About This Content

Learn the technical and non-technical skills required to effectively manage an aircraft in difficult circumstances such as closed runways and system failures.
Whether sightseeing in a Piper or navigating the Atlantic, the pilot in command is the one in charge when things turn sour.

Developed by a real world airline captain, FS Academy - In Command will arm you with the knowledge and skills you’ll need to deal with challenging situations and system failures in a realistic way.

These six demanding missions use several different core aircraft in a variety of locations and weather conditions. This pack also includes a detailed, Ground School component, which guides you through the essential knowledge and techniques essential to taking command of an aircraft including but not limited to:

  • The role and responsibility of The Commander
  • Management of system failures and difficult situations
  • The decision-making process
  • Fuel Planning
  • Aircraft Loading
  • Altimetry
  • Airport Facilities, Lighting and Markings
  • ICAO Annexes and Airport Codes
  • Hazardous Weather
  • Decoding METAR & TAF Weather Reports
  • And more…

Click the 'View Manual' link on the right hand side of this page to view the comprehensive groundschool manual and learn the essential skills you will need before tackling the missions (you can print it out for reference during flight).

The skills you will learn from FS Academy - In Command are transferable to almost any aircraft, from a Cherokee or a Jumbo Jet, the decision-making process is effectively the same.
