Control the current camera view and zoom as well as use the aircraft slew mode to move your aircraft exactly to the position you need it.

Camera View

The left section in the screen controls the current camera view.

Cockpit Views

First there is an easy way to go back to the cockpit view: You can either go back to the virtual cockpit (3D) or the 2D cockpit.

:i: Note: These buttons are only working if there is a 3D or 2D cockpit available for your current aircraft.

Additionally, there can be up to three custom view buttons defined in the Settings module, for example to counteract parallax effects of different cockpit sitting positions.

:i: Note: If Prepar3D is used with multiple views (with multiple projectors, for example) changing the view is only supported as long as the main Prepar3D camera view has focus.

Horizontal View Change

With the left two buttons you can move the view forward or backward.

The other buttons can be used to move the view to all directions.

:i: Note: The arrows are displayed based on the virtual cockpit perspective.


Use these buttons rotate the view left and right or up and down.

:i: Note: This section is not available for X-Plane.


Here you can zoom the view in and out by using two different speed levels.

Reset and External Views

Additionally you can reset the current view to its defaults.

Or iterate through all external views defined by the currently loaded aircraft.

Slew Mode

The right section in the screen controls the slew mode.

You can use this to move your aircraft exactly to the position where you need it.

Enable/Disable, Stop and Reset

First you need to enable the slew mode with the corresponding button. You can disable it by clicking the same button again.

There is also an option to stop slew (without disabling it).

You can also reset heading, pitch and bank to zero with just one click.

:i: Note: This option is not available for X-Plane.

Horizontal Slew

Here you can slew the aircraft forward and backward, left and right as well as turn it left and right.

Move Up/Down and Banking

Next you can move the aircraft up and down as well as bank it left and right.


Finally you can pitch the aircraft up and down.
