MY MSFS FLIGHT TRAINING & TUTORIALS! Noo...
String Flights Together Without Going Back to Main Menu | MSFS | Easy & Advanced
After landing and getting credit for your flight you can continue instead of going back to the main menu. You can continue create a new simple or complex flight plan, file it with ATC, taxi and be on your way. This livestream will show you several ways to create a flight a plan in the A320 NEO Flight Computer ( MCDU). From very simple to very detailed.
TOP GUN PREP TUTORIAL | F-14 & F-18
Just a few days until the free TOP GUN DLC is available for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This is a refresher tutorial for the F-14 & F-18. Everything I have learned so far for each plane. Apologies for the previous attempt. Everything that could go wrong DID go wrong.
Noob Discovers DEADLY BLISS in the F-35 (Session3) TUTORIAL RECAP
RECAP TUTORIAL of what we learned in the first TWO livestream sessions. - Startup - Screen Operations - Vertical Takeoff/ HOVER - Transitioning to Slow and Default Flight Modes - Autopilot/Auto-Throttle - Flight Plan Waypoints - VOR & TACAN Navigation! USER MANUAL: https://orbx-user-guides.storage.googleapis.com/indiafoxtecho-f35-msfs-user-guide-388ff3.pdf
DEADLY BLISS in the F-35 (Session2)
OK! We're getting the hang of the BASIC operations and have done a few nice TRANSITIONS from VTOL Takeoff to Slow Flight and then to Standard Flight Mode ...then back to slow, and VTOL Landing. ALSO: - Startup procedures - Basic Touch Screen Operations ( Pages/subpages) - Using Autopilot - Flight Plans - VOR Navigation - TACAN Navigation Not a lot of success yet doing a manual landing without VTOL
The Noob Gets DEADLY BLISS in the F-35 | User Manual Walkthrough (Session1)
You've heard me rant endlessly about un-intuitive, hair pulling Cockpits & Systems of F-18 etc. That I have been looking for intuitive nirvana. I'VE FOUND IT! FINALLY! I've had about an hour with IndiaFoxtEcho's Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning B version with no user manual & have found it SUPER intuitive. In this 'Getting to Know You' livestream we will go through the current USER MANUAL and discover more DEADLY BLISS.
Live Practice Q&A Dec 2021 | Noob to Noob HELP | MSFS2020
To help other NOOBS like MYSELF! Practice makes perfect and I need a LOT more practice! With this live practice I would like to cover: - Airport & Runway Traffic Pattern Info - Taxi Pattern Legs - Checklist - ATC - Winds (METAR), Compas Nav, VOR nav, GPS nav, Autopilot functions and anything else I can remember. I have not done a training livestream in a long time. Please be patient.
ILS SUCCESS in 3 MINS | 3 COMMON PROBLEMS | Noobflights
ILS like a BOSS in 3 mins by having the correct frequency, being in the correct NAV mode and at the correct elevation. You'll use The World Map Filters to toggle on ILS Nav Aids then use https://www.Skyvector.com (the Internet or whatever your favorite site/app is) to find your airport and runway. After double-checking your frequency and looking for where "X" marks the spot you find the correct waypoint & elevation. This is the KEY to your success when setting up for an Instrument Landing System automated approach. I will also show you how to use the above for an ILS landing on Runway 17 Left at KCOS. Hope you enjoy this. Trying to keep it short and to the point! If you have any questions, please ask. Best Wishes Tony T

Manual Airbus MCDU + SEVERAL ways to plan w SKYVECTOR, SIMBRIEF & FLIGHT AWARE!
