Pilot Academy Hints for PSP
Go to single player-lessons and select military. Complete the"air-air countermeasures" then search for the F-15 in free flight mode.
When you turn you notice that all the plane does is lean. When it is leaning just sort of keep tapping up on the stick and the plane will turn sharper.
Another way is to press and hold either L or R and it will lean and turn.
On the jet planes you have an afterburner. To use this you have to hold Triangle 100%, and you will notice the back lights up.
The good thing about this is you can hold it forever and your aircraft Integrity will not go Down.
On the level where you have to collect something from volcano's you have to get down low into the opening and quickly spring back up. Then you will have got it.
When I say you have to go low I mean only just about touching the lava.
Dont worry about the big fireballs that jump up out of the volcano, they just bounce off. BUT< they may do damage if they hit you loads of times.
To use the Airbrakes just press L & R together. You will notice an arrow pointing to a straight line on the bottom right hand corner.
When you are begining to land, it says put your Gear to Landing on the training part of the game. Do this and your plane will go up. To prevent this just use your Airbrakes. Then put your throttle to zero. Your plane will begin to descend quite sharp, if it does just increase your throttle. Be in line with the runway and then as you come close to the runway put your nose up. You have to be close to the ground but as you do this use your airbrakes. You plane should have touched the floor with it's nose up, so just brake with your wheels and press up on the stick.
Keep on braking until you come to a stop.
(Sometimes you need to use the Airbrakes whilst on the ground to come to a stop in the 747)
To retrct your wheels on your plane hold down Select for about a second and then let go. Your wheels will go in. Do the same when you are landing.
When you do this your gears (i.e Neutral, Landing & Take-Off) will not change. You will have to do this youreself.
When you put your throttle to full, keep it going at full until you begin to go off the ground. When you do this press Select to put your gear on Take - Off and you will start to take off. Once you get to a height where your plane starts to descend, put your gear to Neutral and move the stick down so you will stay up. Keep doing this until you have enough speed and then release your throttle down to about 3/5 of the way up and your plane will start to glide.
You have to be carefull because on the Global Express you have to hold down the stick because it dosent glide. Eventually your Aircraft Integrity will go down if you go too fast in the Global Express to try and Glide.
If you are just flying around and your aircraft integrity goes down, a way to prevent this is to go slower. Every plane has a max speed but if you are going down it will speed up. Just use your air brakes and go up or straight.
-The 747 has the max speed of 400 Knots
-The Global Express has a max speed of 300 Knots
