For many flight simulation users, getting to grips with the basics is usually the hardest part. With so much to think about and consider when flying a virtual aircraft, it can be excessively challenging to make sure it all falls into place in the right way; indeed, it can be nearly impossible to manage without many hours of experimentation and learning. That being said, a huge number of people today tend to benefit hugely from the inclusion and introduction of tutorial videos, and these selections from Top Skills make it easier than ever to maximize your performance in general.

Navigation when using a GPS is a hugely challenging process if you are not used to doing so, and this guide will help you learn how to manage the process from start to finish. This package has been put together by Bill Stack, a revered name within flight sim tutorials, to ensure that you have access to all the information that you need complete with graphical animations and other fine extras. It clearly explains how to use the Garmin 500 GPS system in a Microsoft Flight Simulator environment, as well las ensuring that you can use the techniques learned here with various other GPS devices.

This may sound simple but it can be the undoing of many talented pilots, and should be something that you pay particular attention to as it can really help you stay in control when flying.

Add in the fact that you’ll be taught how to deal with more advanced features such as accessing flight analytics to ensure you are on trick, you should have no problems in getting total control of your flight when you use this video to show you the changes involved.

  • Get to grips with viewing local terrain as you fly over when you are using GPS navigation to ensure that you clearly know what you will be coming up against when you are flying. This removes the challenge that is usually associated with flight simulation in that you’ll now have a clear idea of what lies ahead for you.

  • Master flying with your GPS system when you only have an airport to try and reach, as thanks to the use of waypoints you can keep the flight clearly in the right direction and more likely to reach your destination

Navigating with GPS can make your flight experiences all the more realistic and now, it's easy to learn how. With the Navigating With GPS tutorial video, written by Bill Stack, you will learn how to use the Garmin 500 GPS (Global Positioning System). A lot of the skills and techniques you will pick up are transferable to other GPS devices, so this is a great starting point even if you use a different model.

While everything in this video is collated from reliable sources, personal experience and real world use of the Garmin 500, it is important to remember that this self learning video is exclusively for home flight-simming. Although designed to be as accurate and authentic as it can be, there are still differences between simulated and real world GPS; in no way should the lessons learned in this video be applied to real world aviation.

You will learn how to view significant data related to your current course and way point, all the while becoming comfortable using the various knobs and hard keys located around the main display, as well as understanding their functions. The video also covers topics such as viewing flight plans in tabular format, finding nearby airports and navigation aids and making your autopilot use GPS to guide your aircraft along your planned route.

Navigating With GPS has been deliberately designed and carefully pieced together to be the ideal tool for self learning. Each topic has its own distinct display to keep things clear and organized, with each key concept having an animated highlight to help it stand out. All narration is scripted and clearly spoken so that you can retain more information from a single viewing and not waste any time. Playable on major video players, as well as any others with support for .WMV files.

With just a single viewing of this remarkable tutorial video, you will already have a greater understanding of GPS's in general and feel more qualified to use them in your future flights. With a bit of practice, you will easily be able to take in everything that this video has to offer and know everything there is to know about navigating with GPS.
