Speedy Copilot for IXEG 737 Classic 5.1


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 11.26. Please install at least FLW 2.7.11 NG.

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

FLT INT channel on captain ACP active

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)

quick glance at both approach path and runway

(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.

What's New in Version 5.1   See changelog

Released

Version 5.0 from 2019-02-02

* TonyVier contributed with the idea and material for a new graphical user interface. His great suggestion was reworked and added.

* Tuning the copilot volume is now possible.

* Tuning the In Flight Entertainment volume is now possible for when the cockpit door is open.

* Options are also saved on the fly now : no more need to edit a file to save persistent options.

* Current status is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

* Speeds bugs are adjusted for VREF on approach, not only for departure now.

* V2 call is silenced as it is not said.

Version 5.1 from 2019-10-26

* Quick glance (runway entry trigger) does only happen from internal view now. It's better when only viewing at the aircraft from external view without true intention to trigger the runway entry flow. * Parking procedure starts with ANTICOL off as before, but also if the airplane is stopped and engines are off, to avoid triggering ground services when it's not time to. * JAR DESIGN Ground Handling Deluxe 4+ control added. Now the ground service is provided to you without your intervention as IRL from the captain point of view. * Added a general option to show or hide ALL messages and circling triggers displayed on screen, to allow screenshots. As it hides very important messages, it is not recommended to hide all messages for an extended period of time. * Before start procedure trigger changed from ANTICOL on to FLT INT (flight interphone) microphone on the captain audio control panel activated as if ready to contact ramp. (Now similar to other Speedy Copilot editions).
