In both Europe and America light planes are popular for aviation. At our Flight Club we use biplanes to teach basic flight and landing techniques, so our students may learn to make an accurate landing every time. Controller Operation ===================== (Operation is also explained on screen for all Vehicles) Lowers Nose (Used to Descend) | B: Decreases throttle setting Turn Left ----- Turn Right (Used for brake after landing) | A: Increases throttle setting Raises Nose (Used to Climb) FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS (drawing of a craft stalling) -When landing, if the throttle setting is reduced too much, the aircraft will respond slowly, and stalling may occur even when the aircraft is horizontal. (drawings of turn radius varying with speed) -As your speed increases, your craft's responsiveness to turning will become slower, even if the turning angle remains unchanged. A faster throttle setting will make climbing easier. A slower setting will make descending easier. 7 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- FLIGHT AREA 1 OPERATION EXAMPLE (4 screenshots showing plane coming in for landing) 1 The test starts at an altitude of 300 feet with an throttle setting of 51%. The aircraft is horizontal. There is no wind. The green band stretching in front of the runway is the guide bean showing you the suggested glide path. 2 First fly toward the guide beam. It may be necessary to raise or lower the nose. It is OK to increase the throttle setting slightly, making it high in the beginning of your flight. Avoid swinging the aircraft to the right or left. 3 Advance toward the green ball. When the altitude reaches 200 feet or less, your height above ground will be displayed on the altitude scale. When your altitude becomes 50 feet or less, the altitude scale will be come enlarged. Pay close attention to the runway at the end of the beam. 4 Maintain the guide beam angle, properly follow any on screen instructions that appear and touch down carefully. Apply the brakes to stop the aircraft as soon as the craft touches the ground. It is best to stop directly on the white center line. (screenshot of Tony) ADVICE The Flight Club puts considerable emphasis on the light plane course, so much so that a light plane test will be taken in each area. Master the basic craft, and success should be easy. (Tony) 8 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Chapter 2: SKY DIVING In this course you learn to skydive by climbing to an altitude of 3800 feet in a helicopter. Jump (with a parachute) and accurately land on target. Earn skill points by diving through the rings before you open the parachute. For safety, The Flight Club uses square, steerable parachutes. Controller Operation ===================== Lean Forward | A: Press to bypass the climbing Turn Left ----- Turn Right screen. Parachute may be | opened at 1000 feet or less. Lean Backward Flare (Air Brake after opening 'chute) FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS (drawing of a parachutist) -The direction of your flight changes if you alter the air flow by changing your balance when diving. (drawing of the effects of flaring) -How to use flare (air braking) after the parachute opens: -If a flare is used when the gliding speed is fast, your body will buoy up slightly, then float downward. Your rate of decent will increase if you flare too strongly when your glide speed is slow. 9 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- FLIGHT AREA 1 OPERATION EXAMPLE (4 screenshots of parachuting) 1 The helicopter will be climbing to an altitude of 3800. Check the target position and scoring very carefully. If you wish to bypass the climb, press the A Button to quickly move up to your diving altitude. 2 Begin your dive when your altitude reaches 3800 feet. Just after beginning the fall you will see a ring. Pass through this ring first. Do not move around very much until you get the hang of skydiving. 3 There are 3 rings. Once you understand how to pass through them, you will have more confidence about your dive. The parachute may be opened at an altitude of 1000 feet or less. At that time you should reconfirm the target position and begin to make any necessary corrections. 4 Zero in on the target by controlling with right and left turns and by flaring. If you apply the flare too strongly, your rate of descent will become faster, so be careful. If you want a really high score you may want to aim at the moving target. (screenshot of Tony) ADVICE The technique of passing through the rings is required for all future tests. Failure to pass through the rings will make it increasingly more difficult to progress through the flight areas. Failure should be used as a stepping stone to success. Even if you do not pass on the first try, take time to understand the positions, size, etc. of rings. (Tony) 10 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Chapter 3: ROCKET BELT Originally only an air vehicle in science fiction, the Rocket Belt began to become popular for aerial stunts after being demonstrated at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. Although the sport is still young, The Flight Club is taking a pioneer role as the only organization offering a Rocket Belt course anywhere in the country. For safety's sake, closely follow the instructions of each of your instructors when using it. Controller Operation ===================== Point Jets Forward L,R: Changes View Point | A: Fast Jets Throttle Turn Left ----- Turn Right B: Slow Jets Throttle | Point Jets Backward FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS -Inertia has considerable influence. (drawings showing that if you are moving and apply the jets you don't change direction immediately) -It will take longer if you overcorrect; it is best to use your slow blast jets for the greatest fuel economy. 11 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- FLIGHT AREA 2 OPERATION EXAMPLE (4 screenshots of rocket belt) 1 The starting position for the Rocket Belt is on the moving target platform. First launch the rocket, then pass through the ring directly in front of you. Rocket Belt flight is greatly influenced by inertia, so try to avoid any excessive movement. The ring will change to red after you have passed through. 2 The Rocket Belt will always climb even if the jets are swept into a forward or reverse angle. Pay particular attention to your altitude. If the Rocket Belt is flown too high, you must prevent it from leaving the flight area. To aid in determining position it may be advisable to try switching the viewpoint. 3 As you approach the floating ball it will become a ring. Take time now to look around and locate the remaining rings. Always remember, due to the law of inertia, after making in-flight adjustments to your course angle that it will be difficult to advance in a straight line. Learn to understand the movement of the Rocket Belt and the influence of inertia on your flight to successfully pass through the rings. 