well, I was going to go to Embry-Riddle, but ended up in med school. I am new to this forum and have a question but i don't know how to get to the gist. Please bear with me.
I've always wanted to fly that bird but how? Are they any really great simulators out there? As I said, I am just staring to jump into the hobby and want to get my license soon, then multi engine. i know I'll never see the real thing but how baout a good sim?
Well, I'm also a rail buff, so i can exchange ideas with you'll if you like.

As to whether there are good sims, FlightSafety Boeing, Seattle WA., has some "full motion" that are basically no different than flying the real thing. Unfortunatly I don't know how much they charge per hour (My contact with FlightSafety was proforma with my employer) but I'm sure you are going to need some deep pockets. Another problem is that much of the time (of this valuable resource) is already commited to airline customers so, even if you can cover the cost, they may not be able to accomodate a "private individual" .
