Fly toward pilot certification with these real-world scenario exercises

Although PC-based flight simulations have been available for 30 years, many pilots, instructors, and flight schools don't understand how best to use these tools in real-world flight training and pilot proficiency programs. This invaluable reference bridges the gap between simulation tools and real-world situations by presenting hands-on, scenario-based exercises and training tips for the private pilot certificate and instrument rating. As the first of its kind based on FAA-Industry Training Standards (FITS), this book steers its focus on a scenario-based curriculum that emphasizes real-world situations.

Experienced pilot and author Bruce Williams ultimately aims to engage the pilot, reinforce the "realistic" selling point of PC-based flight simulations, while also complementing the FAA-approved FITS syllabi.

  • Serves as essential reading for pilots who want to make effective use of simulation in their training while expanding their skill level and enjoyment of flying
  • Covers private pilot real-world scenarios and instrument rating scenarios
  • Includes a guide to recommended websites and other resources
  • Features helpful charts as well as a glossary

You'll take off towards pilot certification with this invaluable book by your side.

Bruce Williams owns BruceAir, LLC, an aviation consulting, training, and pilot services company. A certified flight instructor and FAASTeam representative, he has been a pilot since the early 1970s. During his 15-year career at Microsoft, he worked on six versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator.Follow the authorís blog at http://bruceair.wordpress.com/ or find out more about the book from the authorís website at http://www.bruceair.com/SBT/sbt-wiley.htm
