Using x-plane to practice instrument approaches


I would like to use x-plane in order to practice radio instruments and instrument approaches. I was wondering, though, if there is any literature or tutorials on how to conduct an instrument approach using x-plane 9. Can anyone be of assistance?

We might as well do away with our X-Plane forum if it is going to be ignored.

I Mainly fly FS9, I also have FSX, and I tried the trial of Xplane10

SERIOUSLY - I dont understand why so many claim Xplane is so great-I saw some nice stuff in it, but it certaily didnt fly like a real aircraft (no sim does)--It seems to me that it was more of a test than anythingelse-to see how many would buy it, much as it was with FLIGHT

Really If you want to learn approaches and IFR flight-go to the local airport and to to the FBo there , and just buy a REAL flight instruction book--everything in a REAL manual can be applied to FS9 or FSX -Or most any sim with full avionics

BTW Radarman the link seems to be not correct and goes nowhere
