Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 Classic 4.1


About This File

Description

Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 makes for you the steps normally done by the first officer and pilot monitoring, when you are pilot flying and captain of a Boeing 737.

This plugin is intended for the IXEG 737 (version 1.21). It was tested and works with X-plane 11.21 to 11.26.

The Flight Crew Operating Manual makes a clear separation between actions from left and right seats. So we'd like to have the right hand actions (first officer and pilot monitoring) done for us in reaction to the phase of flight and to left seat actions (captain and pilot flying).

Remember that the Copilot is not calling the checklist. The copilot is doing the procedure. We suggest that you run on your own the checklist at the end of each procedure.

We have made the transcription of the following procedures :

The procedures are either manually triggered or automatically called.

 

Triggered by...

Preflight procedure

the left hand side oxygen mask test

Before start

the beacon to ON

Engine start

Captain start or on-screen action (click-to-start)

Before taxi

Automatic.

Taxi flow after flight controls check, cabin check

Perform flight controls check.

Runway Entry procedure (including TCAS)

(or Landing lights ON).

Take off run : gear and flaps retraction schedule

Automatic.

Flight 100 and climbing items

Automatic.

Flight 100 and descending items

Automatic.

Approach, flaps extension schedule

Automatic.

Go around (reversion to Take Off above)

Automatic.

After landing procedure

spoilers down on ground

Apron entry (lights and doors)

runway turnoff lights OFF

Shutdown procedure until turn around state

beacon to OFF

Secure procedure

on-screen action (click-to-secure or click-to-restart)

Additional features

  • You can listen to the cabin PA and boarding music if PA receiver is activated on the left hand side Radio Management Panel. Cabin crew is handled by Speedy Copilot without pilot intervention according to phase of flight.
  • In addition, the first officer pressure altimeter setting is linked to the captain's one. If you change the barometric settings, the F/O will synchronize his one.

Context

Several virtual copilot options might have existed previously but they seamed challenging to install and maintain, or required payware software. The intent in this Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 project was to provide a very simple solution yet realistic and efficient. We made a transcript from the FCOM into a Lua script for the IXEG 737. The first version of Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 was released in June 2018. In August 2018, we published Speedy Copilot 320 for FF/STS A320 Ultimate. Based on the success of  Speedy Copilot 320, many users reports and five months of updates and evolution, we transferred-back some exciting features to Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737, which led to version 4.

* New system for the FO to move the engine start switches : click-to-start. Reworked engine start.

* Galley OFF now only used to reboot for next leg, and no more as general reset of Speedy Copilot.

* Secure procedure added.

* Reworked shutdown procedure.

* Reworked go-around sensitivity and approach phase sensitivity to allow circle-to-lands.

* Crew behavior more complex

* Passenger sounds added

* Some sounds renamed for plugins compatibility

* Reorganized options to mimic Speedy Copilot 320

* Persistent options in a separate configuration file IXEG-options.lua

* Option (config file) to remove unessential sounds to ease compatibility with FlyWithLua plugins

* Global switch to activate/deactivate Speedy Copilot actions without removing the Lua script.

Version 4.1 from 2018-11-3

* Finer flaps and gear extension schedule, manual updated accordingly.

* First Officer now waits for push-back to be completed before doing the “Before taxi procedure”.
