Sporty’s Pilot Shop recently released a training syllabus aimed at home users. The syllabus seeks to guide students through the process of using Microsoft Flight Simulator at home as a training tool.
They syllabus includes 15 lesson plans, each with suggested maneuvers, completion standards, and study resources. Also included is a scenario disc that supports Microsoft Flight Simulator X. The disc allows users to set up the lessons faster and easier.
The guide also includes tips on how to configure Flight Sim X for the best realism. Both the guide and disc integrate into Sporty’s complete flight training kit.
The Sporty’s Flight Simulator Training Guide is $34.95. For those who don’t yet have Microsoft Flight Sim X, it can be purchased for $39.95.

Pilot Training and Certification,
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has awarded its third annual Flight Training Excellence Awards to top flight schools and flight instructors ranked by more than 3,600 flight students who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience through an AOPA online poll.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
The AOPA Medical Advisory Board is the latest group to urge quick action on the proposed FAA rule that would allow thousands more pilots to fly without the need for a third class medical certificate.
