I am new to the flight sim expierience with only a month on my MSFS2002. I am starting to get bored with the same old ATC a/c and would like to fly in a multi-player environment. My questions are these:
1) Is there an on-line community of real-time flyers?
a. Do they have different communities (commercial airlines/private pilots/military/helos)?
2) Is it possible to join/fly on-line for free?
a. If not what is a fair price?
3) What lvl of expierience is expected before joining an on-line community?
4) Is it safe(virus/security) to fly on-line with others?
5) What is a VA airline?
Any constructive input would be great.
