Overview

Have you ever entertained jet fighter fantasies -- perhaps screaming after enemy bogies high above the Gobi desert -- but just couldn’t seem to find the time? Well, author Nick Dargahi can provide some gratification with The Ultimate Flight Simulator Pilot’s Guide, the definitive guide to Microsoft’s Flight Simulator for Windows® 95 and Flight Simulator 98.

The Ultimate Flight Simulator Pilot’s Guide pushes Microsoft’s aerial applications to the outer limits with illustrations, equations, and aeronautic fundamentals such as flight maneuvers, takeoffs and landings, meteorological prognostication, flight plans, and global navigation. Dargahi consulted accomplished pilots, software developers, and experts in aviatory physics, and the finished product is a flight simulation guide without peer.

With the companion CD-ROM, you can retrace Amelia Earhart’s tragic attempt to circumnavigate the globe, or you can test-fly 21 new planes, including the world’s first jet-powered fighter plane – the Messerschmitt Me 262. The CD-ROM also contains an impressive collection of customization tools, navigational aids, maps, and charts, along with DAFIF – a global listing of navaids and airports generated by the U.S. Department of Defense.

Editorial Reviews

Charlie Gulick
TO ALL: I unreservedly recommend Nick's new book (The Ultimate Flight Simulator Pilot's Guide Book, MIS Press, Division of Henry Holt, ISBN 1-55828-574-1). Not only is it up to the high standards Nick has always set for his work--this time it surpasses them. Get it! ( All your bookseller needs to order the title is the ISBN number.)
Georges Lorsché
Now what an incredible volume!. I have just thumbed through it and that was by far enough to know that it is exactly what it claims to be: *Ultimate*! Congratulations for having achieved this masterpiece...
Will Leonard
Got the book today,,,,,,,, OUTSTANDING.......... I have to tell you this looks to be one hell of a book well worth the 40 bucks even without the CD. With the CD, this is a bargain.
Lee James
I have both of your earlier publications on FS5 and FS5.1. I just felt it right to congratulate you and thank you for something that will enlighten a lot of very dedicated people here and across the world - well done sir ! The book is the best ..... nothing like it ! It's brilliant as I knew it would be !
Norm Sternburg
If your latest book is ONE HALF as good as your previous work, it will be the greatest flight simulator book ever published in the English language!! I tell you that your previous book is the best book I have ever read on the subject of flight simulations. It still occupies a privileged place on my shelf next to my computer. As someone who spent more than 20 years doing technical writing in the telecommunications field (retired from Siemens) I know what good writing can be, what GREAT writing IS. Your work falls in the second category!
