Intro I have had my fair share of reviewing FS2Crew products. I think it is safe to say this is arguably the best product Bryan York has designed so far. The product that this software is designed to supplement the PMDG NGX is without a doubt at least to my opinion the greatest add on ever designed for the MSFS platform, hence the challenge of creating a program in that level of quality was great indeed, but the FS2Crew team lived up to that challenge and although hard to believe made the NGX even better.
Technical Stuff The download version of the software comes in a mb ZIP file that gets quickly downloaded after the usual credit card swipe.
Installation is about as easy as it gets for a payware. There is no online activation, just your straight download get your code through email and install. All in all the installation process should not take more than 15 minutes. The guys at FS2Crew have a new start center software to help you get going quickly and painlessly once installed.
Getting ready to go with this particular FS2Crew product is surprisingly simple, you just run the start center, assign the FS2Crew to the NGX panel, choose which version you are going to be using voice or button and you are ready to go next time FSX runs. The start center has access to various online manuals that cover pretty much everything you are going to need to use this product effectively. It is important to cover the manuals and have them handy since the way this works is like a choreography which you need to follow to the dot to get the most out of it.
For old FS2Crew voice version users you should be up and going in no time with minimum manual review time. For the newcomers who have never used an FS2Crew product if there are any out there go over the manuals to understand important concepts such as terminologies, key words, flows, and what actions are done by the FO and which ones are done by the Captain.
Once the software loads it looks quite similar to the Wilco version. A dialogue appears on the upper left side of the screen which has all the buttons to access all the features that the program offers. You can either go straight to the preflight checklist which is where the cheat sheet I included here begins or do all the events prior to preflight.
I have the PMDG programmed to start in a setting that goes with starting the software on the preflight checklist phase. If you choose to do all the preflight preparations you will have to set the PMDG to load on a cold and dark state. Be mindful this takes about 30 minutes just to get to the preflight checklist so this is not a setting I chose.
Except for selecting pushback distances, playing pre departure and arrival briefings, and selecting other non critical voice actions you will be using your voice for everything while using FS2Crew.
You will use your voice to go over checklists and flows, give the FO instructions such as setting the heading in the AP or altitude, and communicating with ground personnel. The cheat sheet I included here has two pages that go over every single voice command included with the FS2Crew so review it.
It includes ETOPS procedures for those long hauls over the Atlantic, de-icing procedures, accurate missed approach procedures, and even a free version or video marshaller.
