Instructor Station - Luis Gordo


What is Instructor Station ?

In flight simulation, an Instructor Operator Station (IOS) is designed to assist the instructor in controlling the simulation training environment and monitoring all aspects of pilot/crew performance in the simulator. The instructor can control, via this software, all functions such as aircraft position and systems, meteorological, environmental, and situational parameters.

The Instructor Station is meant to assist Aviation Professionals, Flight Simulation Enthusiasts and Home Cockpit Builders using Microsoft® Flight Simulator (FS) 2004™, FSX™ and ESP™, Lockheed Martin Prepar3D® and X-Plane®.

The Instructor Station allows setting the aircraft on an approach to a runway of choice under any weather conditions, start-up and shutdown network computers (fully customizable), program or set aircraft system failures at any moment, calculate the amount of fuel required for a flight and load it to the aircraft, record flight performance (approaches, manoeuvres, landings, take-offs, etc.) and plot it graphically, and many other things!

Compatible with all types of aircraft! It is also a great tool for anybody who wants to control the flight simulator externally.

Many features are also available for Project Magenta users (pmSystems, Glass Cockpit, CDU/MCDU, MCP/FCU), AST & FMGS JeeHell users.

Developed by a pilot, engineer & flight simulation enthusiast.

Wow Luis, this looks to be a great release. I'm still working to get to a point to where I can implement this and then plan to purchase. Thanks for a great package.

Just wanted to point out that with the new IS 2.0 you can input the weights and fuel loads automatically, but more important you can do it directly by fs stations as well. What that means is this; let's say you have a 5 fs station aircraft which is like what the PMDG 737-700 NGX has, so you use TopCat to figure out your weights for a whole trip. However, since your TopCat aircraft will not put the weights in the right locations because the model they have doesn't exactly match your PMDG plane, you have to go into the FSX menus to fix. And, you have to calculate and guess at it to get the CG% right. That means doing it 3-4 times...going to fuel/payload window.

Thus, using IS 2.0 you can do this in real time without going into FSX>Aircraft>Payload>Payload and Fuel window. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you wanted to make sure your CG% is setup correctly for the takeoff and landing, you can now make adjustments to the loads easily. Why is this really important? Have you ever performed an Autoland and the plane landed so heavy you swore the landing gear was not down? Well, that means your CG% was likely way out of norms for your landing, and that is likely do too the weights in the wrong fs stations.

Too me it is very important to set things right in the beginning. CG% is everything and it's the most important thing for all aspects of flying the entire flight.

Hi Folks,

Thanks for your kind words.  There was an important amount of work put into this release, but it is all well worth it if you guys find things useful.

I have released a minor update (couple of small bugs):

As well as a parallel version without the Voice control feature, which is not compatible with Windows XP and earlier OS versions:

Best regards,
Luis Gordo