Setting up flights; 'on the fly' or stringing them together is easy when you understand the MCDU in the Airbus A320; included FREE in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020! You have to think of it like a Garmin GPS. The ability to create, enter/edit a FLIGHT PLAN is the same goal. It's just a very different way of going about it. Practice for awhile and it will become second nature and allow you to pick-up learning the MCDU functions in other Airliners faster. Unfortunately, there is no STANDARD among Airplane makers. No matter what way you plan to do this you need DATA/information. Either from the world map or the other sources. Since part of the end goal is to NOT have to keep going back to the main menu/World Map every time you want to start a new flight, you will need to have tools like: SKYVECTOR, SIMBRIEF and FLIGHTAWARE. This allows you to stay in your flight and make any changes you need at any time...QUICKLY. AIRBUS A320 NEO MCDU: You can create an entire flight plan in the MCDU without needing other Third-Party Apps, provided you have all the information you need to input it. To get flight planning information so that you may create a flight plan in the MCDU rapidly, I recommend using SKYVECTOR. To create full flight plans, download the data and LOAD it into the MCDU, I recommend using SIMBRIEF or FLIGHTAWARE (Both FREE). In this livestream I will demonstrate how to do ALL OF THE ABOVE. SET ASIDE A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME AND GET YOUR COFFEE READY! HAPPY FLYING!
THE WIND AND YOU! | METARs | Getting ACTIVE WIND Maps | PART OF ATIS
In the real world of flying, they say you may be required to study the wind patterns of your expected flight plan for UP TO SEVEN DAYS before filing a flight plan! This video is what I have learned so far on the subject. I'll be using the map at AVIATIONWEATHER.GOV (https://aviationweather.gov/) Happy Flying!
My MIXTURE & High Altitude Crashing Problem.
Getting used to flying in the mountains has not happened yet. It's always scary. The winds flow along the terrain, rising and falling and usually taking your airplane along with it! One minute everything is fine and the next...DEAD. Not only is the wind trying to kill you. I need to master what the RED LEVER does and why you need to adjust it when flying high.
Making Sure Live Weather is On in Microsoft Flight Sim
This was a silly problem. The settings have changed. Once they fix the In-Flight Time and Weather, this may become a problem again. If it is not set from the World Map before the flight and you activate it while in-flight, you may not get real-time.
FLIGHT PLAN |EDIT Waypoints | World Map & Garmin G1000
At the time of release, building a plan EXACTLY the way you want can be very frustrating. You can only add extra points after setting up your departure and arrival. Then what do you do if you need to edit those points in your GPS while in-flight!? Background Music Track; 'TAKING FLIGHT', is a Copyright Free; 'Background Music' selection, in Windows 10 Video Editor (Movie Maker).
"Get out of my airspace & learn where to fly, noob!" | MSFS | Airspace Practice Routes
We could use the in-game filters and in-game VFR Map to help use learn where we can and cannot fly. I find it easier to open that free website I love so much to help us see much more detailed info on finding safe areas to fly. We can discover practice routes and routes to go cross-country without bothering anyone!
How to: Steam Gauge | (VORs) Radio Station TO Radio Station Navigation
The old-school radio in the old-school cockpit may not look like or work just like the one in your car but it does the same thing and MUCH MORE! YOU use the knobs to DIAL-IN a radio station frequency and then use your VOR COMPASS to fly TO & FROM it on specific radials. Happy Flying!
Cessna172 | CHECKLIST
Being the most available trainer aircraft, The Cessna Skyhawk 172 has the most extensive pre-and post-flight checklists in the sim to help you become familiar with more systems/functions. Using the EVALUATION option is great. You'll get faster and faster and it will become second nature.
Fly & Land an Airbus in 15 Mins!
