Build remarkable proficiency and confidence at home. The Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course lets you practice every private pilot flight lesson before experiencing it in a real airplane.
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!
This bundled set includes the X-Plane 10 simulator software by Laminar Research. If you already own X-Plane 10, purchase the X-Plane Flight Training Course standalone software here.
The Gleim X-Plane Flight Training Course is now available with a multi-user license! If you operate a flight school, academic/collegiate, or STEM aviation program, check our options for use with multiple students and instructors.
These release notes are a log of the recent notable changes made to the X-Plane Flight Training Course (XFTC) project, including records of changes such as bug fixes, new features, etc.
We 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.
We started with X-Plane 10 (bundled with this set), 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.
