  • DC-9 Classic Schematics

    Why do you have to open the pneumatic crossfeed valves to de-ice the wings? Exactly what does the AC bus cross-tie switch do? And why do the engines only draw fuel from the center tank when all the fuel booster pumps are on? The key to understanding these and many other aspects of your aircraft is studying the schematic drawings for the various aircraft systems. That may sound a little bit dry, but to help you out I have included a Schematics section in the DC-9 Classic Flight Center that gives you live interactive schematic drawings.

     
  • DC-9 Classic Flight Center

    The Flight Center is the starting point for all aircraft administration, dispatch, options, training and failure simulation. You can also access the Navigation Simulator and the live schematic system views from the Flight Center.

"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."
