Use Your Time Wisely

Don’t lose valuable flight-simming opportunities by searching the internet for flimsy freebies. Most freebies are worth their cost. Ftldave says it best:

“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, and 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.”

Satisfaction Guaranteed

A lot of time and effort has been invested by me and others toward making a quality product that is useful to people. Any book with physical defects will be replaced at no cost. If you can show that the content of Glass Simming 2020 is not as described, your money will be refunded. If you find facts that you believe are in error, please let me know so I can evaluate them. – Bill Stack, Author

Looks good, Just what I need. All of Bill Stack books are very good. I have some others of his. I hope one day soon he will put out one book on how to map the controls for the AUTOPILOT on the Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant. Step by Step. The video on youtube is to quick to follow. I have contacted the Editor, Derek Davis of the PCPilot magazine about it. But a book would be nice from Bill. I have been into Flight sim since 2006. was in the F.S.U.Group-UK and in the Bristol group a short time. I am from Weston-S-M, but back in New Zealand now. It is a good hobby if you won't to fly as a Pilot.

best regards David

I have only just downloaded this book but so far it looks good. I need the various items explained and illustrated clearly. I expect by the time I finish the book, I will be more competent in the cockpit.

One complaint is the book seems to be available only in PDF format. The industry standard for publishing eBooks is the EPUB format and that would be so much better to read in my eReader.
