X-Plane Flight Simulator/Part One

X-Plane is a flight simulator, right? So the natural inclination is to fly it! Part One addresses what you need to know and do to fly using X-Plane. Remember: this book is about how to use X-Plane, not about teaching you real piloting skills.

  • Getting Started walks you through getting ready for your first flight from getting a copy of the program through installation and starting the program.
  • Basic Piloting starts with that all important first flight and follows up with things you need to know for VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight.
  • Advanced Piloting dives into instrument flight (IFR) and the communications system.
  • Basic Customizing covers easy things you can do to add to your X-Plane experience including adding aircraft, adding to the world environment, and tailoring the user interface.
