

Pressing a key (mouse click on a FMC button) automatically displays a page containing data updated to reflect the current contents of the FMC, the location of the aircraft and the setting of the controls. Pages can also be selected by clicking on the PREV PAGE or NEXT PAGE buttons or can be chosen from a list by selecting the < INDEX prompt.

 

a)      INIT REF:

q  IDENT displays the aircraft and engine model, the nav data used and the nav data validity times,

q  POS INIT displays the IRS position initialization,

q  PERF INIT (Performance Initialization) displays the aircraft weights, cruise altitude and cost index,

q  THRUST LIMIT displays the reference thrust limits, reduced and derated thrust,

q  TAKE OFF REF displays the take-off VNAV profile and take-off reference speeds,

q  APPROACH REF displays the Approach reference speeds,

q  MENU displays simulator-specific functions;

b)      RTE displays the route origin and the destination airport;

c)      DEP ARR allows to search for an approach procedure for a given airport by entering the ICAO code of an airport, then follows the approach,

d)     Controls the ALTERNATE AIRPORT,

e)      NAV:

q  CLB VNAV displays the climb parameters,

q  CRZ VNAV displays the cruise parameters,

q  DES VNAV displays the descent parameters ;

f)       LEGS displays the enroute waypoints;

g)      Manages FIX and HOLD and displays the holding pattern parameters;

h)      PROGRESS displays flight progress and time/fuel estimations;

i)        MENU displays simulator-specific functions,

j)        NAV RADIO displays the navigation radios, allows searching a radio frequency by entering the ICAO code.

k)      COMM RADIOS displays the communication radios, allows searching a radio frequency by entering the ICAO code.

l)        MANAGES THE PUSHBACK function,

m)    Plays the CHECKLISTS,

n)      For heavy aircraft, manages the AUTOMATIC LANDING.

o)      Includes a funny PUSHBACK function.

 

For each page necessary information is directly entered in the FMC using mouse clicks on the FMC keyboard.
