    good information but was unable to download the tutorial flights into Flight Simulator X thus greatly limiting the advantages of this book. Jef Van West infored there are technical problems with some systems but I think the poroblem is more general than that.

    I’m sure this would help more advanced pilots especially for instrument. Maybe I should have noticed this was the book and not the actual sim program. That’ll teach me for rushing a purchase.

    This is a well written book on flight instruction and general flight operation. It is not a book written about how to use flight sim x. The book references a web site to down load videos and instruction. I was unable to access the site. I thought the reference guide was on how set up the flight sim.

    I started out going through the book and doing the procedures, but I got bored of going back and forth between the book and flying. I want to fly not read every aspect of flight. Isn’t there a way to incorporate these lessons directly into the sim real-time? Anyway, if you are willing to read a lot then fly a little, then read a lot more, then fly a little bit more, in baby steps. I guess you will enjoy this book. For those who don’t have patience, like myself, it will take a lot more effort to get through this book.

    The page designs for this book appear to have been intended for printing in full color. There was liberal use of spot color and much use of full color screen caps in the design; but as the book is printed with only black ink, the illustrations and other graphic elements are lacking in contrast–like printing a color negative on b&w photo paper. The title should have gone through a redesign to optimize it for one-color printing. While it’s still legible, the effect makes me feel like I missed out on something.
