It is far easier,Nicer,Better to use a Joystick - you can get them from almost ANY computer shop, PC world will definitely have one!
1. Which keys do you use to steer the aircraft during taxiing?
You can set the keys to what ever you want them to do - just use one of the options when FS2002 is up on your screen - meddle about with all the settings like traffic rate - put on 100% if you have a good computer - the more percentage the more other planes on the ground and in the air - making you game more realistic!
2. How do you advance the time of your flight should you wish to?
Just don't land - LOL
If you are in a lesson or a flight that is all ready saved on the computer then I don't know - but click on select a flight and you can make what ever flight you want - from Heathrow to paris or Heathrow to New York - anywhere - and what every time,date,plane you want,
If you want to ask "ME" anymore info just click on my profile and send an instant message. OK!
Or just post another question - although u will get a quicker response from privet chat then in here with me.

Thanks for all your comments, it's gratifying to know that you still view beginners questions like mine with some sympathy.
My joystick doesn't 'twist', however, I managed to suss out that using keys 0 and Enter on the keypad (with numbers lock off) steers it left and right. I also managed my first full flight last night in a 777-300 from Heathrow to Manchester, nice greaser landing and stopped with just under half the runway left.

To make time pass press alt and go to the toll bar and go to options I think than simulation rate. If you joystick does not control the plane on the ground and since your joystick does not twist or you dont have rudder pedals you should go to realism options and check the box for auto rudder. Than the joystick will control the plane on the ground. Makes it alot better.
