    TopSkills Announces All New Flight-Sim Manual

    TopSkills announces February 4, 2022 as the release date for Bill Stack's newest e-book, Glass Simming 2020. At 225 pages and 11 chapters, the book will explain the use of electronic flight decks and cockpits in 15 aircraft.

    From this comprehensive manual, home flight simmers can learn real aviation skills for simulating their flights like true pilots: Making flight plans with departure and destination airports and enroute waypoints. Following their flight plans on the navigation maps. Finding information about airports, waypoints, and navaids in the aviation databases. Implementing official procedures at their flight-plan airports. And much more.

    In straightforward language, the book explains Primary Flight Displays, Multi-Function Displays, Navigation Displays, control panels, Flight Management Computers, and Control Display Units. Eleven chapters are dedicated to separate aircraft. Each explains what things are, what they do, and how to use them. Descriptions and explanations are supplemented by images taken directly from the flight decks and cockpits. Some images are annotated for additional clarity. A seven-page appendix defines more than 80 abbreviations and acronyms used in the book. It is based on real-world source material, and it has been thoroughly vetted, edited, and proofread.

    Glass Simming 2020 will be available in Portable Document Format (PDF) so that all flight simmers anywhere can use it effortlessly.

    The FlightSim.Com Store is taking sharply discounted advance orders toward the February 4 release date.

      This can all be found for free on You Tube.

      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 you.

      I found the TopSkills line of books to be of value when I was learning about flight sim, a beginner. Though the content was too often repetitive - how many times can you put in disclaimers about not-for-real-flying? That said, I'm glad I added many of their titles to my library.

    In some aircraft (King air 350) the power supply, GPS and therefore also the autopilot fail. Rebooting helps for a while. Then everything is black...
