Hello! Advice needed from a relative beginner

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have recently decided to get back into flight simming having not flown for around 5 years. I was working my way through the FSX tutorials back then, but having read up on P3D decided to go down that route for the long term.

 

Any advice on learning to fly? Should I go back through FSX tutorials, or is there a better way?

 

Any advice welcome, thanks in advance.

 

Rob.

Welcome back.

 

I'm going to presume that P3D doesn't have the lessons. There is no harm in using the FSX lessons, sinsce you don't have to go out and buy FSX to get them. It's not like the knowledge gained isn't transferable. They're more than you'd get out of a book. YouTube vids are hit and miss as training guides. Many are well intentioned but flawed. And neither give you any of the feedback that the FSX lessons give you.

 

There are also commercial training products for sims. However they tend to be aeroplane specific and those aeroplanes tend to be of the more complex variety. Let's just say I wouldn't jump straight into the Majestic Dash-8 or PMDG NGX unless you're already pretty comfortable with the basics. (not even sure if the Dash is licenced for P3D. NGX isn't yet)

 

Good luck. There are no dumb questions, if you need to ask.

P3D has a learning center too but you have to go into the P3D directory and find it. Look for Prepar3DLearningCenter in the main directory. They have missions too which you can load at the startup screen (look in the lower left corner for Load...).

Thanks Mike & Jim,

 

I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions at some point!
