Hi Will,

Thanks to Alex B also for his quote from my tutorial ! First steps are to press Connect to PSX button on FiFLi panel.  Recommended is that this is done as in tutorial is said but I got habit (and it works also) to press Connect button as soon as PSX is loaded, no matter if power is connected (message in the FIFLi window should be: Parked at the ground). Second status change is initiated when you rotate  FLT DK DOOR selector in any direction - that is when boarding / FO preparation starts. Form here, you just follow standard flow, exceptionally you can shorten boarding simulation by rotating FLT DK DOOR selector in any direction - again (but bear in mind that FO preflight procedures will go on until they are finished - this is due programming - still on to do list is that FO actions also stop with stopping boarding actions).

best regards

Thanks for the information about the status changes; that's what I was looking for. It's a good way to see if FiFLi is on track. I started cold and dark, powered up the aircraft, and then I think the status was immediately "Preflight checklist." What is the trigger for getting to that phase of FiFLi?
Thanks again.

Hi Will,

First message after you check "Connect me to PSX!" should be "Parked at the gate". After that you will usually start preflight procedures by rotating FLT DK DOOR selector. If you change Beacon switch either side (or you have it on) FiFLi will initiate "Before start procedure" and FO will do various tasks in preparing plane for starting engines. Message will change to "Before start checklist" when FO is done.

I must review my tutorial because it is not updated recently, sorry for that.


best regards

Hi Vito,
FiFli is very realist and works fine. I've just a problem vhen arriving at holding point. I stop taxi, then obtain clearance to enter the RWY, Flt dk door is turned on DENY and release and there nothing happens ?
Current Fifli phase stay at Before start checklist. To obtain the next Fifli phase i have to quit Fifli, and then restart it, and wait
Can you help me ? What is wrong ?
Pierre.

Hi Pierre,

here is answer from previous post:

Also to tell FiFLi that takeoff is imminent or to enter "runway entry mode", few items have to be set first, from what I can remember for is that flaps must be in takeofff configuration, beacon and strobes must be on ...

Here is the newest beta 0.71:

beta 0.71
- Simulation of boarding (starts when you rotate FLT DK DOOR selector) now also reflects in ZFW value being changed (increased), ZFW will automatically increase towards inserted Planned ZFW value (you can check this on CDU by selecting PERF INIT page) , also value entered in - Planned fuel will automatically trigger fuel loading - if values in respective fields stays “0” ZFW and Fuel will not be automatically updated / loaded
- Climb and cruize Flight attendant message is now played only when you are higher than minimum altitude (cca 10000 ft) and seat belts switch is tuned to auto or off

Complete package is available at (recommended because some new sounds added):
