    Certainly a nice addition to MS FS. Provides deeper understanding of available features and resources within FS.

    The book is good about telling you what you can learn from using flight simulator. It does seem to focus on the flight instructor side. I haven’t flown the practice missions yet, so I can’t comment on those.

    The first few chapters offer more background then actual gaming tips. I would have liked to see more material on flying commercial airliners on flight simulator. This book concentrates on small planes.
