Manage Your Flights Realistically
Maximize your engine performance and thrust by managing your fuel mixture, propeller pitch, cowl flaps, carburetor heat, and condition levers at appropriate times in your simulations - just as real-world pilots do in their real airplanes.

Setting Fuel Mixture:
The right mixture of fuel and air is crucial for the best engine performance and fuel economy. The most realistic flight simulations require that we pilots manage our fuel-to-air mixtures. This video explains what fuel mixture is and how to manage it realistically -- like real-world pilots.

Using the Best Propeller Pitch:
The accuracy of propeller pitch makes the simulation more realistic. This video explains propellers with fixed pitches, variable pitches, and constant speeds, and how to manage propeller pitch in aircraft with constant-speed propellers.

Using the Condition Lever:
That extra lever in the turbo-props has special purposes. Learn exactly how to use it.

Using Cowl Flaps:
Cowl flaps on some aircraft assist with cooling the engines, but they also increase drag. This video shows the proper uses of cowl flaps and how to control them.

Carburetor Heat:
Carburetor heat is accurately simulated by X-Plane, so my video explains what carburetor heat is and how and when to use it.

Use Precise Performance Data
Use precise data for your aircraft engine's best performance like a real-world pilot. My supplementary document provides those data in tabular form for the most realistic uses of fuel mixtures and propeller pitches.

Get a Free V-Speed Card
Your professional video includes a free V-Speed Card that lists the most common general-aviation V-speeds in two easy-to-find ways: (1) alphabetically on one side and (2) by velocity on the other side. Each V-speed is identified by name and abbreviation and explained in clear language. The cards are a handy size for using right at your flight simulator. They apply generally to most aircraft, not to any aircraft in particular. My gift to you!

Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed
I know you will enjoy this product and you will be glad you have it because I invest a lot of time and effort toward making quality products that are useful to people. If this book is not as I describe, your money will be refunded. Contents of our books and videos and are adequately described on our web site and on our vendors' websites.

Books and videos that are not what you expected because you did not read the clearly written descriptions are not refundable. You must be able to prove to us that the books and videos do not match our descriptions before a refund will be granted. - Bill Stack, Author

My flight-sim books and videos are only for home flight-simulation computer games. They are based on real aviation laws, regulations, and procedures so home flight-simulation enthusiasts can maximize their enjoyment. Because some aspects of home flight-simulation games are not exactly like real-world aviation, some information in my videos and books is not exactly like real flight. That is why these videos and books are not intended for and should not be used for real-world flight or lessons. We accept no liability for any misuse of my flight-simulation videos or manuals.
