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.
Flight Training Editor Ian J. Twombly joined AOPA in 2003 and is an instrument flight instructor.
Pilot Training and Certification,
Time is running out for potential tailwheel pilots to bid on a package of tailwheel training at Lakeland, Florida-based Tailwheels Etc.—including two hours in a 1940 Stearman Kaydet biplane—in this year’s AOPA Foundation online auction.
A refurbished Cessna 172N that will offer more cost-effective flight training is at the heart of the Cessna 172LITE project, announced Dec. 17 by Sporty’s.
Many student pilots are nervous come checkride day. When you’re a top official at the agency responsible for the safe operation of the largest airspace system in the world, it can add to the pressure.
