I have a friend who was a pilot student and even introduced me to flying schools, and we used to play FlightSim, not together, but we enjoyed playing and share thoughts, planes, etc, etc... So, one time I went to visit him and his wife at his house, and we decided to play flight sim on his PC
, since I wanted to test his flight yoke (I didn't had one) and so, we went on to fly. He already had more than 30 hours of training in real life, and I was just having fun on the sim.
When I'm on the sim, I like to look around the scenery and well, just enjoy that great thing of 3D scenery .. (ahh! It was FS2000, and was my first time with it, since I was still with FS98 in my computer) So, as I looked around (side views) he started yelling "KEEP LOOKING AHEAD, FORGET ABOUT THE SCENERY, YOU'RE GONNA CRASH THE PLANE, YOU'RE TOO HIGH, LOOK AHEAD!!! LOOK AHEAD!! YOU'RE TO
LOW", etc, etc, etc.. So at the end, the experience was not so pleasant and fun. I decided it was better to keep flying FS98 at home, alone and with the joystick! As an opposite note, I do enjoy when beginners, who know nothing about Aviation come home and just marvel about how great FlightSim looks, and how hard is to aim at a runway and land.. then I'll go and show 'em and man, we really have a good time!
