New Book – Scenario-Based Training with Flight Simulator
Flight instructor, author, and aviation consultant Bruce Williams has just published a new book for pilots who want to make effective use of flight simulation in their training. It follows his previous book Microsoft Flight Simulator as a Training Aid and is intended for users of X-Plane and Microsoft Flight Simulator software. The book has 624 pages arranged in 68 chapters and is available in paperback or as a Kindle download.
Although PC-based flight simulations have been available for 30 years, many pilots, instructors, and flight schools don't understand how best to use these tools in real-world flight training. This book provides real-world situations by presenting hands-on, scenario-based exercises and training tips for the private pilot certificate and instrument rating based on FAA Industry Training Standards (FITS). It includes a guide to recommended websites and other sources as well as helpful charts and a glossary.
