    I'm not familiar with the structures you're talking about. I went into Google Earth, street view, on the west side of Miami Int'l and while I found the "rabbit," street lights, cranes and radio...

    I've not flown Flightgear for a while, but last time I checked it was well short of FSX in almost every aspect, though a very few things were better. It IS open source and free (in both senses of the...

    Not having the A2A 172, I don't know how real it is, and cannot compare with it, but I've been very pleased with the Carenado Baron 58. I will say, though, that I have yet to encounter an FSX twin...

    Nope, not when O2 is available. Chances are it could reach at least 25,000 feet, though I suspect the legal ceiling is somewhat lower, especially with just a cannula. According o at least one source,...

    Boy! Do I know what you mean! There are few I can trust enough that way, and none are anywhere near new.

    Also, you've described the differences very nicely, except that I'd say that the Piper wing...

    Within FSX I doubt you'd notice the difference, depending though on how the developer set up the flight characteristics -- it's possible for them to eliminate the propwash affecting the horizontal...

    Or alternatively, you might learn to fly smaller aircraft first, such as the C-172/C-182, perhaps using the lessons provided with the sim, then later transition into the larger birds. But if you just...

    I've got utx v2 -- got it at half price, since I'm a V1 user. I downloaded both versions, and the same "key" works for both FSX and P3D. I mostly like it, though there are a few rough spots since...
