News No. 1.
Virtual flight engineer has been implemented - he will handle fine tuning of the autopilot controlls.
Normal work of the autopilot is characterized by fluctuations of arrows "K", "T", on the (IN-4) trim indicator of the automatic flight control system near to their neutral positions.



In case arrows "T" or "K" are near their limits, the flight engineer at the command of the first pilot should tune them to neutral positions using pitch and bank channels' centering handles on the (AP-34B) autopilot control panel.



Fine tuning of the autopilot in game had to be done using key commands or mouse manually, also by shuting down and turning on the autopilot that distracted user from the piloting process, because in game he was only one to controll everything. And in real life fine tuning of the autopilot handles the other crew members not engaged in piloting.
Now in game we have an additional option - the autopilot's auto-tune. Activation of "AUTOPILOT ADJUSTMENT" options enables automatic fine tuning of indexes on the (IN-4) trim indicator bringing them to neutral positions, without any user input.



We implemented a specific command which can be assigned to keyboard or joystick. Command activated by player starts the process of (IN-4) trim indicator indexes fine tuning from any positions they been at the moment untill indexes become centered.



Thus, the Mi-8MTV2 helicopter aircrew commander shell not distracted from his direct duties and pay a maximum attention to flight itself.
