Visual navigation for flight simulation: Compass, Clock and Chart Part 4
Visual navigation for flight simulation: Compass, Clock and Chart Part 4
1.61Mb (865 downloads)
For use in any Flight simulator. Part 4 of the tutorial for navigation in ANY real-world-based sim, using real aeronautical charts and only ground-based navaids, or none at all. It will work with any sim, because the program is not run on your computer- it's run between your ears! Those interested in learning to navigate this way will also want to download my complete set of real US sectionals ("realvfrcharts"), converted to pdf form for use in kneeboard viewers or on a separate display. In this part, we will plan and fly a straight-line flight over mostly water,using mostly dead reckoning and no in-flight wind or cloud updates. In Part 5, we will plan and fly a straight-line flight with no prior wind and cloud information except what we find at the departure airport. FS9 is used for the tutorial, but ANY sim that references real-world charts can be used.

Real Charts VFR Sectionals: Hawaiian Islands
24.02Mb (535 downloads)
Hi-def scans of real VFR aeronautical United States charts, as available for download from the FAA, reduced and formatted in pdf form by me for use with flight sims. Display them in a kneeboard utility,print them, whatever...I like to use fragments of them to make pdfs for different flights, but that is only one way. If you want to "get real" about navigating in the sim the way it's done in real life, these charts are for you. But you might also just enjoy wandering around, comparing the chart to the world depicted in the sim. These charts will most likely be outdated by the time you use them, or your sim may even pre-date the charts, but they should work well enough. A basic guide for interpreting them is included, as well as tips on how to measure and mark them. Each chart also includes a handy chart legend, a map showing what region it covers, and airspace and frequency information. If you are unfamiliar with how to use them for navigation, be sure to check out my multi-part tutorial series "Compass, Clock, and Chart", available here at simviation.com.
