While it is a truly accurate representation of the BoeingI quickly realized I had so much to learn to pilot this plane correctly. This helped immensely, but I wanted more.
I made the purchase and cocmpit it a good look over. You can drill down into every panel in the cockpit, see detailed descriptions, operations, schematics, diagrams, ATA codes, errors, indications, and condition states. There is even a setting to select carrier specific information such as from Southwest, RyanAir, American, United, and others.
