Realistic flight simulations require proper handling of the aircraft from beginning to end. High-resolution sceneries and aircraft are helpful, but nothing enables realism better than correct performance.
Bill Stack’s Flight-Sim Maneuvers enables flight simmers to simulate exactly as real pilots fly their real airplanes from a thoroughly researched, carefully constructed and clearly written manual exclusively for home flight-simulation enthusiasts.
Readers learn all necessary skills for realistic simulations. Proper procedures and practices for all flight phases are thoroughly explained: taxiing, taking off, climbing out, cruising, descending, approaching and landing. Basic aircraft dynamics and use of aircraft controls are clearly explained. The book also shows how to fly a standard visual airport traffic pattern (also called a circuit), which entails most of the basic flight maneuvers in quick succession.
Numerous screen captures in full color and annotated are used throughout the book to describe and explain all the flight principles and practices used by real-world pilots.
Flight-Sim Maneuvers focuses real-world aviation knowledge on the needs of home flight-simulation enthusiasts. Although the book refers to stock aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator®, it is not limited to any particular aircraft. Flight knowledge gained from this book can be applied to most general-aviation and commercial aircraft with appropriate adaptation.
Independent product reviewer rate Bill Stack’s Flight-Sim Maneuvers highly with five stars and comments such as “I have never seen a better flight [manual] than this one.”
Like all TopSkills’ instructional books, Flight-Sim Maneuvers 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.
“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 and international flight-sim expert Bill Stack.
