Fly toward pilot certification with these real-world scenario exercises 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 and pilot proficiency programs. This invaluable reference bridges the gap between simulation tools and real-world situations by presenting hands-on, scenario-based exercises and training tips for the private pilot certificate and instrument rating. As the first of its kind based on FAA-Industry Training Standards (FITS), this book steers its focus on a scenario-based curriculum that emphasizes real-world situations. Experienced pilot and author Bruce Williams ultimately aims to engage the pilot, reinforce the "realistic" selling point of PC-based flight simulations, while also complementing the FAA-approved FITS syllabi. Serves as essential reading for pilots who want to make effective use of simulation in their training while expanding their skill level and enjoyment of flying Covers private pilot real-world scenarios and instrument rating scenarios Includes a guide to recommended websites and other resources Features helpful charts as well as a glossary You'll take off towards pilot certification with this invaluable book by your side.

Today, pilots are faced with a new and challenging era of glass cockpit general aviation aircraft, innovative aircraft design, advances in avionics technology, and changes to instrument procedures and airspace. Students are more technically savvy. Therefore with time/money always at a minimum, a demand exists for highly skilled flight instructors who know the best teaching methods for flying IFR. Teaching Confidence in the Clouds offers real-life application of computer desktop flight simulators and flight training devices (PCATDs and Basic ATDs) as they relate to current methods of instrument training. Since they were first adopted in 1997, FAA-approved desktop flight simulators have been an effective means to train students. The scenario-based training concepts, training assignments, and instructor tips included in this book will be a valuable resource for any pilot currently taking instrument training, instrument pilots that want to improve their skills, or for flight instructors wanting to help their students reduce the number of hours needed to complete an instrument training program.

Bruce williams takes Microsoft Flight Simulator to its highest level as a flight training tool. Applicable to both Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight (Version 9) and Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Version 10), this is a guide for anyone who wants to maximize their real or virtual cockpit experience while learning more efficiently with less stress, and having more money left in the bank at checkride time. This book and accompanying CD provide general suggestions, specific advice, and practical tools for making effective use of Microsoft Flight Simulator, regardless of the type of flying you do--students, certificated pilots, flight instructors, and virtual aviators will all benefit from Bruce's teaching. This book merges the two worlds of flight simulation (gaming) with flight training--the only book of its kind on how to use the world's most popular flight simulator as a true aid to becoming a pilot or teaching flight. Practice doesn't necessarily make skills perfect, but it can make them permanent.The weighty assortment of practice flights included, and the guidance on how to best fly them, make it easy for any pilot or instructor--real or virtual--to attain the highest level of flight proficiency they seek. Although many pilots and instructors have used Microsoft Flight Simulator during their flying careers and may have been inspired to pursue flight training by their early encounters with the program, often they don't know how to get the most out of the experience of virtual flying today. This book will change that. Visit www.bruceair.com for more information and links to make sure your time spent with Microsoft Flight Simulator is fun and educational. Includes a bonus companion CD with more than 150 VFR and IFR Practice Flights that make it easy to use Microsoft Flight Simulator to practice specific skills, from basic flight maneuvers to instrument approaches. The CD also includes reference documents, charts, and other tools to transform virtual flying into an inexpensive, flexible, and effective learning environment.

---AMAZON MARKETPLACE: PAY MORE, WAIT LONGER AND GET A USED BOOK!--- In 1993, when Microsoft began using the tag 'as real as it gets' on its flight simulators it was with a degree of artistic licence. Twenty years on, Microsoft has left the party but its legacy remains in Flight Simulator X and its cousin Prepare3D, developed by Lockheed Martin. But while display technology and sophisticated flight controls make suspension of disbelief ever easier, a wall remains between the bedroom aviator and his virtual cockpit; nothing intrudes more than having to reach for the mouse to flip the switches.In the quest for true hardware control of their cockpits flight-sim enthusiasts walk an uneasy line between eye-wateringly expensive professional solutions and too-generic consumer units. The alternative is D.I.Y. This guide takes you end-to-end through - and beyond - the construction of scratch-built panels to control the FSX GPS and autopilot with no mouse or keyboard required. Using no more than basic DIY tools and a modicum of patience you can build professional-quality panels to navigate your default or payware aircraft on the GPS500 GPS or, for the more ambitious, on payware systems from Mindstar or Reality-XP. You can build a generic autopilot based on the Bendix King KFC 225 to hook into most of your default General Aviation aircraft and many payware add-ons.Based on the experience of developing a scratch-built cockpit from the ground up, this guide features step-by-step instructions, many photographs and invaluable background information that will help you make your cockpit as real as it gets.
