The DC-9 Classic manuals are now available as free downloads. If you would like to have a look at the User Manual (product details and features) or the Aircraft Operating Manual (operations and system descriptions) to see what the DC-9 Classic is all about or maybe get a head start on your type rating on the DC-9, please feel free to download them here.
With so many aircraft designs flying around, why choose to develop a DC-9 for FSX? It’s a cool aircraft! What more do you need?! Well, actually the logic behind choosing to develop the DC-9 goes a bit deeper than that. I will try to explain.
Why do you have to open the pneumatic crossfeed valves to de-ice the wings? Exactly what does the AC bus cross-tie switch do? And why do the engines only draw fuel from the center tank when all the fuel booster pumps are on? The key to understanding these and many other aspects of your aircraft is studying the schematic drawings for the various aircraft systems. That may sound a little bit dry, but to help you out I have included a Schematics section in the DC-9 Classic Flight Center that gives you live interactive schematic drawings.

The sound files contained within this package are a bit louder and more powerful than those included in the original DC-9 Classic sound set. While this may not be more realistic than the original sound set, it certainly has a great impact on the overal immersion factor and feeling of being there when flying the DC-9 Classic.
Multi Crew Experience now fully supports the DC-9 Classic.
Multi Crew Experience is a new add-on to the award winning, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, and FS2004® software. It adds the missing elements, like crew coordination, interactive checklist reading, realistic ATC operation, call-outs and warnings against deviation from standards, as well as extras, like user interface voice control.
