The Mad Dog is a nickname for the MD-80 series of jetliners developed by McDonnell Douglas from the DC-9. The Mad Dog is known for its loud engines and steep climb performance. If you want to experience flying this classic aircraft in FSX, you will need a high-quality add-on that replicates its systems and features. One of the best options available is the Fly the Maddog X by Leonardo Softhouse, which offers a study-level simulation of the MD-82 variant. In this article, we will show you how to install and fly the Mad Dog in FSX.

How to Install the Fly the Maddog X

The Fly the Maddog X is a payware add-on that can be purchased from the Leonardo Softhouse website or from various online stores. The add-on is compatible with FSX, FSX:SE, P3D v3.x, P3D v4.x, and MSFS 2020. To install the Fly the Maddog X, you will need to follow these steps:

  • Download the installer from the website or store where you bought the add-on.

  • Run the installer and follow the instructions on the screen. You will need to enter your serial number and select your simulator version.

  • After the installation is complete, you will find a new folder called LAGO_MADDOG in your FSX main folder.

  • If you want to update your Maddog X with the latest Jeppesen navdata from Navigraph, you will need to download and run the Navigraph Navdata Center. You will also need a Navigraph account and an active subscription. In the Navigraph Navdata Center, you will see a package for the Fly the Maddog X that you can install with one click.

  • If you want to load your SimBrief flight plans into the Maddog X, you will need to create a free account on and generate your flight plan there. You can then download your flight plan from SimBrief and load it into the Maddog X FMC (Flight Management Computer), EFB (Electronic Flight Bag), and Load Manager.

How to Fly the Mad Dog in FSX

The Fly the Maddog X is a complex and realistic add-on that requires a lot of knowledge and skill to operate. You will need to read the manuals and tutorials that are included in the LAGO_MADDOG folder or on the Leonardo Softhouse website. You will also need to familiarize yourself with the cockpit layout, systems, procedures, and performance of the MD-82. Here are some basic tips to help you get started:

  • To start a flight with the Maddog X, you can either select a cold and dark state or a ready for takeoff state from the Load Manager. The Load Manager also allows you to set your fuel, payload, weather, failures, options, and preferences.

  • To power up the aircraft, you will need to connect external power or use the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit). You will also need to align the IRS (Inertial Reference System) and set up your FMC with your flight plan data.

  • To start the engines, you will need to follow the proper sequence of switches and levers on the overhead panel and throttle quadrant. You will also need to monitor your engine parameters on the EICAS (Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System).

  • To take off, you will need to set your flaps, trim, V-speeds, and thrust settings according to your weight and runway conditions. You will also need to use your rudder pedals to maintain directional control during takeoff roll.

  • To fly en route, you will need to use your autopilot and autothrottle modes according to your flight plan and ATC instructions. You will also need to manage your fuel consumption, cruise altitude, speed, and navigation.

  • To land, you will need to set up your approach in your FMC and tune your NAV radios to your destination airport. You will also need to configure your landing gear, flaps, spoilers, thrust reversers, and brakes according to your approach speed and runway length.
