Not much on this group about FSpassengers. Are very many of you using it.
It is a free to try download from FSpassengers.com. Can take off from KSFO
or KOAK and one other nearby field and fly to anywhere, with passengers
aboard. I discovered quickly that with passengers on board, you had better
develop smoother flying techniques if you want the passengers to fly with
you again. I think it is a great add-on and the fact that it is not
restricted in any way (other than the departing fields) is also a good
thing. If you don't want to pay then just use one of the three fields as
your home base. I took off last week and forgot to close the main exit.
Duh!!. Co-pilot warned me but it was too late, passengers started
screaming. I declared emergency and returned. As I landed, I hear the
sirens of the approaching emergency vehicles. Nice sound effects in
FSPassengers. Wish FS9 had ability to declare emergency. You could do that
with FlyII flight simulator, four or five years ago.

Doe FS Passengers work on small GA aircraft, too? I like to fly the default
Cessna 172 and Piper Cub (not much room for many passengers, though! :-)

I really like the idea of knowing how smooth of a flight I make. I think
that my FS flying needs a lot of work to be as smooth as it should be, but
FS2004 offers no feedback on this point (FS has only the "aircraft
overstress" crash, but it seems to let a lot of bad flying slide.)

That's because we discussed it until we ran out of things to say in the
beginning of August. You should drop in more often...

Sounds interesting. I fly the POSKY aircraft,which include tailstrike
detection and what appears to be engine overheat. I havent' quite
figured the latter out, but it seems like if you let N1 or N2 stay in
the red for more than a few seconds, you get engine fires. The
tailbanger effect won't let you rotate the 747 beyond 10 degrees without
getting a fire at the back. If I load up the 747 plus fuel to near the
MTOW, and keep N2 under 90%, that makes for really long takeoffs and
painfully slow climbs.

FSpassengers simulates 'tail strike' as well. First time I have had that
experience. It cost me $800,000 to make repairs to the fuselage after I
landed. Passengers were frightened at 'loud noise in rear of plane on
takeoff'. I may have had tailstrike before, but since FS9 has no warning
system modeled into the program (not even the sound effect) I have no way of
knowing. One of those situations were I thought I was a good fly-boy, but
FSpassengers has put me on notice my skills are lacking. I am improving. I
had one 737 flight with 100% satisfaction rating upon landing. Up to that
point I was thinking that was an impossible level to achieve. Does all the
POSKY aircraft model tail strike? I believe I have one of their birds
installed. I may purposefully try to strike the tail on T/O this afternoon,
to see what result I get. I did not know that about POSKY.

Short answer to your query, Matt is yes. It will not offer you flight
attendents who serve food & drink to passengers and captain. (poor first
officer never get anything.). I fly Beech 1900D frequently. Holds 8-10 pax
I believe. But they are always 100% satisfied on the short trips I make, (1
hour to 1.5 hour flights) But you still have to mind you flying techniques.
I am still 'evaluating' the free version. Maybe with birthday coming up, I
will spring for the $38.50 to get the pay version so I can go back to my
home field, KAND or nearby KATL to begin my trips.

Absolutely.
I gave the trial version a go a few weeks back and I found it rather
amusing. And it did give that special feeling of reality knowing that you
not only have to make sure the aircraft stays in the air, but you have to
make damn sure the passengers stay relaxed, busy and, above all, alive.

As soon as I've mastered the PMDG747 I'm gonna add FSP to my list of
ad-ons. And that was a conclusion I made before I even read Oskar's review.

I think FSPax is a good idea.. that is, if the plane dynamics are
modelled well (usually the case in payware). Also think Adv FSDat
(AFSD) is useful. Some of the math-types like to see all kinds of
flight data displayed.

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/hsors/FS_Soft/afsd.html


Additionally one could add JetTest gauge as a `popup' panel.

http://home.comcast.net/~flightsim/JetTest.gif


Wonder if a panel could have such a display:

Number of Pax with > 3 drink in them: 18
Number of intoxicated Pax: 5
Number of screaming infants on board: 1
Number of agent-spooks on board: 0
Number of Pax who almost wrung ticket agent's neck: 2
Number of disgruntled Pax on board: 3

etc..


ok let's get back to serious now.. would like to have FSPassenger but
need a new hardware platform first.. and a new budget for FlightSim.

Missed the runway and hit an equipment building which killed

I think the term is, oooops and ouch.

Altogether though, very good software.

Can you use 'real life' ATC like VATSIM, and use FSPassengers at the same
time?
When you install FSPassengers, can you play the FS 2004 as normal if you
choose, or does it always play in FSPassenger guise from then on?

Chris you can use FSpassengers with VATSIM ATC as usual. FSPassengers does
not start automatically. It is called up from the FS9 menu. You can also
exit during the flight whenever you want.

Hi Marcel,
at least the first two lines are highly improbable. You have to pay
for your drinks and so most people don't want that... (including
me). What about Air France? You have to drink something for making
you think that the attendants are smiling. :-)

I've never flown with Air France, but I always thought the French were
always charming? (like Canadians are extremely polite, Germans are loud,
Dutch are mellow, Brits are stuck up, Americans are picky, Swiss are mega
neutral, Austrains are yodelers, Italians are dramatical, Spanish are hot
tempered, Scots are boozers....did I leave anyone out? <g>)

Oh yes, the Aussies and the Kiwis!
Well...they're upside-down, so they have enough problems as it is. :-)))

Would be jetting all around the USA in the '80s working at test
facilities.. mainly doing far-field RF characteristics of aircraft.
Point is.. would often get loaded in the terminal and jet out!!

Not to mention travel to visit family in summer (vacation) and on
holidays. Don't travel as much anymore..mainly fly sober now-a-
days.. wouldn't want to snap at TSA.

It's from a 1970's National Lampoon.

Here's the rest of "Foreigners around the World"

Some of this stuff is over the top so sensitive ones need not visit the
site.

I just bought the program tonight and loaded up a Grumman C-2A Greyhound
for a trip from Norfolk, Va NAS out to CVN-69 using arrestor cables and
the carrier2004 package... I don't think my company will last long, the
passengers liked the flight o.k. (95%) right up until the carrier
trap... it dropped the satisfaction rating down to 50%...something about
a hard landing.. oh well, you can only land so soft on a carrier deck.

I was somewhat taken aback by their definition of Canadians until I read the
other ones. Now, I'm feeling pretty good about myself : )
