Microsoft® Flight Simulator as a Training Aid
by Bruce Williams
This book merges the two worlds of flight simulation (gaming) with flight training–the only book of its kind on how to use the world’s most popular flight simulator as a true aid to becoming a pilot or teaching flight. Practice doesn’t necessarily make skills perfect, but it can make them permanent. The weighty assortment of practice flights included, and the guidance on how to best fly them, make it easy for any pilot or instructor–real or virtual–to attain the highest level of flight proficiency they seek.
Although many pilots and instructors have used Microsoft Flight Simulator during their flying careers and may have been inspired to pursue flight training by their early encounters with the program, often they don’t know how to get the most out of the experience of virtual flying today. This book will change that. Visit www.bruceair.com for more information and links to make sure your time spent with Microsoft Flight Simulator is fun and educational.
Includes a bonus companion CD with more than 150 VFR and IFR Practice Flights that make it easy to use Microsoft Flight Simulator to practice specific skills, from basic flight maneuvers to instrument approaches. The CD also includes reference documents, charts, and other tools to transform virtual flying into an inexpensive, flexible, and effective learning environment.

Questioning and Teaching
by J.T. Dillon
This author has made an extensive study of the place of questioning in education and this book is the fullest record to date of that study. Its scope is comprehensive. It considers questions from the point of view of the one questioning and the one being questioned, and considers pupil and teacher in both of these roles. This work is grounded in theory, research, and practice and is informed by research done in other fields such as psychotherapy, criminal interrogation, and computer science.
