    I DID read what you actually said.



    Perhaps to you the phrase "real-world flight training" means only actual logged time, but to me (and I suspect to many others, as well) it means training...

    I've not flown that one, but Scatterbrain's post indicates it's not the aircraft. Real aircraft don't take kindly to abrupt yanking on the controls, and aircraft such as Extra, Pitts, etc. react to...

    It does improve the situation considerably, such that I never normally notice anything "popping up." However, that's not saying that nothing ever shows up (generally when it's very small), or that...

    FS is a computer program which is centered around trying to simulate flying. But when I fly real airplanes, I see trees, houses, farms, cars, trucks, tractors, people, etc. Since the sim does so...

    There are a bunch of good comments above, but I'd like to emphasize one particular thing mentioned above: don't expect FS to behave as real aircraft do. For procedures training it's GREAT! For trying...
