|Co-Pilots Michelle and Mike Ready to Help You!|
|When you first use IYP, the system is preset to Extended Help mode, especially equipped for the new FREE users. Whenever you call for your First Officer (FO) (Michelle/Mike) to execute the Checklists, he/she will call for a checklist item like, “Parking Brakes On." If you do not respond in a timely manner the FO will ask again. If there's still no response from you the FO will automatically extend HELP.|
The amount of time that elapses before your FO automatically extends help, is nominally set to 10 seconds.
For some users, this can be considered a short delay. Therefore, you can change the Nag Delay by say, e.g....
"Make the nag delay 15 seconds"
"Make the nag delay 20 seconds"
"Make the nag delay 30 seconds"
"Make the nag delay 45 seconds"
"Make the nag delay 60 seconds"
|You can switch from Extended Help, to Normal Help by saying, "Extended Help OFF." In this mode, whenever you call for your First Officer (FO) (Michelle/Mike) to execute the Checklists, he/she will call for a checklist item like, “Landing Lights On." If you do not respond in a timely manner the FO will ask again. If there's still no response from you the FO will say, "Captain... Can you not hear me? If you need help, just say, 'Please help me.' " In other words, help is NOT automactically offered.|
|There is an enormous amount of built-in audio help in the IYP application. Whenever your First Officer (Co-Pilot) asks you to respond to a checklist item and you have forgotten how to deal with it, simply say, ”Please help me” or “I need help.”|
When your First Officer asks...
If you respond with, "Negative", or "No thanks", then you'll be flying on your own! However, your First Officer will still call out the V1, Rotate, V2 speeds during takeoff, operate the Seat Belt signs during the flight, call out the 1,000, 500, 400, 300, etc. on approaches, operate the GPWS and continue to provide other suggestions throughout the flights.
What Are The Window Names?
Did you know that you can ask Michelle for the window names by saying, "What are the window names?"
She will read them out for you. You need to know these names in order to say, for example, "Bring up the Radio Stack",
or "Get rid of the Throttle Quadrant", “Display the Overhead Panel", etc.
Another perfect segue to the next topic...
Window Names in Non-English Simulators!
"Bring up the Planche radio." Huh?
The two phrases "Bring up the [window name]" and "Get rid of the [window name]", or "Kill the [window name]" that are used to open and close windows will cause problems for those of you who are not running an English version of the Flight Simulator; except for GPS. Why? Because the It's Your Plane (IYP) system "reads" the PANEL.CFG file of the selected aircraft for the window names.
For example, in the English system, when flying a Cessna C172, the window names are:
Here's an example. In the PANEL.CFG file, change this:
Window00=Tableau de bord principal
Window03=Tableau de signalisation
Window05=Mini tableau de bord
Restart Cold and Dark
Use the phrase “Restart cold and dark” to cause the IYP system to reset the aircraft. Depending upon the particular aircraft, various switches and settings will be reset. In addition, the doors are automatically opened to welcome passengers and/or crew.
Quick Start Mode
"Good morning Captain Robert."
