Let's take a look at the overhead panel! "Hell yeah!", I hear you say. It is after all the nerve center of the aircraft. Nothing goes in the aircraft until you consult the overhead panel first.
Stepping into the cockpit of an advanced aircraft for the first time trying to learn how to fly it with nothing to help you out but a manual, or maybe a good tutorial if you’re lucky, can be quite a daunting task.

"It is without a doubt that the Coolsky plane is one of the best aircraft addon for beginners. Its intuitive panel setup and amazingly helpful Super 80 Center with Integrated Cockpit Training System are for sure a treasure trove for those not familiar with jetliner (and MD-80!) procedures. As a result, I highly recommend this plane for beginners, or those that are simply not at all familiar with this type."
Flight1/Coolsky’s acclaimed Super 80 aircraft is now out in a double-aircraft boxed edition for FSX.
Now includes both the Classic and Professional Editions!
