"Bruce Williams takes Flight Simulator to its highest level as a flight training tool. This is a guide for anyone wanting to maximize their real or virtual cockpit experience..."
—Rod Machado, aviation author, flight instructor, speaker and official flight instructor for Microsoft's Flight Simulator

Microsoft(R) Flight Simulator has inspired many thousands of young "gamers" to pursue flight training in real life and has provided certificated pilots with countless hours of entertainment. And even though there is an awareness that PC-based simulations—and Microsoft Flight Simulator in particular—are helpful as aids in flight training and pilot proficiency, for many it is still unclear how best to benefit from the experience of virtual flying.

Applicable to both Flight Simulator 2004 and Version X, this new book merges the "virtual world" of flight simulation with "real life" flight training. It is the only book of its kind because it provides specific advice and tools for pilots, flight instructors, and students who want to use the world's most popular PC-based flight simulation as an effective, easy-to-use training aid.

Here's how Microsoft Flight Simulator as a Training Aid helps aviators get the most out of every hour in the air or the virtual skies:

  • Student Pilots can use the information in this book to enhance book-learning, review specific concepts and skills, and in preparing for formal flight instruction.
  • Certificated Pilots can complement real-world flying with additional hours in the virtual skies, upgrading flying skills and learning about advanced aircraft and procedures.
  • Flight Instructors will discover new ways to use Flight Simulator as a teaching tool in ground school classes and pre- and post-flight briefings.
  • Virtual Aviators (Flight Simulator hobbyists) will learn more about real-world flying and enhance their enjoyment of virtual flying.

Includes a bonus companion CD with more than 150 VFR and IFR Practice Flights that make it easy to use Microsoft Flight Simulator to practice specific skills, from basic flight maneuvers to instrument approaches. The CD also includes reference documents, charts, and other tools to transform virtual flying into an inexpensive, flexible, and effective learning environment. Softcover, 8.5" x 11", 256 pages.

"It's hard to argue against learning more efficiently, with less stress, and having more money left in the bank at checkride time. By letting Bruce become the flight training middle man through his enlightening book, you'll find efficient, novel and fun ways to learn about flying."
—Rod Machado, from the Foreword

I was disappointed, to say the least.

  • By Mark from Los Altos CA USA on Tuesday, February 02, 2010
  • Pros: Some practice navigation stuff you can use with FSX
  • Review: FSX has been dropped by Microsoft. Web links in the book now point to non-existent FSX web pages, which the author highly recommends to read as important supplemental information to go with what's in the book. Also, some of the book was written for FS9, before FSX was finalized, so the material seems dated.

Very informative and well worth the money!

  • By Fred Starr from Dallas, Texas on Sunday, January 17, 2010
  • Pros:
  • Review: (This book is NOT too expensive!!! Well, maybe it is for cheapskates!) Written for Flight Simulator 2004 (FS9) and FSX. Softcover, 245 pages with a companion CD! Very well written, concise and easy to understand. Plenty of helpful illustrations! The CD contains plenty of valuable written information, website links and 25+ pre-programed VFR practice flights and 100+ pre-programed IFR practice flights for FS2004 (the simulator I fly) plus pre-programed practice flights for FSX. (Just copy the files from the CD to your simulator's Flights file.) This book and companion CD is very well worth the money! I am going to recieve many valuable hours of educational enjoyment from this product!
