An essential resource for flight simulator enthusiasts and newbies alike.
The flight simulator, to some, is no more than a game. To others they can be anything from an engaging hobby, a training aid for student pilots, or a way in which PPL and Commercial pilots can practice procedures or visualise new routes.
Whatever your level of skill, I hope you find Aeroclicks is an essential resource for flight simulator users. I will try to signpost the wealth of information for the virtual pilot that can be found on the Internet. I will also give you some ideas on where this hobby could take you. For the flying newbie I will help you on the way by giving you some information about common cockpit instruments. Instruments such as the Airspeed Indicator, the Attitude Indicator and the Altimeter, and some of the lesser known instruments which you may or may not be aware of.
Hopefully I will provide the information to make you a better virtual pilot (it may even help the real world pilot). More importantly I want you to enjoy the world of flight simulator flying.
At this point it is important to say that I am not the best virtual flyer out there. Nor do I have a vast amount of electrical knowledge to build my own home cockpit. However, I can share some hints and tips to get the most of your flight simulator even if like me you are not the most practical person.
I am fortunate enough to have had the benefit of some flight training. It was not a lot, but enough to be able to show fully qualified pilots the benefits of using flight sims to support their hobby. My experience was limited to the old faithfuls Cessna 172 and PA 28s.
I hope you enjoy this website and should you have any suggestions as to what you would like to see on these pages then do let me know.
