Nicely made, but pdf improvements required

I have bought two items the "Aircraft Checklist Pro" and "A Completed Guide to FS 2023". I highly appreciate the addition of pdf documents for offline use. What I am really missing is that in both documents the pdf bookmark feature is not used. It is not really complicated to generate bookmarks at pdf generation automatically. At least the Guide features an active table of contents where one can jump to the chapter in question. The ToC in the Checklist is just text. Not really useful. Anyway, a good addition to MSFS.

Areat manual for MSFS

A must before real take off

I've had various simulators on various platsforms since the early 90's. Without a manual you are pretty lost but generally they have included instructive nice thick BOOKS (yes, paper!). Today's incredibly complex MSFS positively demands a comprehensive guide and I was really happy when I found there is one. Sometimes dry-flying can be as thrilling as real sim-flying! Thank you!

Nev Edwards
Good stuff!

Really good to have on hand and very good to have available for in sim use.
There is precious little else out there so I have no hesitation in recommending this fine piece of work.

Len Gould
Confusing Version Numbers

The manual is good but I found the version number confusing. I bought the latest version not realising I could have had a free update.

Mats Nilsson

Far better than the manual that came in the
10 disc package

MSFS Guide

A well laid out manual that is missing from MSFS 2020. Good examples for getting to grips with complex aircraft navigational systems. Only comment is that a a guide is provided for the Boeing 737NG (third party) that needs to be purchased but doesn't give where from.
