The Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course lets you practice every flight lesson in the Gleim Private Pilot Syllabus book before experiencing it in a real airplane. With pre-flight briefing videos for every lesson, constant corrective feedback, and a detailed post-flight evaluation tool, you receive personalized flight instruction for a fraction of the cost. This course relies on our proven Knowledge Transfer System to prepare you to become a certificated pilot in less time, for less money, and with less frustration than any other system available!How does it work?
We started with X-Plane 10, the world's most comprehensive, powerful, and realistic flight simulator for personal computers.
We then developed our own proprietary software, which integrates with X-Plane. This software is made up of two main components:
All 27 lessons from our Private Pilot Syllabus have been programmed into the course and can be flown as many times as you want. For best results, we recommend you fly through the entire course at least once before beginning your actual flight training. Then, when you finally get into the real airplane, there will be no surprises and your training will feel like a formality.
An airplane is an inefficient classroom - it's noisy, complicated, overwhelming, and expensive. Modern technology allows for better instructional techniques. The Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course brings the classroom back down to the ground, where it should be. Embrace this course, and you will soon be a safe, competent, and confident pilot.

We also highly recommend the use of a control yoke and rudder pedals. While X-Plane does allow you to fly using the mouse, it's much more beneficial to your training to use flight controls that are similar to what you will be using in the actual airplane.
Gleim recommends using peripherals by CH Products or Saitek.
