Microsoft Flight Simulator X For Pilots: Real World Training

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.

These 750 pages are packed with detailed information on using Flight Simulator X for training, including:

  • Introduction to flight operations
  • The fundamentals of aircraft control and flight
  • Performance takeoffs and landings
  • Airport operations and working with air traffic control
  • Radio navigation with traditional avionics and glass-cockpit technology
  • Instrument approaches, including the use of GPS and glass-cockpits
  • Commercial flight maneuvers
  • Emergency situations you can safely experience only in a simulator
  • Piloting high-performance aircraft and jets
  • Using multiplayer and shared cockpits for realistic air traffic control and training
  • and more...

by Neil from Mollusk VA USA 
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
by A Customer from ALABAMA USA 

Pros: Graphics, versatility, airport library
Cons: Helo cockpits need IFR capability & software needs voice transmit capability
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).
