Appearances, audios, and pacing have been sharpened. Some new information has been added, and other information has been clarified. These changes improve the self-learning features of these popular tutorials and manuals from TopSkills.

In this excellent package, you will be provided with an excellent 30:05 minute video that does everything it can to easily explain the way forward for your management of autopilot flying.

Whilst it might sound easy because it's an automated piloting system, the actual control and management of the system can be harder than flying an aircraft itself if you are unsure of what you are doing!

With the help of this addition, you can learn how to autopilot professionally.

Fly With Autopilot

  • Whilst flying with autopilot may sound easy, the reality is massively different. This package, though, explains the entire concept in clear and obvious detail to ensure that you will learn how to let the autopilot do the work whilst you relax and get to enjoy the actual flight itself!

  • Thanks to the huge attention to detail included throughout, you will learn how to manage situations such as arranging and setting your desired heading, vertical speed and altitude to maximize your chances of being able to reach your target without having to stop or slow down along the way!

  • Give yourself the capacity to follow flight plans and to ensure that you can easily do the right path forward, making sure you can easily arrange and create these vital systems to ensure you can get from A to B with the absolute minimum of fuss and with no deviations or problems.

  • Climb, cruise, descent, and approach will all be explained in intricate detail so that you can be sure you are always in the right position in the skies to succeed.

  • Use your GPS system to keep track of where you are going and to make sure your system is going to the right location - the GPS is a vital part of autopilot, so mastering this is key.

  • Get used to using the auto-throttle feature and the flight director to keep yourself on-track and to minimize the risk of you missing your location or putting yourself in the wrong position when flying.

  • Get to grips with all of the various knobs, switches, and data read-out sections that exist when you are flying, ensuring you can minimize the amount of work that you have to put in whilst guaranteeing you can easily manage the cockpit should anything more challenging pop up when flying

  • Get used to using the multiple keyboard shortcuts that are installed into flight simulators, reducing the amount of time that you can spend dealing with various tasks and also making it much easier to manage autopilot with the minimal input needed from yourself, making flying with autopilot on much simpler.

Use Any Form of Autopilot

With this package, you will be shown how to use not just one kind of autopilot, but any kind of autopilot system. Whilst they tend to have minimal differences the general idea and philosophy remain the same and for that reason, it makes sense to stick with this form of autopilot as you move forward. Indeed, with the help of this system, you can easily make a transition from using autopilot on any model that you hop into the cockpit of. This will ensure you can, at the very least, manage to fly the autopilot system of the following aircraft;

  • Airbus A321
  • Beechcraft Baron and King Air
  • Boeing 737 and 747
  • Bombardier Learjet 45 and CRJ-700
  • Cessna 172 and Grand Caravan
  • Douglas DC-3
  • Grumman Goose
  • Maule M7
  • Mooney Bravo

By giving you this clear and easy detail, this mod makes it nice and simple for pilots to take off and to enjoy themselves in the skies without having to push the boundaries too much. Autopilot can be confusing at the best of times, so being able to control it and make sure it does the work that you wanted in the first place is very important.

Within this package, you'll be shown exactly how to do this, as you pick up all of the most important and efficient designs possible to make sure the whole thing can be used effectively.

When flying around in the models above you should feel completely at home optimizing, managing, and preparing the flight simulation itself to ensure it fits exactly with the plans that you wanted.

Everything shown throughout has been built upon the real-life workings of an autopilot system, meaning that you learning within a simulator but will be finding out solutions that will follow the same principles as reality.

Take the Advantage

One of the most important aspects of flying an aircraft in a simulator these days is being able to actually get the feeling and the style of what a real pilot would go through. Unfortunately, a lot of the time this can be diminished by the lack of training and the disadvantage a normal person is in comparison to a real pilot. With this guide, though, you will get to enjoy the excellent privilege of the real-life training and gaining the precision that a genuine pilot would get. This ensures you'll have all the information you need to start flying in comfort and confidence.

Taking the time to do this will improve your overall flight control and composition, as well as help you get used to the "boredom" that can set in whilst autopilot commences and takes you on cross-country flights, will ensure you can follow the right path as you fly forward, changing the landscape entirely.

This will ensure that you have much greater accuracy when navigating your aircraft, always helping you stay on course and to ensure that you can reach your target destination wit enough resources and supplies left over. Thanks to this video guide you'll also learn how to approach and land correctly, ensuring you never need to miss out on the most important steps.
