This may be a long post, so please bear with me. I can land 747's and mostly anything else for that matter but I've not done it 'According to the Book'. I want to learn to do that, so where would you suggest I start? I've been through most of the flight lessons but got sick of the Instructor saying 'This is'nt going well'. Familiar?Also, is there something I should know about addon aircraft? Specifically an A320 Airbus I've been flying for a few days. I can stand the thing on its tail and it will still climb with about N2 at 88 degrees. It handles like a total dream lands like a butterfly with sore feet. Surely that can't be right and I swear I've looked but can't find the command for taking screenshots. Please help.Jon

I'll leave your first question for the Avsim gurus to handle :) I would imagine it will have a lot to do with graphs, calculating weights/fuel burn & following checklists to the letter!But I can help you with the second question!You need a small free program called FSScreen to take screenshots. Get it here:http://www.simradar.com/File/General_Tools___Utilities/Once you have downloaded it, start it and leave it running on the taskbar. When you fly you just need to press the Print Screen button on your keyboard and FSScreen will take a screenshot and store it on your hard drive. You can take as many pictures as you want, just keep pressing the button.The pictures will be stored in the folder FSScreen resides in.A tip: take your screenshots while FS9 is in fullscreen mode so you dont have the menu bar and taskbar visible (and which you have to waste time editing out):)

Thanks for your reply and the link to fsscreen. I'm puzzled (especially with fs9) why M$ did'nt include a 'screenshot' capability in the original package. Go figure.I hope a few of the Guru's reply to my original question. Mainly to find out if it's possible to learn to fly the big aircraft the way the 'Big Kids' do. Having said that, I'm wondering if the flight data etc. for each aircraft in fs9 is sufficient. I'd still like to get hold of some more technical info but since Sept. 11th. I would'nt be surprised if much of it has been severely restricted.Thanks again.Jon

You can also take screen shots by pressing the Print Screen button on your keyboard (which puts the image in your clipboard for pasting into Paint or other graphic software), but utilities like FSScreen make it a lot easier (auto resize, auto save etc.)
