    TopSkills - Flight Planning With MSFS Video

    Learn to Plan Flights in Microsoft Flight Simulator®

    Plan VFR and IFR flights in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator® 2020. Version 1.0 is an all-new video based on Microsoft’s newest simulation program.

    Flight plans are required for all IFR flights and recommended for all VFR flights. In MSFS 2020, the GPS unit displays VFR and IFR flight plans, and air traffic control uses flight plans to vector IFR flights. Flight plans help VFR pilots reach their destinations timely and accurately.

      So 12 minutes for 9 bucks. Doesn't seem right. I can watch same subj on YouTube for free. What do you get here for 9 bucks that you don't get for free.

      If it's professionally done and useful which, based on the trailer, seems to be the case, that's not a lot of money for something that required a lot of work. On YT, as in most things in life, you get what you pay for.

    Does anyone know where this file is? Or does the Standard 172 use the same file as the glass panel 172?
