Jet Simming 21st Century describes
and explains the use of civilian jet aircraft represented in home
flight-simulation programs. Microsoft Flight Simulator™ 2020 is
used because it is popular. Aviation principles and methods can be
applied to other aircraft in other simulators.
Aircraft specifications are provided as
appropriate and applicable. Comprehensive and detailed specifications
are outside the scope. Cross-country navigation and instrument
flights are described in other manuals.
This manual is for home flight
simulation only. It is based on real aviation principles and
procedures so home flight-simulation enthusiasts can maximize their
enjoyment. Because some aspects of home flight-simulation games are
not exactly like real-world aviation, some information in this book
is not exactly like real-world flight. Use for real-world aviation is
not appropriate or authorized.
Your Time Productively
Don’t lose valuable flight-simming
opportunities searching the internet for flimsy freebies. Most are
worth their cost. Ftldave says it best:
“YouTube is hit or miss. Sometimes there's great, informative
content, other times the videos are useless and unintelligible. How
much time do you want to spend searching for the former, how much
time to waste with the latter? As is often said about open software,
the same is true for this: It's free if your time has no value to
Flight simmers have trusted,
benefitted, and enjoyed my instructional books since 1997.
