Trying to learn more

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, im new here.

 

I wanted to learn a bit more abaut flying. I know how to put a cessna in the air, fly a pattern, landing etc but i dont know anything abaut navigation VOR/DME/ADF or meteorology/reading a metar/types of clouds.

 

My goal is to fly more realistic.

 

I mostly fly low and slow, but using the gps. I want to throw away it out of my plane :)

 

Is the MS learning center good enough? Are there web sites you 'd recommend that are more "up to date"? Witch is the best way?

 

Thanks in advance :)

I found Genc Vadiku's Flight Simulator Tutorials and other videos on YouTube to be very helpful when learning:

https://www.youtube.com/user/FSX404/playlists

 

In particular this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7F70193E8AC5B873

 

Also the Angle of Attack Aviator90 series is pretty good:

Here is a most excellent video on Aviation Weather: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gij4YbplY30

 

YouTube is a very good resource, look there for FSX GPS tutorials and other goodies.

To me, joining Vatsim and a good virtual Airline (VA) made a huge difference in learning more about aviation. VAs often have some real pilots as members who are happy to discuss any detail you care about.

 

I would suggest to join a VA that is also an authorized Vatsim training organization (ATO), see http://ptd.vatsim.net/atos . You do not necessarily have to fly online (at least with some ATO VAs), and it might be a good idea to stay off-line until you have learned enough for the next big step. However, an ATO usually has competent people and a lot of training material.
