That manual is very old and is available for legacy purposes only. The app it references is no longer available. We do not have any dedicated manuals for the default aircraft so far. Your best bet is going to be searching online for tutorials and documentation made by other flight simmers. I know it's nearly impossible to fly without all the proper equipment though (I tried just using the mouse and it was a trainwreck)! ;)
Here's an old tutorial from X-Plane 9 that might help get you started. Or try looking on YouTube for videos like this one.
