WEATHER RADAR
The weather radar included with 737 Pilot in
Command is based on the real Collins WXR2100.
The most important is to locate hazardous
weather areas, and avoid them. This system is
able to show the pilot where dense precipitation is
located and turbulence is expected.
In an aviation based weather radar, only water
TOGA SWITCH (Take Off Go Around) and wet hail produces reflections. Only the clouds
located at the aircraft level can be displayed.

Colors code :
Green => Light precipitations
Yellow => Moderate precipitations
PEDESTAL - LATEST FEATURES Red => Severe precipitations

The INTENSITY OF TURBULENCE within clouds


can also be displayed. The turbulence is
calculated out of the velocity changes for the
reflections. This turbulence can only be measured
within clouds that generate normal reflections.
So only precipitation based turbulence can be dis-
played, gusty winds and other air turbulence
cannot.

Colors code :
dark magenta => Moderate turbulences
intense magenta => Severe turbulences

The turbulence image is an overlay to the normal


weather radar image so if no turbulence is
measured, the normal RGB Weather Radar image
is drawn. The turbulence detection is limited to a
Range of 40NM.

A special high sensitivity mode makes it possible


to detect WINDSHEAR out of water particles.
Windshear is always present at low altitudes just
above ground. Additional due to the high sensitivi-

Boeing 757/767 Simulator & Checkride


Simmers seldom own and fly just one airplane, but have
a whole stable of fabulous airplanes. In order to enhan-
ce your flight simming experience, I recommend that
you pick up Captain Mike Ray’s 757/767 Simulator
Check-ride Survival Guide. He has written well over
300 pages of everything you need to pass a check-
ride at any airline in the world.
The more detail the dedicated sim pilot is, the more
they should get all the manuals in this series. While
they are not written specifically for simming, the
level of realism that they project lends itself to the
phenomenal realism in the sim programs of today. Because
you bought this particular add-on sim program places you in an elite group
of individuals.

Boeing 747 Simulator & Checkride


Captain Mike Ray has flown the 747-400 all over the
world. He has placed some of his wealth of information
in a volume that takes the reader behind the scenes to
reveal just how the airline pilots “do it.” His book has
been used by thousands of airline pilot from all over
the world to pass their checkrides. And if you beco-
me familiar with the information inside this entertai-
ning 300 plus page manual, you will be able to pass
the check-ride too.
It covers all the necessary areas to make you a
real 747-400 “pro.” Emergencies, SOPs, profiles,
set-up and “cold dark” airplane material. It is all in
there. Even if you don’t take that check-ride, you will find the
witty and sometimes humorous treatment for a really complicated and boring
subject ... well, entertaining.
This is a real MUST HAVE for those flying the “glass jumbo.”
