Having the Right Attitude
Although doing whatever we want is possible and popular in home flight simulations, it is not realistic. Learn about having the right basic attitudes for realistic home simulations.
Understanding General Flight Rules
General flight rules apply tall visual and instrument flights – not exclusively tone or the other. Learn about aircraft worthiness, pilot in command, flight knowledge, safe operations, altimeter settings, and pilot condition.
Understanding Visual Flight Rules
Learn about the three conditions that allow visual flight rules, instruments required for visual flights, whether to use or not use a VFR flight plan, designated altitudes for visual flights, and Air Traffic Control coordination.
Understanding Instrument Flight Rules
Learn the three conditions that mandate instrument flight rules, pilot and aircraft and instrument requirements, flight-plan requirements, Air Traffic Control communications, designated altitudes, official aviation charts, and basic IFR procedures.

Learn From a Comprehensive Tutorial Video
My video and my accompanying supplementary tables describe what you need to know for the most realistic home flight simulations. All its information is tested and verified for accuracy. You don’t need to waste your flight-simming time searching the Internet for amateurish, incomplete, and inaccurate free information.
Focus and Limits
- Explains general, visual, and instrument flight rules
- Applies tall civilian aircraft and home flight simulators
- Can be applied to combat and multi-player simulations
- Numbered for quick and easy reference
- For home flight simulation only
- Not made for real-world aviation
Facts described in this tutorial video are based on general, visual, and instrument flight rules from the United States Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) aviation regulations. They are condensed for use in home flight simulations. The term “general flight rules” is mine to distinguish those that apply equally to visual and instrument flights rather than one or the other exclusively.

Free V-Speed Card Included
Your free V-speed card lists the most common general-aviation V-speeds in two easy-to-find ways – alphabetically on one side and by velocity on the other side. Each V-speed is identified by name and abbreviation and explained in clear language. The cards are a handy size for using right at your flight simulator. They apply generally tall aircraft, not to any aircraft in particular.
Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed
A lot of time and effort has been invested toward making quality products that are useful to people. Any books or videos with manufacturing defects will be replaced at no cost. If you can show that the content of these books or videos is not as described, your money will be refunded. If you find facts that you believe are in error, please let me know so I can evaluate them. – Bill Stack
My flight-sim videos and books are only for home flight-simulation computer games. They are based on real aviation laws, regulations, 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 my videos and books is not exactly like real-world flight. That is why these videos and books are not intended for and should not be used for real-world flight or lessons. We accept no liability for any misuse of these flight-simulation videos and books! – Bill Stack
