Pilot Training Workshop: Flight simulation for primary and instrument training

PC-based flight simulation has been around for quite a while and has come a very long way, especially with the advances in visuals systems and flight model fidelity. The days of PC’s being relegated to the dusty backrooms of flight schools has long since passed and they’re becoming more prevalent for primary and instrument training.

This presentation will focus on techniques you can use, in conjunction with your real world flight training program, to maximize the utility and value of your PC-based flight simulator at home.

We’ll cover:
- flight control and avionics choices
- flight simulator package options
- visual system options
- what are sims good for? what are their limitations?
