The tutorial will show you how to use GPS to follow published instrument approaches, including how to select, load, and activate them. You will also learn how to choose your position points, see your approach on the GPS screen and follow your approach by GPS.

Once you have mastered these lessons and tips, the advantages of GPS navigation will become immediately apparent. For example, the GPS shows the selected approach path and data, and you will be able to access detailed information about your approach. And you can either allow the GPS and autopilot to follow the approach, or you can take over manually.

You can use GPS for IAP in the following MSFS aircraft

  • Cessna 172 Skyhawk
  • DA40 TDI
  • DV20
  • Robin CAP 10
  • G1000

Although this tutorial is not for use in real-world aviation, it is perfect for home flight simulation. The video itself has been professionally put together, with clear audio quality and concise, easy-to-understand delivery.

The information has been well researched and is of high quality and reliable. It has also been independently verified for accuracy. A transcript of the entire video is also included, as is a V-speed card.

Bill Stack has over 30 years of experience in professional training, as well as an extensive background in home flight simulation.

Relevancy Statement

My flight-sim videos and books are only for home flight-simulation computer games. They are based on real aviation laws, regulations, and procedures so home flight-simulation enthusiasts can maximize their enjoyment. Because some aspects of home flight-simulation games are not exactly like real-world aviation, some information in my videos and books is not exactly like real-world flight. That is why these videos and books are not intended for and should not be used for real-world flight or lessons. We accept no liability for any misuse of these flight-simulation videos and books! – Bill Stack
