Autopilot is a useful feature in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Here’s how you can enable it and what the various options do in it.
Flying high in the sky is a frightening experience if you are a newcomer. Like staying in the wide blue sky with clouds floating with you is a completely different gaming experience. The plane can go right to left and left-right in no time. So to provide you with a fixed position, Microsoft Flight Simulator’s autopilot controlling is to the rescue. This feature will allow you to have a basic helper that would fly the aircraft for you. With this, you can just sit back and enjoy your flight with the amazing view.
How To Use Autopilot in Microsoft Flight Simulator
A Flight Plan:
When you have enabled the autopilot mode then the flight plan is set on easy terms. You need to select the departure and arrival destinations. Once you do that, add some of the other destinations to your trip and enjoy the flight. It works in a way that after setting your departure Airport and the arrival Airport you can add stops in the journey from the map. You can choose this option by clicking on the destination and choose the Add option.
How To Enable The Autopilot Feature:
You can enable it from the runway. After choosing the AI Control icon, the following options will be given to you.
- A To-Do list will help you with the necessary options. A checklist will provide you the assistance from turning off the parking brake to pulling in your landing gear.
- To allow a communication series between Al co-pilot with the air traffic control, Manage Radio Comms will help you do it successfully.
- To have a smooth trip, Control Aircraft will do the service. It will allow the co-pilot to handle all the entered flights for you. You just have to enjoy your flight by sitting in the back.
Before taking your next flight, make sure to turn off this feature, or else the co-pilot will automatically select another flight all by himself.
