Is it worth it if my simulator won’t “feel” like the real airplane?

  • An experienced, real world CFI can help mitigate this, by explaining what things may feel or behave differently in the actual aircraft versus the simulator.  In general, like we discuss here, we do not attempt to train skills that are highly dependent on seat of the pants feeling.
  • Even though the simulator may not react to your control inputs in the same way the real airplane would, this can be a good thing for developing your flexibility as a pilot.  You will have to learn to adapt to multiple aircraft types as you fly new airplanes as a pilot; think of your simulator as being just one of those many aircraft types you will eventually want to learn.
  • We maintain a list of suggested aircraft models to use with superior aerodynamic modeling
