    Ant's Eaglet. It's cheap, easy to fly, but with some more advanced features to dig into when you are ready. It's a really lovely model with lots of ways to configure it.

    The PMDG thing is called Global Flight Operations. It's an ACARS system, but beyond that I don't know much as I don't fly long haul or anything bigger than a 737. It's primarily of interest to PMDG...

    PMDG has some supposed big announcement tomorrow (June 9). Maybe it will be a new flight sim? I'd wait to see what happens before making any big investments.
