Jet Simming eBook

​To enable flight simmers to maximize that enjoyment, flight-sim expert and author Bill Stack provides comprehensive and detailed instructions and information in his self-instructional book, Jet Simming.

Jet Simming explains typical civilian and commercial aircraft from business jets through small, medium and large commercial airliners. A separate chapter describes and explains simulations in turbine-powered propeller-driven aircraft, commonly referred to as “propjets.”

The book describes all aspects of civilian and commercial jet simulations from planning, through taking off, climbing out, cruising, approaching and landing.

Performance speeds (commonly known as “V Speeds”) for jets are described. 

Instruments, gauges and controls found in basic jet aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) are described and explained, including the use of autopilots for all flight phases. 

Tables and diagrams provide detailed data in organized and easy-to-grasp formats. Numerous images depict instrument panels, instruments, gauges and controls. Use of jet procedures and checklists are explained.

Pilot jobs and types of flights common in civilian and commercial jets are described so flight simmers can simulate realistically. 

Like all TopSkills’ instructional books, Jet Simming is designed and constructed for ease of use. It is organized into logical, numbered and titled chapters. Each page has a header with chapter number and name and page number.  The book is fully indexed so readers can find information easily and quickly. It is complete, detailed, independently verified for accuracy, and thoroughly edited and proofread for correctness. At 296 pages, Jet Simming is the largest of all Bill Stack’s flight-sim books.  

“My tutorial videos and instructional books are produced to enable my fellow flight simmers to enjoy realistic simulation as much as I do,” says author Bill Stack.
