My wife has bought me a 'Flight Yoke System' and FSX11 for my birthday. The disks haven't even arrived yet. My question is how do I learn the basics of flying? Is there a tutorial/handbook with the game and if so, is it possible to access it now, before the game arrives.
When you load the game you will see that they have a section where you can take flying lessons.
After you do those you try to fly an aircraft of your own choice.
I would suggest flying a single engine aircraft or a DC-3.
Trying to fly an airliner first will be frustrating, they will come after you master that smaller craft.
Thanks Radarman, that’s very helpful. I’m looking forward to it.
I've finally received my discs and I'm loading them now. I knew it would take a while, but disc 1 has been in for 3 hours now, is that right? It's definitely loading but it's painfully slow. My computer is brand new, 1TB of memory and 8GB RAM.
That's long, but if it's still loading leave it alone.
You may be asked to put in another disk and then go back again.
It took me 45 minutes I think...long time ago.
