Instructions supplied with flight-simulation programs skim the surface of what a flight-sim pilot needs to know. Go deeper than the superficial and get the knowledge that real-world pilots have as applies to flight simming.

LEARN ABOUT TRULY REALISTIC FLIGHT SIMMING
Make your simulated flights as realistic as possible by following the same methods real airline, military and general-aviation pilots follow. Your Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual explains it all in one compact book.
Understanding Pilot Certifications and Ratings
Every real-world pilot must have a certification and a rating to fly an airplane. Do you know which rating a real-world pilot would need for the type of flight simming you like to do? Do you know what knowledge a real-world pilot must demonstrate to get that rating? Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual explains it concisely.
Knowing About Airports
Airports are much simpler and easier when you know how they are laid out, what their parts are called and what you do in certain areas. Can you imagine a pilot knowing how to fly around the skies but not knowing how to use an airport? It's a silly thought, isn't it? But flight-simulation program manuals overlook this fundamental aspect of aviation. That's why Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual devotes an entire chapter to airports. You will learn every major part of typical airports and their runways, including correct names, so you can use them as real pilots use real airports.
Knowing About Airport Markings, Signs, and Lights
This all-new chapter tells about numerous markings, signs, and lights that guide pilots around their airports. Which taxiway are you on? Which taxiway do you need to follow to get to your runway. Which runway is that ahead of you? It's all explained clearly with easy-to-follow diagrams and explanatory text right next to them. Nothing can be easier than this!
Distinguishing Airspaces From One Another
You will learn how airspaces are sectioned according to traffic type and volume. You will also learn where pilots are allowed to fly, are restricted and are prohibited. And you will learn the rules and procedures used in these airspaces. These airspaces and airways are fully described and depicted for you so you can fly as realistically as possible.
Understanding the World of Air Traffic Control
Most air traffic is conducted in controlled airspaces, so for the most realistic flight simulation, you need to know something about air traffic control. From Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual, you will learn about flight service stations, airport control towers, ground control, departure and approach control, air route traffic centers, automated aviation information services and other ATC services.
Knowing About Pilot Weather Services
Today's flight-sim programs are getting better and better about simulating weather realistically. Do you know where real-world pilots get their weather information? Do you know what weather information real-world pilots are required to have? And do you know the flight-sim equivalent of real-world aviation weather services? Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual explains it all.
Flying According to Official Flight Rules
Flight rules enable pilots to fly as simply as possible when weather is clear and when it obscured. From Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual, you will learn the same rules that real world pilots use when flying visually and/or on instruments.
Knowing What Aviation Lights Are Telling You
Learn what airports, runway approaches, obstructions and aircraft are communicating from this all new chapter of Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual.
Understanding Official Aviation Abbreviations
Aviation is overwhelmed with abbreviations and acronyms. Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual explains the major aviation abbreviations and acronyms relevant to flight simulation so you will know what real-world pilots are talking about.
Converting With Flight-Sim Formulas
Aviation and flight simulation use many formulas for converting various measurements from one method to another. Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual explains the formulas for converting British Imperial to Metric and vice versa. You will learn the accurate formulas for converting altitude, distance, speed, temperature, pressure and other important aviation measurements.
Finding Information Through an Index
A complete index helps you find information quickly so you can use Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual as a handy reference manual right at your computer. Many official aviation manuals lack this important tool.
Find Needed Information Quickly and Easily
Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual is organised and laid out for your easiest use. Information is divided into relevant chapters, and chapters are organised into easy-to-follow sections. Headings and captions help you find information quickly. It's fully indexed for quick reference.
Clearly Written and Easy to Use
Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual is written by expert flight simmers and professional aviators, then published by an experienced training enterprise to help you learn by reading and doing. Policies, procedures and practices used by professional real-world pilots are explained in straight-forward, easy-to-follow English. Visual aids help you grasp the principles, and easy-to-follow exercises help you apply the concepts and methods for experience and learning.
Grasp and Remember Concepts Quickly and Easily
Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual has plenty of orderly graphical aids so you can grasp aviation concepts right away and remember them indefinitely.
For All Flight Simmers
The flight principles, procedures and practices explained in Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual apply to all aircraft -- general aviation, commercial or military -- as well as all flight-sim games. It's comparable to flight training manuals that apply to all aircraft, including the popular and special ones. We can't write one book that explains every specific aircraft, and we can't write a separate book for each airplane, either. So we explain the most common general-aviation aircraft in this book, and readers can easily adapt our explanations to the specific aircraft they're flying.
Whether you are in Africa, Asia, the Americas, Australia, Europe or the Pacific Rim, Flight Sim Pilot's Information Manual is for you. It is based on real aviation rules, principles, procedures and practices that general-aviation pilots use around the world.
For PC Flight Simulation Exclusively
Flight-Sim Pilot's Information Manual is written exclusively for flight-simulation pilots. It's based on real aviation textbooks and manuals -- with the relevant material emphasized and the irrelevant material omitted. You will not need to flip through pages and pages of technical aviation texts, because that work has been done for you. You won't have to skip over irrelevant materials, because they have been omitted for you.
