Instant Classic!

As a new Flight Sim fanatic, I learned some critical info the first 5 minutes of leafing through the pages. It is a wealth of info. Thanks SoFly!!!

A Must Have

Excellent. It is a "must have" for any amateur, learner or newbie. It provides the nuts and bolts of the game.

Gary Omundsen
Wonderful Guide, even for Xbox users

I got this just for the pdf manual, as I use MSFS only on Xbox, and it is well worth it. A mine of information, and great tutorials. Highly recommended for all levels.

Jan Van Riebeke

Rating five

As I have just only recently received my copy of your publication, I am not able to give a full justification.
But as far it just looks enjoyable

New Beginings

As an older user of this new flight sim this guide has been invaluable. The layout is very well done and the various guides on the cameras and flight deck components were particularly useful. I look forward to using it more in depth as my experience grows.

John Clark
Looks Good

I have not had the time to fully review it yet. But, skimming through it I find there is good information.

Ben Smeman

I am user of the first ed. The book is now more complete!

Great guide

still working through the guide but so far so good. It's what was needed to be released with the game software.
