X-Plane 9 Auto Pilot

Thu Dec 31, 2009 6:36 am

I have X-Plane 9 for an Apple computer, and I was wondering if anyone knows how to work the auto pilot for the British Airways 777, Speed Bird India India Tango. I normally fly KLAX-KEDW.

Here are some links. If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. There are several x-plane users on here. Another great site is x-plane.org, where the forums are very, very helpful.

Hope that helps.

Thank you. I will look at those. X-Plane 9 is the best.

I belive it is the "Flight Manager" switch, next to the virtual horizon, if my memory serves right.
The 747 will always be the TRUE queen of the skies!

I have to admit X-Plane is kind of a let down for me. I'm used to FSX and i heard X-Plane was better but the menus and everything are just such a pain to use, is it too much to ask for a back button?

Quoting DL767captain (Reply 4):

All X-plane menus I've ever come across are single-screen. You shouldn't NEED a back button for anything you do...which menu bothers you?

I've always found X-plane's menus to be blindingly simple and easy to use. They allow for so much customization!

As for hearing that x-plane is better, it's a matter of opinion and what you look for in a flight simulator. If you want realistic graphics, better ATC, artificial traffic, and an interactive FMS, then FSX is the way to go because those are easier to achieve. However, if you want far more advanced physics, better customization (making your own aircraft, making your own airports and landscapes, etc), then X-plane is the product for you. Keep in mind that, with X-plane, you can still obtain very good ATC (through XSquawkBox), good artificial traffic (though you do have to make it yourself) and great scenery and graphics (as long as your machine is VERY, VERY powerful). If you have time (and some money) to invest in a flight simulator, x-plane will make you very happy. If you're looking to buy a game, look no further than FSX.
