As you may imagine, navigating an aircraft is one of the most challenging aspects of the simulation process - it can be OK just trying to fly the aircraft as you need, but how are you supposed to navigate freely and without any problems? What solutions can exist for you to consider?

With this excellent eBook by Bill Stack of Top Skills, you can start to really take command of your flight simulation experience and start to learn the most vital skills needed to fly your aircraft accordingly. To do this, you need to just consider the importance of learning the following;

  • Prepare yourself to read official aviation charts as well as help yourself find the right path forward, using these official charts to become a more rounded pilot and to better understand what is needed to fly properly.

  • Learn how a real pilot would plan for cross country flights so that you can follow the same professional protocols, helping you make the flight as smooth and as comfortable as it possibly can be along the way, regardless of what you are engaging with.

  • Understand how to compensate for various situations such as wind strength so that original plans can be adjusted to maintain your direction and to make sure you arrive at your destination without going off course in any fashion.

  • Learn how to use the same skyways that other, real commercial pilots are using to make sure you can easily stay on track and understand how to best look after yourself properly. This will ensure you stay on track and never put yourself under any kind of traditional danger.
