There are quite a few tutorials out there, but, check out the following link - it's a low key clear run-down on BC localizer approaches. ... aches.html

As well, the key to flying the BC approach is accuracy in terms of turns, airspeed and altitude. On the BC you don't have a glideslope to work with (such as with ILS), but if the airfield has VASI (Visual Approach Slope Indicator) lights [all red = too low, all white = too high, red & white = on a glidescope for the runway], you can use these in conjunction with your airspeed and altitude to visually "glide" down to the runway. Just note that there are quite a few types of VASI available (wikipedia them!).

Finally, practice practice practice - you'll find that eventually it will be quite easy to master!

Whether you are using FS9 or FS10, go to the flight school (flying lessons) or look it up in the Learing center. Every thing you may want to know is there, it just needs to be discovered.
