Sample chapter from Building Simulated Aircraft Instruments

Recommended Posts

A sample chapter from the almost published book, Building Simulated Aircraft Instruments is available as a PDF download here: www.mikesflightdeckbooks.comMikewww.mikesflightdeck.comp.s. Don't be confused by the fact that the cover has "Building Simulated Aircraft Instrumentation" printed on it. This is merely an artifact of the author suffering severe brain-fade from writing too much and working on his sim too little. The book really is titled "Building Simulated Aircraft Instruments", and sadly, the cover really will have "Building Simulated Aircraft Instrumentation" printed on it. :-doh

Thank you all for your interest! With each comment I feel my blood pressure coming down.:-jumpy The set up costs for having a professional book manufacturer put ink on paper for the book are substantial. If I don't sell a lot of these, my wife's going to be feeding me hot dogs and macaroni for a very long time. :-erks Claudio, I'm reasonably certain I can send the book internationally, and I intend to try. The US postal service has a not too outrageous rate that has about a ten(?) day delivery time. Customs fees, tariff, VAT may or may not push the delivered price too high. I haven't looked at those costs specifically for Italy. For other European countries, there did not seem to be any customs fees or tariffs. VAT ranged from 0 to 30% and I couldn't figure out just how it was determined. The web site I was looking at said something like "reduced or zero VAT may apply", but did not explain under what conditions.Mikewww.mikesflightdeck.com

Thanks Mike.In EC the VAT is fixed at 20%.Theoretically the customs should calculate VAT on the item price, but they often use the number printed on the box which in turn often represent both the product price and shipping fee.In Italy in special, packages with value less then 45

Thanks for the tariff/VAT/fees/etc information, Claudio. It sounds even more involved than I thought.The macaroni comes in a little box with a foil packet of dry powder very loosely called "cheese". As a college student I could buy it for 19 cents a box. I ate a lot of it. Too much of it. I would love to have some maccheroni, however.Mikewww.mikesflightdeck.com
