Tips Tricks & Trips

By: First Class Simulations (Browse our First Class Simulations store)


Microsoft's Flight Simulator X is now making its way onto the computer systems of many virtual pilots. FSX takes advantage of today's more powerful processors and graphic cards to deliver an extraordinary realistic simulation environment. Within FSX lies a huge variety of user controlled features that broaden the experience even further than was previously possible.

With this additional power comes some level of complexity. The aim of this new book is to put the complexity to rest so that you can enjoy the Flight Simulator experience rather than fight it.
Adam Howe and Scott Slaughter, two of our flight sim experts who also have many years of writing experience, are putting their thoughts to pen for their new book Tips, Tricks & Trips for Flight Simulator X.

This is not a users manual for Flight Simlulator X. Instead, it's a collection of "right to the point" articles that will help you run FSX faster, better, easier and have more fun!.

Tips, Tricks & Trips presents topics that you won't find elsewhere. This new 220-page book is written with minimal "technicalese" for easy reading.
