Being an old design, the MD-80 cockpit has what seems like knobs and switches everywhere. This can be a bit confusing and overwhelming for the pilots just starting to fly this bird. One of the most frequently asked questions we get on the support forum is "how do you start it up?". Well, this video tutorial seeks to answer that very question.
What do you think about the 2D panel? I’m not asking about the 2D panel of any specific aircraft, just the 2D panel in general. Do you love it? Hate it? Don’t care? The reason I’m asking this question is because the DC-9 could very well be the last aircraft I make with a traditional 2D panel.
Failure simulation. This is what in my opinion takes the DC-9 Classic, and all other addons that includes such a feature, to the next level. Usually when you simulate a system in an aircraft, you simulate ON or OFF in a normal state. With failure simulation a system can also be simulated ON or OFF in a failed state. While OFF is usually OFF regardless of state, ON and failed at the same time is where it can get really busy real fast on the flight deck.

A new beta patch for the Super 80 Pro has been released. This is beta patch version 1.1.3. This beta patch is a small update to the Super 80 Pro gauge file, yet important as it should fix the last remaining known CTD bug. There are also a few other fixes to the FMS and some graphical updates.
