I have it too and it'll blow you away!
BUT . . . . .
Just make sure you get the right PC.
Don't go out and buy a 1GB 8mb RAM and 8Mb Graphics card as you'll need to do a lot of upgrading!

Here are the minimum requirments:
Windows 98/ME -64mb RAM
Windows 2000/XP - But must have 128mb RAM.

300 Mhz processor

750MB Hard drive

8mb/3D Accelerator card. But believe me, to get the best graphics, go for a 32mb or even a 64MB!

Good luck!

I will have a Pentium 4 with 1.8 Ghz, 256 MB Ram, 64 MB Graphics card!

Is it hard to learn to fly(on FS)???

Any tips? (Which aircraft or airport)

My friend told me O'Hare is great for landing.

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  Smile

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.

Well..have fun

When I joined A.net it was still free, haha ;).

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.
