We currently offer a massive range of downloads for FSX, as well as older flight simulator add-ons for the ever-popular FS2004, FS2002, CFS3 and now becoming ever popular with dediced virtual aviators is Laminar Research's X-Plane series.
I am new to Microsoft Flight Simulator X and I am getting hang of it with 50-75 percent success of landing by MANUALLY, not by automatic APP jumbo jets such as 747, A321, and so on.
Considering the fact I am new to that great flight simulator, I will likely to ask lots of questions that I am sure all of you will find dumb or too easy. Please forgive me for that
My first question is when I park my 747 after 3 hour flight and press shift-f to call fuel truck for refueling, I turn off the engines but I am not cutting off fuel lines. I just turn off and turn on fuel lines so that the engines would turn off but electricty would remain working. While I am waiting for some time for the fuel truck to show up, the 747 instrumental panels go off by itself.
Is there any keyboard command to turn on the instrumental panel? I know that I can go to aircraft and pick 747 that will take back me to same place with instrumental panels on but that would be cheating. Is there any keyboard function to turn on the instrumental panel of 747 or A321 considering the fact there is no APC button. I am using 747 or A321 that comes with Flight Simulator X.
Thanks for all of your kind help and I look forward to answer for my very first question.
