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...

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.
