The Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400 features a custom flight dynamics engine that simulates the aerodynamics and performance of the real aircraft, including the effects of wind, icing, propeller discing and auto rotation. It also has a fully functional weather radar that can display the actual FSX weather conditions and provide terrain mapping and ground clutter simulation. The add-on also includes a sophisticated Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) that can detect and warn you of nearby traffic, both AI and online.


One of the most impressive features of the Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400 is the dual Flight Management System (FMS) that simulates the Universal 1E FMS used in the real aircraft. The FMS can perform navigation in three dimensions (LNAV+VNAV), RNP-based navigation and fuel and performance management. You can also use the up-to-date navigation database provided by Navigraph (subject to additional charges) to access the latest procedures and waypoints.


The Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400 also has a realistic sound system that uses custom DSP effects to reproduce the propeller sounds correctly. The sound system is also 3D-enabled for both external and internal sounds, including the switches and controls sounds as well as the cockpit environment sounds.


In this guide, we will show you how to fly the Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400 in FSX, from cold and dark start to landing and shutdown. We will cover the basic procedures and tips for operating this complex and rewarding aircraft.


Cold and Dark Start




The first step to fly the Majestic Software Dash 8 Q400 is to set up the aircraft in a cold and dark state.

  • Turn on both IRS mode selectors on the overhead panel to NAV.



  • Wait for the IRS alignment to complete. This may take a few minutes depending on your location. You can check the progress on the EICAS display.



  • When the alignment is complete, you will see a green ALIGN light on both IRS mode selectors and a green ON DC light on the IRS display unit on the pedestal.



  • Enter your current position and flight plan into the FMS using the control display unit (CDU) on the pedestal. You can use the FSX flight planner to create your flight plan and load it into the FMS using the FPLN RECALL function.



  • Verify and activate your flight plan on the CDU. You can also enter your performance data, such as cruise altitude, speed, fuel and weight.



  • Check that your navigation source is set to FMS1 or FMS2 on both display source selectors on the glareshield panel.



  • Check that your navigation mode is set to FMS on both EFIS control panels on the glareshield panel.



You should now have your IRS and FMS ready for your flight. The next step is to start up the engines and configure the aircraft for taxi.


Engine Start and Taxi




To start up the engines and taxi to the runway, follow these steps:


  • Request pushback and clearance from ATC if available.



  • Set the parking brake on the pedestal.



  • Turn on both fuel pumps on the overhead panel.



  • Turn on both engine start selectors on the overhead panel to START & FEATHER.



  • Turn on both engine ignition switches on the overhead panel to NORM.



  • Turn off both condition levers on the pedestal to FUEL OFF.



  • When you are ready to start engine 2 (right engine), turn on the starter switch for engine 2 on the overhead panel.



  • Monitor the engine parameters on the EICAS display. When the NG (gas generator speed) reaches 12%, move the condition lever for engine 2 to START FEATHER.



  • When the NG reaches 52%, move the condition lever for engine 2 to MAX.



  • When the engine start is complete, you will hear a chime and see a green STARTER OFF light on the overhead panel. Turn off the starter switch for engine 2.



  • Repeat steps 7 to 10 for engine 1 (left engine).



  • When both engines are running, turn off both engine ignition switches on the overhead panel.



  • Turn off external power if used and disconnect it using Shift+J.
