When the plane reaches the take-off speed, use the arrow down key to lifting the aircraft and centre the mouse on the screen to keep the plane steady and if you are using the joystick, use the small throttle on the stick to accelerate the aircraft until it reaches take-off speed and pull on the stick until the aircraft level off, then press “G” key to retract the gear and Shift F to retract the flap.

You can use the scroll button on the top of the joystick to look around. To hide the instrument display, press the H key.Make sure to plug the joystick before opening the Google Earth Pro program.

If you are using the Fighter jet (F-16), you will notice it is faster than the regular aircraft. To explore the world slowly, you need to use the SR-22 aircraft because it travels at a slower speed.

Because you are using Flight Simulator in Google Earth, you will not be able to hear the noise of the aircraft.
