by Jeff Van West, Kevin Lane-Cummings

Strap in and ride along as certified flight instructors Kevin Lane-Cummings and Jeff Van West raise the landing gear on this guide to using Microsoft Flight Simulator X. This book takes you through the pilot ratings as it is done in the real world: You start with Sport Pilot training, then Private Pilot, followed by the Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot, and Air Transport Pilot.

Aspiring pilots will learn the skills of flight, how to master Flight Simulator, and how to utilize the software as a learning tool towards their pilot’s licenses. Those who already have their real-world wings will benefit from guidance on how Flight Simulator X can be used as a continuing learning tool, how to simulate real-world emergencies, and how to use it for training towards advanced certifications.

And those who favor simulation to real-world flying will find tips for making their sim experience as real as possible.

  • Introduction to flight operations
  • The fundamentals of aircraft control and flight

  • Pros:
  • Review: Comprehensive. Well written, it provides a solid basis for ondytucyion in real flight as well a FSX. Unfortunately, the links to their website and its examples are now defunct. Otherwise this would 5 star.

Good product -- 2 enhancements recommended

  • Pros: Graphics, versatility, airport library
  • Review: Overall I'm very pleased with Flight Sim X and highly recommend this program for helicopter pilots. Great graphics and sounds. Recommend 2 enhancements: 1) incorporate voice technology to permit pilots to talk to ATC via headset, and 2) incorporate IFR capability into helicopter cockpits (and please add R44 to library).
