The full release:

The full text of three classic flight simulation books are available
online for the first time at FlightSimBooks.com: the "13MIKE" trilogy
-- Flights of 13MIKE, IFR Flights of 13MIKE, and Airienteering with
13MIKE by Fred J. Calfior and Douglas W. Miller.

Published in 1994 and 1995, the three books offer unique cross-country
flights designed to challenge sim pilots of all experience levels.
Flights of 13MIKE focuses on visual flight, while IFR Flights of 13MIKE
is geared toward more experienced pilots. The third book, Airienteering
with 13MIKE, offers challenging "orienteering" flights in a
choose-your-own-adventure style.

The three books, which total almost 900 printed pages, cover versions
5.0 and 5.1 of Microsoft Flight Simulator for the PC.
