A Virtual Co-Pilot Would Be Nice

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a virtual co-pilot for FS2004. I always fly my flights VFR as I avoid the controller. I would like to be connected to a controller like in real life, but I always walk away from my computer for extended periods of time, and when I return my IFR is cancelled. I think it'd be nice if there was a program where you can leave, and the plane would make turns when you get to waypoints, descend/ascend if necessary, switch frequencies, spot traffic in the vicinity, etc. That'd be great! That way, towards the end of the flight, I could land it with the vectors provided to me by the ATC, which I enjoy! What do you think??

Yeah that would be a really good idea, I'm fed up of requesting new IFR destinations!! lol. The only virtual co-pilot i've seen are those cheep graphics then when you look right in the flight deck theres a dressed up man sitting dead up right in the co-pilots seat lol.

Forget the co-pilot - can we have a virtual stewardess to bring drinks/food etc to us? We wouldn't need to leave the flight deck then!

Get some of those Hooters Air F/As - although I think I'd end up spending more and more time at my computer!!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Notice how the Pilot is always blonde and the FO is a brunette, wow, what if the someone flying on the computer isn't blonde?
I do agree about the thing though. I sit infront of my computer for hours upon hours when long haul. Luckily form me I have a TV, Radio and other entertainment in my room.

I just have a TV and it is very boring on the longer flights, My PS2 is upstairs in my room as is my DVD player and radio.

The past few long flights I have done I have just sat here and read my 2 books from the Library (The Rama Series - Read 1,2,3 but 4 isn't in the library so it's on order). But now that is over I think I may just crack up.

Why is whenever you are flying over a vast ocean that ATC decide to hand you over when you are taking a leak !?!?!

It's Murphy's law my friend. Always happens, they hand you over and cancel your IFR in the space of 3 minute when you have a leak or get something to eat. You are not alone on that one.

Ive been waiting for a virtual pilot add on just something that will fly the plane while im in the bath or watching tv then i can enjoy the views without having to be at the controls.Of course you can use the FMC but that wont change the radios or take off or land by itself without occasional input


your pilots today on this 747 flight are captain oliver hardy and assisting will be FO stan laurel.Have a safe flight
