At Galvin Flying Services I instruct in a variety of Technically Advanced Aircraft (see the Air Safety Institute Special Report on TAA) and in the DA40 and DA42 simulators equipped with a complete G1000 system. I also co-developed the Garmin G1000 ground school at the Galvin flight school.

I worked on many versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator during my career at Microsoft, and I've observed hundreds—perhaps thousands—of pilots and virtual aviators "fly" the PC-based simulation. Unfortunately, many folks aren't realizing all the benefits they could enjoy from using Flight Simulator as a training aid.
This presentation, based on my book Microsoft Flight Simulator as a Training Aid: A Guide for Pilots, Instructors and Virtual Aviators, offers specific suggestions to help students, pilots, and instructors use Flight Simulator effectively, as a virtual cockpit, in ground school and preflight and postflight briefing sessions, and as a home-study tool.
I also provide an overview of features that many folks overlook, and I explore many myths and misconceptions about FAA approval of flight training devices, logging simulator time, and related topics.
