Do you want to take flight lessons someday? Are you trying to use your home flight simulator to learn more about real aviation? Do you simply want to be a better sim pilot? I recommend you download a copy of the Airplane Flying Handbook 2016 pdf.
Don’t Sabotage Your Training
Many people buy flight sim software and just assume they will learn by trial and error. I do not recommend doing this because of the real danger of developing bad habits. The bad habits you learn in the sim will follow you to the real cockpit. In addition, you need to learn why pilots do the things they do, not just what they do. The Airplane Flying Handbook 2016 pdf is an important tool to help you build a fundamental understanding of flying and the national airspace system. The book includes an overview of flight training, maneuvers, night operations, emergency procedures, takeoffs and landings, and more.
On the other hand, maybe you just want to fly airliners in your DIY Airliner Keyboard Mod. Well, check out Chapter 12, 14, and 15 of the Airplane Flying Handbook 2016 pdf. That’s where you will find important information about multiengine airplanes, turboprop airplanes, and jet airplanes.
