Hello, I am Kyline or Athena on IG.
Now i am wondering how to be a realistic player on IF. as we all know flying virtually still needs realism.
Heres how i do when on the gate.
-Start the Main battery then the APU
-Enable the nav lights after the battery is switched on
-Open the pax doors and cargo doors (if i am flying the 772)
Then lets go to the pushback section, how i do is:
-Turn on the anti-collision beacon
-Request for pushback
-close the doors
-Turn on Engine no.2 (or both engines if spawned near the runway)
-Stop at the taxiway
Then taxiing time it is, how i do is:
-Request taxi permission
-Do the taxi sequence
-Test the flight controls
-Start the No.1 engine
-Line up behind the queue
-Hold short on the runway
-Turn off the APU
Well we got a clearance for line-up to the runway, how i do it:
-Acknowledge the instruction
-Turn on Strobe and Landing lights
-Line up the runway
-Turn on seatbelt and no smoking signs
-Acknowledge the takeoff clearance
-85% throttle, no trim
-Flaps 15 (or two on Airbus aircrafts)
-Lift off at 143knts
-Acknowledge the frequency change
-Turn on the A/P at 3400ft MSL
Climbing to cruise, how i do it:
-Climb at 2900fpm
-240knts before FL100
-320knts after reaching FL320
-Turn off landing lights, seatbelt and no smoking signs
-Contact the wandering ATC
Now we reached cruise altitude, how i do it.
-Contact an another wandering ATC
-Radar contact again.
-Cleared to change frequency
-Change the frequency to absolutely nothing nearby
-Admire the scenery
-Relax until i fall asleep
Oh we are already descending? how i do it.
-Decrease speed to M.78
-Slow down further to 250knts at FL150
-Turn on landing lights and seatbelts and no smoking signs after going below 10,000ft
Here we go, final approach.
-Decrease speed to 155knts
-Acknowledge the landing clearance if there is ATC
-Decrease further to 140knts
-Descent at -200fpm
-Idle the throttles at 30ft
-Land the plane
And here we are at the final destination.
-Vacate off the runway
-Turn off the strobe and landing lights
-Turn off the seatbelt and no smoking signs
-Turn off Engine 1
-Turn on APU
-Acknowledge taxi to parking
-Park at a random gate
-Accidentally parked at the cargo stands
-End the flight
Whooooo, that took long.
Thats what i do when i fly on IF, tell me if is the mistakes i did there and ill correct them hehehe
