Amazing videos; comprehensive and full of details you won't find in any written documents. The pace is good and the material is presented in a structured way that breaks things down so it's easily digestible. Other than the download links still not being available, I've had no issues with accessing the content as of December 2022.
Really informative and detailed
Although this video is based on the Majestic Q400 for P3D simulator, I have no issues using it as a tutorial for X-Plane 11 FlyJSim Q4XP. On top of that watching this video gives me a feeling as if I am in the sitting on the jump seat, very immersive my compliments.
I enjoyed the courses, although I noticed that the videos are from years ago (still in FSX) and do not portray the aircraft in a more recent platform like P3RD v5. For example, the landing behavior of the aircraft in P3D v5 is different than in FSX. The videos need to be updated to a more modern platform, FSX is way too old.
Other than the issue with the videos being too old, I enjoyed the courses and learned many tips and tricks that are easily transferable to other aircraft. The idea of developing courses like this one is great and needs to be continued. I will purchase other courses when I move to other aircraft, such as the Airbus.
One suggestion: it would be great to have a full tutorial on the great Leonardo's Maddog, perhaps the best aircraft ever developed for a simulation. The aircraft has become quite popular and Leonardo does provide extremely detailed documentation and manuals for the serious simmers. I would, however, purchase a full series of courses from your company if provided by a real pilot, as with the great Dash 8.
Overall, I am satisfied with the courses and will continue to keep an eye on additional courses, as I move to other aircraft. Cheers!
Wow, just wow! After endless Youtube videos that never really get to the point I have finally found out how to go from cold and dark to a perfect landing every time. My home airport of EGHI Southampton is now the base for a lot of near perfect flying. Landings that were more hit & miss now means more rubber on tarmac then ever before. The only comment for improving these videos would be being able to download what's being explained perhaps as written notes. In addition the Aurasim website is not working, but this is not a problem as I use a clever app on my phone called DH8D Told for my TO calculations. Can't wait to move onto the FO training once I get some more hours under my belt.
The Q400 cadet training program form Airline2Sim helped me understand the many differences from flying (virtually) the standard tubeliners from Boeing and Airbus.
Being able to see from a pilots perspective everything from start up to shutdown made the flying of this more enjoyable and less of a chore.
Very pleased with your excellent online response and assistance in setting up my previously purchased Dash8 training programme into the new site. This is a very much better site giving easy access to the videos.
I was so pleased with your response, that I ordered the new Airbus program. Even though I don’t fly Airbus as much as the Boeing737. Can’t wait for the 737 package.
All of the Airline2Sim training programs are beyond excellent. They are cram-packed with good information, yet extremely entertaining and enjoyable to watch.
Just to be able to get into the real pilot's head and find out what he/she is thinking during every phase is pure gold.
Ben is truly a pro at interviewing pilots and relaying to the viewer the feeling that you are sitting with them and actually part of the conversation.
I highly recommend any and all of the Airline2Sim training programs, and I can because I have all of them.
I feel that if you love flight simulation, these programs are a wonderful value that you will enjoy over and over again.
Great training for an awesome sim.
You can't beat it!
awesome program, well done guys !!

Great training videos. I learned a lot. Looking forward to FO Training.
AMAZING !! Thank you for this !!
Hey guys. Fantastic fantastic and fantastic! Just one thing a little slower and clearer identification of button and switch use. Otherwise perfect...so yes buy now!
Awesome series of videos :) definitely interested in watching the First Officer set when it comes out too! Keep up the good work!
Josh is the sort of instructor we would all like to have in the real world - Great training package. Well worth the money!!!
This is a must have when flying the Dash 8! Actually its a must have even without the plane, thats how good the quality of this product is.
Great series! Wish there were more! Thanks for putting this together. Great personalities too, was easy to watch and enjoy as well as learn.
Outstanding series. Great quality!
Why are there so many 5 Star ratings???? I guess it's because it is really good! Nice Work!
very good series of videos, hopefully the first of many series
Awesome training course! The quality is excellent. The pace of learning is perfect. I just wish I had the same set of add-ons that they used, as it makes it very realistic. Having a qualified and experienced real world Dash-8 pilot is invaluable. His input adds further to the realism. Let's hope more of these courses are developed soon, for other FSX aircraft.
This has been invaluable! A superb quality product that has made me start flying the Dash again after i gave up. Without this series of videos the Dash would have been sat on the shelf to gather dust. Worth every single penny and more as its the only aircraft i fly now, nice one!
Seriously good stuff! I don't even own the plane, but have got a great head-start when I do from these videos! Well produced and edited making them an absolute pleasure to watch. Thank you
You're only getting half the value of the Dash-8 if you don't buy these videos!
Worth every cent...... excellent Q400 training. A must have for Majestic Q400 owners.

I would have paid £100+ for this - excellent
Great atmosphere in the cockpit with Ben and Josh ! This is a fantastic way for training. I highly recommend this. Thanks a lot for your good help for flying the Q400!
This video is a must in my opinion as are all the airline2sim Q400 videos. I will be studying hard to get the most out of the Q400.
Can't wait for the next round of videos. These vids are still enjoyable every time you watch them. Well done!
Absolutely superb! I cannot imagine anything more 'real as it gets' except by actually being in the real aircraft with you guys! I have just got to get the Q400 into my flight simulator fleet now.

Absolutely Fantastic! Great job Ben Weston and Josh Harrison!
