Hello;I finally got a working concept of flying my 737 and other heavies BUT"......... I haven't managed to get my arms around navigating around airports I have read up on it but when I get to or want to depart from an airport I end up in the grass, through the terminal or on the highway (no joke) anyhow if ithere are any good references (for dummies) or web sites where I can get information on this I would really appreciate it. I have taken off, navigated to my destinations, programmed the FMC and landed iwhat seems like a million times. I really get messed up going to a gate or from a gate. The builtin ATC only get me more flustered. Okay so now that I have exposed myself. PLEASE Hellllllllllpp !!!!!!!!Thanks MuchGranpa (Ron)

Many airports have charts published that include a map of the airport.Search for them on the internet.The sites of the various vatsim regions list charts as well.You can also use the progressive taxi option after ATC gives you a route.That will draw a line that you can simply follow.If you write down the route that ATC gives you then you can also watch the signs that mark the various taxiways.

DBS has an addon program that will give you a GPS representation of the airport, all you have to do is select your departure runway before takeoff and after you land you can stop at the taxiway and select your gate at the arrival airport. It works just like the GPS in your car. I found it very useful until I got used to using airport charts. You can download PDF files of airport charts at http://www.airnav.com/ for US airports.The last time I checked DBS was selling there program for $14.95 their Website is: http://www.dbsim.com/
