It seems like a pretty common question on the forums, people just looking for help learning to fly.
I am not a flight instructor, but I am a private pilot (currently inactive IRL). I am in the Western U.S. and usually can make time in the evenings, or sometimes on weekend days.
I’m not asking for money or anything from you. Just offering to assist.
Discord would be the tool for any voice or shared video.
I’m interested in helping new people get started with the basic concepts and techniques of flying, navigation, etc.
It is not my intent to pretend I’m a real instructor, or play a game of who knows the most stuff with other pilots. This is casual, its not real world training. I just want to give people a way to get off the ground and be able to do the flights they want to do, etc.
If you already know how to fly but just want to know about some little procedure or technique, I’m happy to answer if I can, too.
We will start in simple planes and work up from there, so if you don’t have the patience to slow down and learn, I might not be what you’re looking for. But if you really do want to understand a bit, and be able to complete your flights in one piece (even though maybe not exactly as we’d do in real life), then I’d like to help you out.
Shoot me a PM on the forum here if you want to talk more.
******************* New Info below ******************
Having now had some time to talk to a number of you, I wanted to add that when you get in touch, you should expect that I’m going to ask you a bit about any previous sim or real flight experience you have – Or if you have any specific things you want to learn. This is so I don’t waste our time in the sim - so we can get direct to what you want to know. If you’re not sure, don’t be afraid to say so, and I can work with ya.
Also, I will normally try to schedule a time to meet up, and its almost never going to be the instant you get in hit send If you’re just looking for a flying buddy there are lots to be found on the MSFS Discord. I’m trying to have a bit of a plan to get you going the way you want, rather that me just spewing a bunch of info at you.
And again, if your interested - please private message me here on MSFS Forum.
