I have learned a lot about FS98 since I purchased it more than 2 years ago. The first thing I learned was coordinates of longitude and latitude, I never knew how to plot coordinates on maps and atlas's so this taught me and the second thing I learned was more about geography I know a lot about geography, I am still flying in FS98 and I am learning about more places in FS98, I am so smart that I can name you all the 13 countries in South America below:

1. Ecuador
2. Bolivia
3. Colombia
4. Brazil
5. Peru
6. French Guiyana
7. British Guiyana
8. Argentina
9. Chile
10. Surniame
11. Uruguay
12. Paraguay
13. Venezuela

I have also logged more than 800,000 miles flown, and more than 3,000 flight hours. There you go, so what have you learned in FS98?  Big grin

I've learned that is hard to fly in Europe unless you download new sceneries and that USA have a lot of small airstrips. I've also learned that it's hard to fly right unless you know a little bit about navigation.


Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

It has taught me A LOT about aviation (navigation, airport infrastructures, airways, ...). I've also learned a lot of local aviation here in Belgium, e.g. the landing routes and takeoff routes,...

FS 98 has also given me the opportunity to discover the world, and to visit many places on this beautiful planet, such as the Seychelles, Antarctica, Greece,Australia and so on...

FS 98 also gave me the possibility to simulate real flights that I made, such as flying Brussels EBBR- Kos(Greece).

As you can see, my knowledge about aviation would have been really poor without FS98.

Flight Simulator 98 was a great stepping stone to FS2000, which taught me about GPS, long range flights, & realistic emergencies.

FS98 was a great thing before FS2K. I learned a lot about air navigation, and it really got me into flying. Now its all I want to do. I have learned tons.

For me: it has made REAL flying a lot more interesting. It is also less worrying to experience turbulence or weird noises, bcos now we know what going on in front!

How do you file a flight plan in FS98? example... if I wanted to fly from CMH to CVG, how would I find the correct headings and know what to program the autopilot to do? Can someone help?

FS98 has taught me how to understand the basics of the cockpit panel. I also learnt the hard way that turbulence is a potentially dangerous! Like the plane going from -200fpm to -1000fpm all of a sudden less than 50 feet from the runway.

America West: I have FSnavigator version 3. It plans the flight and works out the journey time, nearest route, waypoints etc. If you are really lazy, then it can do the flying for you!

America West. In FS98, you need to flight plan manually, as I'm not sure the FSNavigator down load is compatible with FS98 (as it is with FS2000). Go to your nearest airport FBO and buy a Jeppeson IFR sectional chart (or see if you can find an obsolete one from a pilot friend. With the sectionals you could easily plan a CHM-CVG flight using the victor airways between the two airports.
