This is not a bad book and the keyboard cover is very good. The book however does not explain in detail the flight procedures of the big aircraft such as 747 and concorde.

5.0 out of 5 stars This guide comes with a huge bonus ! 22 Feb 2000
By Joelle Vander Aa - Published on Amazon.com
While I really did appreciate the very valuable and well organized information offered by the book, I was very nicely surprised to see that the book came with a Keyboard Cover. This tool is pretty amazing in the sense that, besides being very attractive, it simply eliminates the task of remembering the huge number of key shortcuts ! Brilliant addition to the book which deserves 3 1/2 stars on its own.....but together, this combination deserves 5 stars.
I just don't understand why Amazon doesn't mention the inclusion of the Keyboard Cover ? It would have made my decision process much easier.

4.0 out of 5 stars O.K. for propeller planes , improvable on the comercial jets 14 July 2000
By "tiagof" - Published on Amazon.com
Think of this as a very good book, that really covers all the issues about not only Ms Flight Simulator, but also its application on real world aviation. It is not focused on teaching how to deal with all the commands and menus of flight simulator: it assumes that you know all of this (it has an excellent keyboard cover tough), and focus on teaching you how is real-world flight, and how to bring it inside the game, making you a trully virtual pilot.
However, this book is very focused on the Cessna 182 (It makes me believe I can pilot a real one now :)), and fails somehow on the comercial jets, specially in terms of the landing process. In terms of teaching IFR flying, again it is excellent for propeller planes, but it disapointed me on the comercial planes.
But still it is a very good book, and I would surelly buy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is good softwares fot pilots. 5 Sep 2000
By Summer/Winter - Published on Amazon.com
I am French, but I can do the reading in the English good. I like these simulator books good. When I am home, in Provence, where I am most of the days, or in the palazzo in Capri, I lilke to use my computer for the simulating of the flying. It is true that this book is calling itself for any planes, but the Cessna is flying here mostly. It is still good for simulating the flights, though. And maybe you would be wanting to fly a Cessna good someday. I would be happy to see a simulator game for Learjet and Mooney, because that is mostly the planes that I fly. Also, my sister should be learning, and the Cessna is good. My sister, does not know that I think she sshould be flying, but when you have a business for flying, one pilot is not always so good. She could soon be calling herself a pilot, too..................... ....................Presented by Summer!
