How to fly
After starting engines and activating 5, 6, 7, flaps (VTOL) to half a notch down. Full throttle. At 250 miles per hour, pull up. Pull up gear. At 6,000 ft, flaps up. Cruising is 7,000 ft. Throttle to 90%.
When you start descent from 7,000 or 6,000 ft, Throttle to 70% - 80%. At 4,000 ft, flaps to 25% down. Landing gear down. Throttle to 60%. When you are on short final, full flaps. Just before you touch down, pull up to hit the ground main landing gear first. As soon as you touch down, pull throttle back for speed brakes, reverse thrust, and brakes. On the new engine option versions (neo), the reverse thrust panels will slide back. When you reach 30 mph, make sure brakes are off, then deactivate 3 and 4. This means the reverse thrust and main thrust will stop. Taxi to designated gate.
Engine & Plane Shutdown
When at gate, stop. Deactivate everything.
To back out of gate and get started again
Activate engines. Activate everything else. Flaps to takeoff. Pull throttle back for reverse thrust. You will start backing up. Turn as you back up to line up with taxiway. Taxi to runway. When at runway, follow takeoff instructions.
