DescriptionDash 8-300 Professional is an add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002. The Dash is a twin-engined commuter aircraft made by Bombardier (DeHavilland Canada).

The Active Cockpit displays instrument labels and readings when the player's mouse hovers over them.
Also included are three enhanced airports:
- London City (England),
- Frankfurt (Germany), and
- Amsterdam Schiphol (The Netherlands)
- Panel Config: which allows the player to modify the cockpit panel.
- Load Edit: which allows the player to set different loads for the aircraft, for example adjusting the number of passengers and the amount of baggage they carry.
- Virtual Cockpit Switcher: Switches the cockpit mode between Active and Static. Players using Windows 98 are advised to use the static mode

- Part 2 of the flight manual contains 16 pages of charts and tables such as the pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight checklists, climb rates for one & two engines etc.
- Part 3 of the flight manual is a 67-page document covering the pilot's flight panel and its instrumentation.
