Actually, when I'm in training mode on FS
, I don't bother with taxiing--I just set up to be on the departure runway. In FS
, I only taxi for fun. I typically don't worry about good scenery either, as the visability is generally set to approach minimums.
Anyway, I find it useful to shoot approaches to the same airports that I utilize in real life, so that I better know what to expect when I am actually in that situation. Also, I'll only "practice" in the Cessna 172 and 182, as they are the the only FS
airplanes that provides a good enough representation for training purposes. The fire-breathers are fun, but completely dumbed-down. Even the Baron is missing some important stuff. And the Mooney, while quite an attractive airplane in FS
, is nearly uncontrollable in some flight scenarios.
