How Do You See In Virtual Cockpit View.

Thu May 23, 2002 8:49 am

I just have one question. i finally learned how to zoom out in the virtual cockpit view. The question is how do you see the altitude and speed insturments. How could you fly like that. if i knew how to that i would fly like that all the time. also i justed learned how to do a push back. That is amazing i just cant turn. i did press the 1 and 2 keys but that did not work.

To see the instruments in VC view press Shift -, the panel will come up.

To turn when pushing back you have to press 1 or 2 immediately after having pressed CTRL+E.

Do you really think it's better than the regular cockpit view? Can someone tell me what to use to best align with the center line of the runway when landing. No matter how much I try I can never be accurate, because I don't know what to use to give me an accurate alignment.

I just use visual allignment, no instruments. I've don'e only like 6 Instrument landings before, but I'm pretty good at it. When it's under like 3 miles visibility and I am on a VFR flight plan I usually use my GPS to vector myself into the ILS path, and then once the runway becomes even slightly visible I go by visual only.

By the way- Have any of you tried a visual approach into Anchorage Intl at night? It's HARD! I did it in a Beech 350 yesterday, I kept having to look out all the windows to make sure I had enough altitude. At one point I was about 50 yards from the runway threshold and made it just under tree level, I didn't realize how low I had been until I looked out the left window on the instant replay and saw the trees HIGHER than my wing. Other than that I made a pretty beautiful landing if I do say so myself though.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I just put the ILS freq into Nav 1 and engauge the autopilot and press the app button until she lines up and disenguage and fly in! works for me

It is just a matter of moving the viewpoint around with the coolie hat on it.
