Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Connecting External Power and Air

Recommended Posts

As per the tutorial, I try to assign a key to connect external power but there is none.

Switching on the external Power while the parking brake is engaged does not provide power and air to the aircraft. 

How does the power and air become available?


I may of course be doing something wrong, please enlighten me.

The operating manual explains how to do this:


"External air (needed to start the first engine) is available by whatever keypress is set for "Tail hook (up/down)" in your controls setup accessed through the simulator's options menus. Look for the tail hook key press entry under "systems" and note the keypress required or assign a command if none is present. The command for "Water rudder (up/down)" will toggle external electrical power on and off. The aircraft must be on the ground and stationary for the command to work. Find the command and note or assign the required keypress."


In the simulator controls look for the Tail hook and Water rudder items.
