I have found that the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 Manual is very bland. It doesn't include enough information that I need. There is a very useful quick reference on the back of the manual and there's a good glossary included as well so all the terms can be understood. There are approach charts for the main airports of the world that are ok but I have found that I very rarely need to use them because I don’t fly to those airports. There is a lot of information about the aircraft but the section about the panels is a bit hard to follow. There is a very useful section about what you should on take-off, landing and during the flights. But I am still finding it bland about the basics of flying. I have trouble understanding the manual when I am reading it through because the terms are too complicated and when I look in the glossary for them, they are never there. It is a good manual for the people who understand flying but a bit advanced for beginners.
