Watch your flight training program take off
You want to learn to fly. While there's no substitute for a qualified instructor and practice in a real airplane, PC-based simulations can help you develop the skills that build confidence. When you work through this book's scenario-based exercises using either X-Plane or Microsoft Flight Simulator, you'll be better prepared for certification as a private pilot with an instrument rating. You're also going to have a lot of fun.
Scenario-Based Training is an interactive, guided tour through the process of learning to think like a pilot.
With this book, you can
Learn from the FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS) approach to flight training
Explore official pilot handbooks and guides from top aviation training and safety experts
Perfect fundamental flying skills with real-world scenarios
Experience computer equipment and accessories that enhance PC-based flight simulations
Find out how to install, set up, and optimize X-Plane and FSX
Gain experience dealing with a wide variety of variables, including weather, terrain, airport environments, and equipment failures
Practice whenever you like
Attention flight instructors and virtual aviators
