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.
