i suggest you start out in the 182s and gradually work up in stages cessna-learjet-boeings, if i were you, id get a little bit used to VFR/IFR flying as well, as it comes in extremely useful later on.
dont worry about not being the greatests, we all started off that way, i have well over 1000 flying hours in FS (i tend to stay away from the extras/sopwith and schweizer) and stick with the more Friendly aircraft to fly.
i suggest using a joystick too (2 weeks ago id rather die than use a joystick, but now id swear by one) you just have to get used to using one, i did keyboard flying for most of my flying, but now joystick flying is much more better, better response, better feel etc.
if u want ne flying tips, im your guy

If want it realistic..get a Flight-Yoke..I have one and I love it , if you want a Joystick be sure to get a "Digital" one such as the MS SIDEWINDER etc..because they are very precise...you dont have to calibrate them. Also , start of with the Cessnas , they are easy to fly , also I think the 737 is quite easy, that what I remember but I "flightsim" since the 98 came out...thousands of hours.

Agree with GRZ-AIR on the aircraft. I love the Cessna's particularly the Caravan which can be a real beast at times. In FS2k2, steer clear for the 182RG and Learjet in particular as they have just been dumped straight in from FS2k, no virtual cockpits and they don't look as good. Also the Lear is practically unflyable. I commonly use the Cessna's or the Orbit 737.
