Self-testing maneuvers speed/heading/altitude on FSX ?

Post by epicadventures » Tue Nov 27, 2012 2:24 pm

Let's say I'm flying at a particular speed/heading/altitude. I want the system to propose a new speed/heading/altitude, and then I want the system to make a sound or flash a message when I achieve the new speed/heading/altitude correctly.

Does anyone know of a feature in FSX, or an addon, or a hack to do this?


** Reason for wanting this is that I'm practicing for the PPL, and in the PTS checkride it's a typical maneuver; wherein the examiner proposes a new speed/heading/altitude, and then sees how well (smoothly/quickly) you are able to get there. I know it's not the same thing, but I want to practice on my FSX Cessna 172 before doing it on a real aircraft.

Hi, good question, this not something that I have ever needed to do, that's not to say it can't be done, this is something outside my knowledge of FSX, but i'm sure if you sit tight, someone should jump on this subject for you.

I did't wan't to raise you hopes in replying without an answer, this was really meant to satisfy you that it has been noted and not fallen into the depths of the unkown :wink:

This would actually be set up as a "Mission" type flight, with coding inside of it. Both mentioned, is beyond me at this time.

However, I am sure there is something close to it available somewhere. And no, I have no idea as to where to look, sorry.
