    Jeff Van West is a certified flight instructor in both single and multi-engine aircraft and editor of the professional pilot magazine IFR. He has written training curricula for both computer simulation and general aviation programs.

    Kevin Lane-Cummings is a pilot, flight instructor, educator, and technical communication professional. He has worked for aerospace megacorporations, science museums, flight schools, public TV stations, and Internet publishers.

    Get ready to take flight as two certified flight instructors guide you through the pilot ratings as it is done in the real world, starting with Sport Pilot training, then Private Pilot, followed by the Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot, and Air Transport Pilot. They cover the skills of flight, how to master Flight Simulator, and how to use the software as a learning tool towards your pilot’s license. More advanced topics demonstrate how Flight Simulator X can be used as a continuing learning tool and how to simulate real-world emergencies.

    • get a clue from amazon!

      I ordered software and got a book about software, when I went to return it they charged me for shipping. Get a clue from Amazon, or lose customers. I will never order from overstock again, satisfaction is not guaranteed. I do $100s of business on line every month, 1 in 15 sales is incorrect and needs to be returned, real customer service takes into account the amount a customer will spend in the future before nickel and diming them for a single return. $2.98 shipping my $$$ I paid $$ to return a $20 purchase!

    • Flt Sim 10

      In spite of Flight Simulator no longer being supported by Microsoft I would still recommend buying the product if you are interested in flight simulation or real flight. The product has great lessons and resources that allow a new user to experience the characteristics of flight and it is a great tool for learning instrument flying. I have been a user of fllight simulator since its inception and enjoy using it regulary. There are many other sources for purchasing add-on aircatft, scenery, etc, and great forums for obtaining help, many of which involve support and advice from real-world pilots and flight simulation designers.
