Simming on Autopilot is an instructional video made by expert flight simmers and professional aviators. Everything is explained in easy-to-follow English with graphical animations.

 

“I made my flight-sim videos to enable my fellow flight simmers to enjoy this hobby as much as I do by simulating flight as realistically as possible,” explains author Bill Stack. “I sincerely believe you will enjoy using my videos.”

Use Autopilot to Fly Anywhere!

  • Set desired heading, altitude, vertical speed
  • Follow flight plans
  • Climb, cruise, descend, approach
  • Use GPS in your autopilot
  • Use autothrottle and flight director
  • Understand knobs, switches, data readouts
  • Use keyboard shortcuts
  • And much more

Enjoy the Advantages of Autopilot

  • Enjoy realistic flight simming
  • Relieve tedium on cross-country flights
  • Ensure navigation accuracy
  • Approach and land precisely

Operate Any Autopilot

  • Airbus A321
  • Beechcraft Baron and King Air
  • Boeing 737 and 747
  • Bombardier Learjet 45 and CRJ-700
  • Cessna 172 and Grand Caravan

Focus and Limits

  1. Explains autopilots in Microsoft Flight Simulator®
  2. Most techniques can be applied to other autopilots in other simulators
  3. For home-flight simulation only
  4. Not for real-world aviation
  5. When you know how to use one autopilot, you can easily learn how to use other autopilots.

This sound quite interesting.  The sample video link above and on your website doesn't seem to work

Thanks for the heads up Greg. I fixed the product page, and also imbedded the sample video in the first post above now too for convenience. :)

I have this product (as well as a number of Bill Stack's other products).

 

My recollection of it is that I believe that it did not live up to the expectations I had for it as a result of reading the product blurb.

 

Also, when I see the word "video" used in relation to a product, it conjures up in my mind something different to this and those of his other products which I recall. I would be inclined to describe them as being in the nature of a narrated/animated Power-Point type presentation on a DVD.

 

Don't get me wrong. It has useful information and would be of assistance to many people. However, it was different to what I was expecting. I don't think that I looked at the sample video before I bought the product. Perhaps, I have only myself to blame. The sample video probably would give you a representative idea of what the product is.

Thanks for your comments.  I've watched the promotional "video" and actually like it as a learning tool.  Quite often real videos, especially made by Americans, tend to move too fast and I find I have to stop, rewind and replay, sometimes several times.  This particular one though probably doesn't have anything that I don't already know.  Very good for newbies I suggest.  His others on navigation could be of interest and relevance to me though.

You are probably right in your assessment.

 

The others I have include "Using Instrument Approach Charts", "Navigating with GPS" and "Using the FSX Flight Planner". From recollection, the were pitched at basically the same level of viewer as this one. I can't remember whether I have any others or whether Bill Stack has produced any others.

 

I got them when I was using my old computer. They were among about 40 programs which I did not bother installing on my new computer when I got it early this year

 

Gary.