15 minutes from now you will know some MAGIC! Nothing is worse than doing a long flight and not sticking the landing. You may not get ANY credit for the flight at all! That was happening to me a lot. I'm just not the greatest when it comes to having the touch with the airliners. The thought of killing so many virtual passengers was starting to crack me up too. I HAD to start practicing AUTOMATED and ASSSTED landings over and over. 1) Plan a flight 2) Get (ILS) Frequency 3) ! ! Find Glideslope Elevation!! 4) Scan Takeoff & Landing speeds 5) Enter ILS frequency into MCDU 6) Set Autopilot Speed, Altitude, Vertical Speed. TAKEOFF. Engage Autopilot. Set throttle to proper auto-throttle position. 7) Set Auto-land source ( MISTAKE: NOT NEEDED? This is for displaying VOR data in the MFD) 8) Make the plane turn onto the LOCALIZER with the LOC button. 9) When at the right altitude and distance from the runway you will get the glideslope diamond in the MFD. When the Glideslope Diamond centers select APPROACH. 10) When the plane is just a few hundred feet from runway, DISENGAGE AUTOPILOT and gently pull nose up (FLAIR). TOUCHDOWN. ENGAGE BRAKES. ENGAGE THROTTLE REVERSE THRUST. I hope this helps or that you have a better way to practice. Happy Flying. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Edit 2021: Pardon my noob mistakes. I have learned a lot since then. Thank you for all your help! CORRECTION: The FLAPS on takeoff were NOT all the way up. It looks like they are but they are NOT. THIS is why there is the OVERSPEED WARNING. Either set 0 FLAPS on takeoff or soon after lift-off. Remember to raise landing gear too. Re-recorded this and FIXED MIC AUDIO! This video was done in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
Skyvector Flight Planning | Airport Info | Elevations |SID, STAR, ILS PDFs
When this video was made, BING was not incorporated into the WORLD MAP. BING info is still not part of the IN-FLIGHT VFR MAPS. A Pity. Skyvector is free and is BIG help! One of the BEST flying TOOLS available, for FREE. It provides LOTS of flying information you need: - MOST IMPORTANTLY: ELEVATIONS (Currently not included in Microsoft Flight Simulator) - Airport Info - Runway info - Approach & Departure charts - ILS LANDING Charts - Different types of REAl-TIME Flying maps. Visual Flight Maps, IFR LO, IFR HIGH - Flight Planning I hope you enjoy my educational video. Happy Flying!
BIG HELP! Use the Landing Path | Visual Aid Option
Visualizing the landing path is a HUGE help! Landing Path is NOT on by Default & must be set to ON in Options/Assistance/Navigation Aids. Also Look for: The TAXI RIBBON to assist getting to ground services at airports (IF available at that airport) Fly through Gates in the sky down to the runway. Red Gates = TOO FAST! Blue Gates= Correct Speed! Visualizations help learn the Taxi Pattern. !!!
Manual GPS G1000
Garmin G1000 Cessna Skyhawk. - Airspaces for Noobs - Finding GPS Points in MSFS & Skyvector, Intersection Waypoints, Victor Airways, GPS Flightplan button, GPS knob functions, CLR, Autopilot: NAV, - Standard Departures (SIDS) & Skyvector PDF's - Standard Arrival routes(STARS) and Skyvector PDF's
BEST PLANE for BEGINNERS? - ICON A5 !!!
Hands down, sir and or madam! This amazing (ground or water landing) plane feels more like a small sports-car, making learning landing much easier. It's approachable and does not overwhelm you with gauges & switches. It lets you concentrate on the basics, Flying & landing! It's SO good you will become overconfident and end up doing a lot of things you shouldn't. That's what simulators are for though! This plane has the best chance of making someone totally new want to keep learning more!
AP Buttons: ALT, VS, FLC, Nose UP/Down | Cessna172
Instrument Flying and using your AUTOPILOT IS THE WAY TO GO. Big PIMPIN'! I will demonstrate using the Garming G1000 Autopilot Buttons to: Hold Altitude, Do a Flight Level Change, Climb, Descend, Climb/Descend Faster or Slower. Use Altitude Knobs (Inner/Outer) to set an Altitude. Something I have discovered: Until you become the MASTER of the AUTOPILOT, it should be thought of as YOUR WORST ENEMY. A MONSTER who will try and KILL YOU whenever possible. Know how to dis-engage your AUTOPILOT FAST. I recommend a KEYBOARD Keybind as you may not be able to keep your hands on a cockpit element during an emergency situation. Because of my early in-experience the autopilot has killed me more times than I can remember. If you have any questions please ask! Be careful! HAPPY FLYING!
