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.

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.
