Gear Retracting Configured for Landing Static Animations - Port Side Static Animations - Starboard Side Freighter Main Deck Loader Main Deck Load Manager Control Panel The lighting and lighting effects on the '1011 Captain' are a good, realistic representation of the real world aircraft. Flight Report I had the opportunity to fly the L1011 on numerous flights since it was released. Heading hold if bank is 3° or less. All I can say is, they definitely do not disappoint with the '1011 Captain' and the '1011-F' Freighter Expansion Model. Thank you Tanya for taking the time to answer these questions.
We are an international team based in Ukraine, Russia and Canada. This may seem like a trivial matter, but being able to fully control your cockpit lighting adds significantly to the realism of an aircraft. Will return to 35° if engagement bank angle is greater than 35°. While I thought that the manuals could have been more detailed and performance data should have been added, it is the perfect introduction to the L1011 for newcomers. Documentation The '1011 Captain' has a flight manual, provided in three parts, available in Adobe Acrobat format. Using the first two digits of your altitude to descent 22 , you can multiply this number by a 3 degree glide path which gives you the distance at which you need to start your descent from your first altitude restriction.
Apart from the systems that were previously mentioned, there is much more to the L1011 worth mentioning. Admittedly though, there is a Captain Sim channel on YouTube which has an engine start guide video for the '1011 Captain'. But until this happens, I would encourage you readers to source this information online and help with your flight planning. After successfully flying the arrival, the landing is by far the most challenging aspect of flying this aircraft. The aircraft is rather complex and developing all of the systems in an aircraft like this is challenging. Anyone who wants to fly it properly will have to study the aircraft. Overall, the aircraft model displays a very accurate rendition of the flight characteristics and performance of the real world aircraft.
Flight Performance It is easy to overlook the fact that the L-1011 'TriStar' is a lot of aircraft and it will catch the unsuspecting flight simmer unawares very quickly. As soon as you settle into the cockpit of the '1011 Captain' you get the immediate sense this is an aircraft you have to fly and manage. This being the case, I tested the autopilot extensively at all phases of flight. General Characteristics and Performance Specifications The general characteristics and performance specifications for the Lockheed L-1011-1 'TriStar' are provided in the table. There is also a page that displays the waypoint names and the distance between each waypoint and your present position. One of the fun aspects of flying older aircraft such as the L1011 is the manual management of the Hydraulic and Fuel systems. The route was particularly chosen to provide a basis upon which to test the range characteristics of the '1011 Captain'.
Flight controls are also custom developed. You will also receive an email providing you with your order number for this expansion model and this is required during installation and any re-installation. Typically, Tanks 1 and 3 are loaded with more fuel than Tank 2 and 2A and this is important to the overall weight and balance of the aircraft. With a quick cockpit familiarisation, set the flaps to 'Flaps 18', advance the throttles, and you will soon be airborne. These are modelled to the same high detail evident in other aspects of the product and all appear to be modelled faithfully. In general, the manuals cover only the basic description of each system and how they function.
Is the L1011 for you? Each control surface is controlled separately - even each spoiler and aileron there are 4 ailerons in L1011. Given the fact that so many old fashion gauges have been modeled and all seem to work, I think it shows promise that classic aircrafts can be produced in significant detail without any severe performance penalties. The Lockheed L-1011 'TriStar' has very distinctive lines. . This system is nothing short of amazing and it makes flying the L1011 both a challenge and a thrilling experience! The turbulence mode is disengaged by pressing the switch a second time or by disengaging autopilot. Whilst the lack of procedural checklists is disappointing, the '1011 Captain' and '1011-F' Freighter Expansion Model display an excellent balance of quality and detail at an exceptional price.
Model Features The Lockheed L-1011 'TriStar' is a classic commercial airliner with a traditional analogue 'steam powered' avionics suite. As far are features are concerned, here is a list of what the L1011 has to offer which was taken from the Captain Sim website. Finally, is there anything else you would like to share with potential customers about Captain Sim or the L1011? Each of these are available for separate download. The shortened, long range L-1011-500 first flew in 1978 and entered service in 1979. Maximum bank angle is 28° at 200 knots, decreasing to 15° at 450 knots. In fact, I can honestly say that the L1011 is perhaps one of the best add-ons ever done by Captain Sim. Panel Lighting Cockpit Lighting The sounds on the '1011 Captain' are reasonably realistic of the real world aircraft, though it was only really possible to review the engine sounds in videos of the real world L-1011 'TriStar'.
All these systems are extremely close to reality e. The aircraft's design features also included a lower deck galley and lounge facilities. Some of this data varies between sources and also may be an approximation due to variances in data and the specific aircraft modelled by Captain Sim. Overall, simply, this just does not 'cut it'.
