DIXON GILLETTE: Welcome back to Expert Village,
my name is Dixon Gillette and let’s continue our tutorial on Microsoft Flight Simulator
X. The more difficult maneuvers to perform in an aircraft is actually maintaining straight
and level flight. Now in order to get yourself established right from the get-go, it’s important
to learn how to use a very small, smooth control inputs whether you’re using a mouse or a joystick.
Pilots want to tend to overcorrect a lot, which will end up giving your aircraft severe
oscillations. So just keep in mind the smaller, more correct smooth movements will yield you
greater accuracy and results when you’re pilot–considered to be the golden rule amongst pilots, pitch
plus power equals performance is simply obtained by holding a constant airspeed and a constant
pitch attitude. This will yield you either a constant straight level flight or will yield
a constant descend or ascend in your aircraft.
