This eBook provides an in-depth understanding of six popular jet aircraft with dedicated chapters. Follow step-by-step procedures, acquaint yourself with flight decks, and understand your jet’s physical and performance characteristics. Master all flight phases, from pushing back to shutting down, in a professional manner.

Use Flight Management Systems

Learn to create and file complete flight plans, enter communication and navigation frequencies, read relevant aircraft and flight data, and add departure and approach procedures. Harness the power of vertical speed, VNAV (Vertical Navigation), and FLC (Flight Level Change) while letting the FMS (Flight Management System) guide your flight.

Book Specifications

Jet Simming 21st Century, V2 comes in a universal PDF format, suitable for all home flight simmers. The book spans 340 pages, providing comprehensive and detailed insights into flight simulation. The zipped archive file, easy to download, is a compact 6 megabytes.

Additional Bonuses

Focus and Scope

The book mainly delves into the use of civilian jet aircraft represented in home flight-simulation programs, predominantly using Microsoft Flight Simulator™ 2020 due to its popularity. However, the aviation principles and methods presented can be broadly applied to other aircraft in different simulators. While providing essential aircraft specifications, the book is focused on flight simulation and does not attempt to be a comprehensive aircraft technical manual. Cross-country navigation and instrument flights are covered in other manuals.


This manual is designed for home flight simulation exclusively. Although based on real aviation principles and procedures, the aim is to maximize the enjoyment and educational value for home flight-simulation enthusiasts. Because of the differences between home flight-simulation games and real-world aviation, some information in this book is not identical to real-world flight. Use for real-world aviation is not recommended or authorized.

Use Your Time Productively

Don’t lose valuable flight simming opportunities by searching the internet for flimsy freebies. Most 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, 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.”

Flight simmers have trusted, benefitted, and enjoyed my instructional books since 1997.

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 Jet Simming 21st Century 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
