To learn how to fly, click Missions on the Main menu, and then click Tutorial Missions.

Here are the basics of landing:

  1. Reduce power - Move the throttle lever back.
  2. Lower the flaps - As airspeed decreases, press F7 to lower the flaps.
  3. Lower the landing gear - If the landing gear are retracted, press G to the lower them.
  4. Point the nose at the runway
  5. Maintain approach speed (varies with aircraft). As you cross the edge of the runway, reduce the throttle to idle.
  6. Flare - Before you touch the runway, gently raise the nose of the aircraft to maintain level flight, and then touch down.
