HI,

A question that lots of people probably ask. How will Flight Simulator help me fly in real life? I thought it would help me out great. After my first flight, the instructor looked at me and said "Do you have flight simulator?" - "Yes" - "Throw it out!"

... what do you think?.... I haven't really used it since...  Sad

FS2004 is anything from a GAME to a reasonablly serious simulator - depends you you use it.

I use 100% realism and payware add-ons to make the aircraft as real as possible.

Regards,
Craig.

I don't know what level you are at in your flying, but flight simulators are great for instrument training.

I thought that approaches were very easy after doing it for years on flight sim.

Actually the opposite happened with my instructor while flying. He looked over and asked if I have flight simulator. I said yes and, he said "I can tell, you are doing good."

Yes. I still have not had one minute as a real pilot. But all the real pilots i talk to think I atleast have a PPL. FS02 and FS04 has taught me alot. Now as flying the plane. No it does not help. But with the system, had a plane flys IFR Radios Navigation. It is very real and would help you out. When i do my first flight the Instructor will notice that i have FS because i would be able to do what most people do one there like 5th flight on my first. It is good.
