FSFlyingSchool PRO 2020 for Prepar3D v5

September 23, 2020

FSFlyingSchool is an add-on team of artificially intelligent instructors for Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D v5. It provides talking instructors to pilots on any flight, in any powered airplane, anywhere in the world. From the moment the flight starts, to the time the pilot walks away, the instructor is monitoring the pilot’s actions and will comment on and advise in hundreds of different areas, from airmanship to taxiing – navigation to weather considerations, and a great deal more.

Pilots have been flying with FSFlyingSchool for 14 years, during which time it has won 5 Classic Product Awards from PC Pilot Magazine.

Over 70 areas of airmanship are monitored during flight and full logs are maintained which can be reviewed later and indeed analyzed by several powerful tools built into FSFlyingSchool.

Pilots can talk back too. The voice command pack allows the pilot to ask for lots of useful information and to keep the instructor informed of the pilot’s intentions – this in turn leads to a deeply immersive simulation.

Optionally, pilots can position the aircraft for approaches to any land runway in the world within seconds by using the ‘On Approach’ function of FSFlyingSchool with a few mouse clicks. These approaches include final, intersecting final, downwind, base and entering the pattern.

In addition, 15 specific popular aircraft are covered in a greater level of detail. The instructor knows their checklists and details such as power settings, fuel management, v-speeds, carburetor heat, cowl flaps, primer, fuel pumps, propeller levers and much more.

Pilots can try all this out with the free demo which has no time limit and comes with a full set of manuals.

Prepar3D Used to Shape Future STEM Leaders

July 30, 2020

Each year, Lockheed Martin hires thousands of interns to work at sites around the US. During their time here, the interns gain valuable work experience and partner closely with their managers and colleagues to complete challenging tasks that help solve real world problems.

This summer, Lockheed Martin welcomed 2,400 summer interns, more than half of whom are working virtually. In addition to gaining real-world experience on projects, interns participate in a design competition project which is designed to challenge engineering skills and bring fellowship and fun to the virtual internship experience.

The virtual interns at Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, used Prepar3D v5 for their 2020 Intern Design Competition.  Learn more at Shaping Tomorrow’s STEM Leaders.

BlackBox Simulation Showcase

July 27, 2020

Iconic Aircraft Ready for Prepar3D v5

BlackBox Simulation may be considered a newer company, however with thier many years of previous experience, there’s not much they don’t know about flight simulation. The founders began creating add-ons for flight simulators in the early days of Microsoft Flight Simulator 5. Years later they decided to start BlackBox Simulation with an aim to carry their passion for flight simulation to higher levels than ever before by bringing new innovative ideas to the flight sim world with every product they introduce.

As of today, BlackBox Simulation has upgraded multiple aircraft to take advantage of the features in Prepar3D v5 including full PBR texturing. Aircraft include the Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander, the Scottish Aviation Bulldog and Cessna L-19 Bird Dog. More aircraft are coming soon for Prepar3D v5, including their Airbus variants. Check out BlackBox Simulation store for more details.
