I used to fly IFR with real world weather before the same flight I would take in real life. Checking the times, intersections, frequencies and WX
, it was pretty close, even the ETA and fuel burn were almost perfect. I would say it really helped me get my instrument rating back in the day, to the extent of getting the procedures down. Flying the airplane IS
very different of course! What do you (people in general) expect to find when going from your air conditioned leather seated quiet PC
to the real deal?!
