What Does it Do?

Self-Loading Cargo allows you to interact and work with a virtual cabin crew and ground crew to ensure the safety, security and satisfaction of your passengers throughout the course of your airliner flights.


Intercom, Public Address System & Ground Radio

Make realistic in-flight announcements to your passengers, work closely with your cabin crew to manage the aircraft during different phases of flight, deal with technical setbacks, medical issues or problematic passengers and manage the in-flight services provided throughout the flight.

You can work with your ground crew via the ground radio to manage loading the aircraft, pushback from the gate and disembarking your passengers after arrival - all with localised voices based on the airport locations.

Authentic Seating Arrangements and Inflight-Services

Using authentic aircraft cabin layouts to control the seating arrangement and facilities onboard the aircraft, Self-Loading Cargo simulates individual passengers in real-time using their own unique personalities and requirements to determine how much they enjoy your flights and how they react to any issues that may occur onboard or how well they are treated.

Pilot Grading & Passenger Satisfaction System

Throughout the course of your flight, Self-Loading Cargo continually monitors how well you control the aircraft and how effectively you communicate with the cabin crew and passengers in the back.

Additionally, your passengers are individually simulated in real-time and they will rate their flight based on how satisfied they are with the service levels, punctuality, communications and of course their flight comfort - all mixed with their own individual personalities and quirks.

Once you land, you'll receive a flight report showing any comments and a pilot rating to show how well you've done and where you can improve on your next flight.

What does it add to your simulator?

Developed from the ground-up to simulate airline protocols as realistically as possible, Self-Loading Cargo brings a whole new level of immersion (and workload!) to your airliner flights in Microsoft Flight Simulator, P3D, FSX and X-Plane1.