4 Return to the target after passing through the 3 rings. Try to land smoothly by switching the viewpoint and adjusting the jet's force. It is not easy to land slowly and momentary touch down may not be regarded as a landing. For the highest accuracy points, try landing on the moving target. (screenshot of Shirley) ADVICE Stay at an altitude at which you can easily pass through the rings. Also, pay attention and do not run out of fuel. (Shirley) 12 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Chapter 4: HANG GLIDER This sport may already be familiar to you. Hang gliding has been popular for many years in California and the West Coast. In the course you will be towed to your release altitude by a light plane. When you approach the release point you will be cut free and begin your glide. Follow the prescribed curriculum, then land precisely within the specified area. How you utilize the ascending air currents (thermals) is also a very important point. Controller Operation ===================== Point Nose Down (Used to Descend) | A: (Flare = air brake for Turn Left ----- Turn Right landing. The kite will also | make a steeper turn if flared Raises Nose (Used to Climb) during a right or left turn.) FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS (drawings of a kite flaring while landing) -Flare when landing. -If flare is used, the kite will buoy up slightly, then reduce its speed. -Choose the best time to land by flaring carefully. -Try for the over water target after you have gained confidence and can make stable landings. 13 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- FLIGHT AREA 3 OPERATION EXAMPLE (4 screenshots of a hang glider landing) 1 You will start at an altitude of 300 feet or more. First, aim at the white ascending air current (thermal) moving in an upwards spiral, in front of you. Advance in such a way that you pass through the pillar of that current. If you succeed in catching that thermal, you will be alerted by a warning chime, and by observing the altimeter. 2 You altitude increases when you are in the thermal. After you have reached the target altitude of 500 feet all that remains is to land on the specified target area. If you miss the current, or do not reach the required altitude, turn around to approach the ascending current again until you do. 3 Do not lose sight to the target position when descending. To complete a steep turn, first make a regular turn, then flare to steepen the turn. Make sure to pay close attention to your rate of descent. 4 Carefully approach the target and flare to brake. Pay attention to the altitude scale displayed at the lower right as you land. Attempting to land when your descent rate is too fast is very dangerous and should be avoided. (screenshot of Lance) ADVICE Aim for the thermal current, and do not give up until you reach the target altitude. Also, good luck. (Lance) 14 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Chapter 5 : HELICOPTER Since a variety of skills are necessary to be considered an aviation specialist, we will also study the operational theory of a helicopter. At the present time, The Flight Club does not own a helicopter for use in flight lessons. This guide explains the operation of an attack helicopter we have borrowed at times from a top secret government source. Learn these controls, and be prepared if it becomes available again. Controller Operation ===================== Lowers Nose to Advance Forward L, R: Fire Right and Left Missiles | A: Increase Throttle Setting Turn Left ----- Turn Right B: Decrease Throttle Setting | Raises Nose to Advance in Reverse | -- -- The gunsight for Missiles will appear in front of the | helicopter during a battle. FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS (drawings of a helicopter) -The movement direction changes depending on the rotor inclination. (screenshot of Big Al) ADVICE Don't crash! (Big Al) 15 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- THE INSTRUMENT PANEL AND GAUGES -Radar (diagram of radar) Your Position (at center) The target position will blink when outside of range. If a target position is in radar range, it is displayed as a red dot. -Wind Velocity display within radar range: If it is windy, the direction is displayed as a streamer. -Throttle Setting 0 to 99% is displayed. -Incliminometer -Fuel Gauge Fuel consumption varies according to the equipment being used. -Altimeter(ALT) 5 digits are displayed on the center panel. Unit FT (1FT=0.3m) An altitude scale will appear at the lower right when your altitude is 200 feet or less. This altitude scale display is enlarged when your altitude becomes 50 feet or less. LIGHT PLANE SCORING SUPPLEMENT - Landing Accuracy The point of reference for this score is the white line at the center of the runway. The score is determined by how accurately you land (judged by the position when you touched the ground) and where stop (judged by the position when the aircraft completely stopped). If you come to a stop off of the runway, even if you touched down, you landed squarely on the white line, or if your stop position is not on the white line (even if you are near the line), you will not receive the highest score. - Approach Angle This is the angle between the aircraft and the runway when the plane touched the ground at landing. Bouncing after landing will cause a lower score. It is best to land at the same angle as the guide beam. 16 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- EXTRA THE FLIGHT CLUB INSIDE STORY - There are many unknown facts about The Flight Club, most notably about the founder and the head office. It is often called a mystery school, as no one knows for sure what goes on behind the scenes. - Instructors (4 screenshots of the instructors) TONY Perfect for the beginning student. His gentle manners allow him to get the most out of timid beginners. Although he is quite young, do not be fooled; this skilled pilot is on of the school's hottest aviators. SHIRLEY Although somewhat of a flirt with her mail students, Shirley is strictly professional when it comes grading. Even when she is disappointed by a performance, she will offer encouragement to try to keep up one's spirits. LANCE A mysterious man who speaks fluently in six languages. It is rumored that he formerly was an Air Force pilot. BIG AL He has the most experience of all of the instructors. His superior flight techniques are used for reviewing basics on out most difficult course. He looks tough, but some claim to have seen his tears. - An expert course has been prepared for those who want thorough and strict training. Prerequisite for entry into the advanced course will be possession of an International Gold License To Fly. Few details are known about the expert course other than its extreme difficulty. - This game will be much more impressive if you listen to its sound in stereo. For this, we recommend using a stereo AV cable for connection the SUPER NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM to your TV. 17 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- FLIGHT CLUB MEMBERSHIP CARD 18 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- MEMO 19 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- MEMO 20 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- MEMO 21 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 90-DAY LIMITED WARRANTY (body omitted) 22 -----------------------------------------------------------------------
