Being a real world IFR rated pilot, I think I can safely say that NDB approaches are probably some of the most difficult approaches out there. If you've read the theory and how to perform the approach, the only thing left to do is practice, practice, practice. I have never had to do one in actual weather conditions in real life, and to be perfectly honest I would be very tempted to go to an alternate airport with any other kind of approach if an NDB approach was the only option available at my destination.

Practice on Tims Air Nav (Google it). Remember, the head falls, the tail rises. Make the head fall to the course (or bearing) you want to fly, and adjust the heading to keep it there.

What's the name of the indicator that has the NDB stuff in it? I can't say I've seen them on too many panels other than small props.

I also wouldn't bother with an NDB approach to BON. Isn't the weather there usually fine for visual? Otherwise divert to somewhere with ILS or fine weather.

Yeah, but does it appear in the EHSI or PFD?

Generally, only on payware.

In newer aircraft, the "bearing pointer" can be set on the PFD, usually to follow any of a variety of sources (VOR, NDB, FMS/GPS).

In older aircraft, there was a separate instrument (RMI), which I believe is on the FS2004 default 737.
