New Simmer Tutorial Video Series (And How To Fly A Pattern)

I’ve had requests to make tutorials, so with this video I’m starting a new “Simmer Tutorials” playlist at YouTube that I hope will help simmers bring more real-world procedures to their flight simulation. I know bringing more real-world process to my own simming has been one of the things I’ve enjoyed most as I’ve done my own flight training, and I hope these videos will do the same for other simmers who aren’t actually working toward their Private Pilot ticket.

This first video is about flying a basic traffic pattern, and I hope it’s of interest to simmers looking to make more realistic VFR landings in their sims. Of course, NONE of this should be considered actual flight instruction, and my intention is that these videos are by a simmer, for simmers. With that said, thanks for watching.

I deleted the driver and will now test to see if it works. If it DOES NOT, all you need to do is spin the trim wheel once before loading P3D to “wake up” the wheel and there will be no crash. But I often forget to do that …
