New Sim user

Have just started with MFS and so far i have found the guide invaluable for getting my head around the the vast controls of the Sim. I havent added it to the sim yet but will do this later this week. It really has already helped my understanding and i'm looking forward to improve my experience.

Best Guide for MS Flight Simulator!

fabulous

Absolutely a must-have for the majority of MSFS20 users! Nice pics, clear explanations and guidelines, and very well structured!
MSFS20 is great but exactly this was missing, for starters a necessary manual to "get up in the air".

With 442 pages of great text you can hardly go wrong with this manual. There is something in it for every Flight Simmer. MSFS 2020 was a great boost to flight simulation, and this manual is a great boost tp MSFS 2020. I have hardly had a chance to give it a comprehensive review, but I love what I see;Thank you SoFly!

A helpful tool

The SoFly manual provides very accurate information and instructions about the use of the new Flight Simulator, which should have (but have not) been included by the developers as a part of the game. The manual could be further extended to cover more subjects but even now it is a very helpful tool. We wait for updates. Good job!

Useful but!!!

I found the guide useful but I feel that it could be improved by removing the fluff regarding the flight sim history and adding much more including labelled diagrams on the cockpit layouts of the GA aircraft, how to trim the Cessna 152 correctly for takeoff, level flight and landing and instrument lighting switches for night flights or cloudy weather! One final point is that instead of just a walkthrough of tutorial flights I would suggest that some supplemental info could be added! All in all though a worthwhile purchase!

Flight Simulator Guide Extended

Great product. My only suggestion to improve this guide now that is getting larger, would be to have each subject in the contents section made into clickable links which take you to the section you want. I give it four stars.
