Adds to the ambience and realism of the cockpit! I slow the with a nudge from the spoilers. The question is, how well does Flight Deck Companion stand up with regards to contemporary flight simulation?

As far as I can tell, it does not reduce frame rates in any way. FDC Live Cockpit Intel Core 2 CPU 2. I would have liked to have occkpit this part of FDC get modernized, with click-and-drag functionality for the call-outs, so that you can just use the mouse to point to the calls and set them into place. If you miss those settings in FDC, the VCP will dutifully make calls to arm the spoilers and set the autobrakes even though the controls don't exist in your cockpit.
He has released patches to get us to FDC 3. Explore detailed airports all over the world and be inspired by the incomparable views. Still, the program is fully configurable to fit the needs of each and every aircraft and pilot.

Then, I load up FSX. I sometimes get an "Autobrakes set to RTO" call even though the aircraft I am flying has no autobrake switch. So, because I was to test out the Live Cockpit!
For ease of reference, I will call the product FDC. My descent rate seems a little steep, so I adjust it. If you should run into serious problems with FDC, the Black Box report can help you figure out exactly where the problem lies.

There are literally hundreds of features to sort through. I have the downloaded version, so this is the manual I will review.
There are some Tutorial flights to try out. Soon, the flight attendant announces that refreshments will be served, and the rest of the climb is easy. Both programs will do a good job of helping a sim pilot run through checklists and automate some flight chores. By comparison, CD-quality audio is recorded at 44, Hz, while a household telephone normally samples audio at around 8, Hz. FDC does support this jetliner and some others, but right now commenting on them is beyond the scope of my review. The FDC flight log will keep track of your flying time and log all of the major events, while the Black Box recorder is more for use in diagnosing problems with FDC itself.
I slow the with a nudge from the spoilers. From version to revision, there have been a number of issues that have come up, but the developer has always been keen to solve them in a timely manner.
If you want to get to the part where I say what I think about today's FDC, you can fsc jump ahead to the "Installation" section of my review; otherwise, I would be happy if you joined me in recalling some earlier achievements in third-party software for Flight Simulator.
Once you have your changes all finalized, then FDC really shines. A basic flight planner now keeps track of your departure and destinations, and can show you critical information for the various legs livd your journey, including runway information and navigation frequencies for the airport at the end of your trip. Then, as we capture the localizer and match the glide path, the VCP is cocjpit the flaps. Checklists can be highly automated or fully manual, or somewhere in between. True flight sim die-hards can record their own voice into FDC and make their own custom voice set, but again, this is beyond the vockpit of my review.
The right hardware for your software! The co-pilot exists only in audio, however. The user would plug in the intended flight route, and then ProFlight would laboriously churn out a custom-made Adventure, which took around an hour to calculate.
In the meantime, I am negotiating with ATC to find our proper radio frequencies, and I make sure that we are on course, climbing properly, occkpit at our speed limit, given the altitude restrictions. From steering wheels and gear levers, to rudder pedals and yokes, to Airbus and Boeing instruments, you can create your individual cockpit.
