Chuck's Guides for Prepar3d/FSX Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I've made some guides to help newcomers familiarize themselves with some of the popular aircraft add-ons for P3D and I thought I'd share them here with you. I don't pretend to be an expert, so keep in mind that these guides aren't perfect and may simplify some things. I tried to cross-check as much as possible most of the procedures with real aircraft manuals and online pilot tutorials, so if you spot any mistakes, feel free to send me a private message and I'll have them fixed when I can.

Wow, this is incredible! For ages have I wanted an easy-to-use, concise PDF that explains me how to fly the Leonardo Maddog, for those tutorial videos really aren't working for me. Seems like this will fit the bill very well. Thank you!!

Chuck, your guides are hands down some of the best ever written, in many cases rivaling the manufacturers in content and usefulness.

Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

Wow! Holy cow! Just had a look at the Q400 guide, not because I needed it (I know almost everything about what I consider to be the best addon plane ever) but out of curiosity. But boy, that is one awesome guide!!! Whenever someone will ask me about the Q400 I will point them towards you site! Great work! Indeed rivaling the official developers manual and guides! It must have cost you tons of hours to create it! And that's just one guide...! The cockpit layout section is one of the most comprehensive I've ever seen. And the information about all the planning and calculating varitous things... It's a lot more than just a Q400 guide! And I only yet skimmed through the first part quickly.

I've downloaded it an will read it from A to Z even though (I think) I know all there is to know. 😉 I am sure there will be a few things I actually didn't know...! Excellent work!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. I appreciate it.

I'm currently torn between two modules for my next guide: the PMDG 747 or their 777.

Which one should I go for first?

Superb work.

Really well done and most suitable for a 74 year old thanks kindly 🙂 Personal preference for me would be the 777 - I already own this aircraft and have no real desire for a 747.  Thanks again.  Regards.