ATC/ATIS | SETTING ALTIMETER | Cessna 172
Remember that movie where bad guys told a pilot to make an adjustment, so he and the plane thought the runway was higher than it was and they crashed!? Boy was John McLane mad! This is about using ATC/ATIS to make sure you have the right Altimeter Number (Barometric Pressure) dialed in so you and your plane know exactly where the runway and ground is. I will show how with the Altimeter gauge and with the Garmin G1000 so the same things does not happen to you; but without the bad guys. You would be your own bad guy for not checking ATIS and making sure your Altimeter is set right. It can change fast over short distances. Use the ATC/COM Radio tune into a 'major' airport with an ATIS before taking off and before landing. As you travel about various ATC controllers will give you the ALT #. If you have any questions please ask! HAPPY FLYING!
Class G Airspace | Fly most anywhere without filing a Flight Plan | General Info
The political humor is just a bit of fun to facilitate the flying lesson concepts. I'm not trying to be political. Class G airspace is uncontrolled. You don't need to work with regional Air Traffic controllers to move about (for the most part) if you stay below 1,200 ft (mostly). Noobs should stay low anyway! Noobflights concepts: - Keeping the Deep State Out of Your Bidnez w Class G Airspace! - Finding VOR radio frequencies in MSFS2020 - Tuning NAV Radios to VOR radio stations, - The CDI button to activate a radio source - Finding VOR radio stations and other frequencies while 'in flight' using Skyvector. - GPS Navigation using a radio source. - Autopilot Buttons: ALT, FLC, VS - Cruising and conserving MAX fuel: Mixture, EGT, Fuel Flow, (some info on EGT Red Lines and engine detonation may be incorrect)~~
The World Map Interface & Flight Planning | Bonus: Skyvector & Flight Aware info
The first time you enter the World Map you may be confused on the many ways to set up a flight plan or how to use the filters options to see more information or declutter your map. This should help you understand many of your primary options. Please ask questions if you need further help! Flight Planning Options on the World Map Interface. - DIRECT GPS: (Enter a departure and arrival and get a DIRECT TO, GPS flight plan, - VOR to VOR: Similar to the above. Using Radio NAV points rather than Ground Radio. - IFR Low: INTRUMENT Flying Routes. Imagine MAPPED Highways in the sky at different altitudes. This is the low highway. - IFR HIGH: Instrument Flying Routes that use higher altitude, established map routes. - Departure Routes = SIDS. Established routes to use when leaving an airport. Facilitating departures to a specific compas direction. - Arrival Routes = STARS. Established Arrival routes facilitating flights coming in from different compass headings. - Using the World Map Filters to enable seeing ILS Frequencies. You will need to use this option to see runway ILS transponders. The Frequencies will now be available too. BONUS INFORMATION! The MSFS Visual Flight Map used while IN-FLIGHT ( Unfortunately at this time) DOES NOT have all the information you will need. Example: ELEVATIONS! For this it is VERY HELPFUL to use a THIRD PARTY APP like: SKYVECTOR and or FLIGHT AWARE. While In-Flight you will need access to RADIO NAV Frequencies, Terrain Elements for Visual Navigation, Elevation info, Airspace Info, Airport ATIS Frequencies, etc. - IN NORTH AMERICA USE THE FREE MAPS at SKYVECTOR.COM for FLIGHT PLAN INFO. - Using Flight Aware. This is a neat tool to create detailed flight plans OUTSIDE of MSFS and LOAD them into MSFS! Particularly handy for airliner flying! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have any questions please ask! You can also email me: Kinneas@aol.com. Though I do not check email that often. HAPPY FLYING!
HOW TO FIND ILS FREQUENCIES On the World Map - FILTER OPTIONS
If ILS are not seen on World Map after selecting an IFR Flight Plan. Select FILTERS at the bottom of Main Menu, then goto NAVIGATION and turn NAV AIDS on. ILS Markers should now be available at the end points of a runway. A window with airport info and the ILS Frequency should appear on right side of screen.
