Microsoft Flight Simulator As A Training Aid
Pilots looking to get extra sim time in without paying the big bucks might be overlooking a useful tool they may already have at home. For years, Microsoft Flight Simulator has been delivering to pilots and non-pilots alike the realism of life in the air, providing users with a great opportunity to hone their flying skills in a fun, risk-free environment. This e-book, written by Bruce Williams, helps pilots get the most out of that experience to ensure the skills they learn at home translate to the cockpit.
The book provides a plethora of both VFR and IFR practice flights that users can download, along with specific guidance and tips on how to fly them to cement proper airmanshipment to memory. The book also incorporates charts, reference documents and other materials to flesh out a student’s understanding of a given flight and mimic a real-world scenario.
The book, which is available for $22.50, applies to Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 as well as Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
