After 4 years and 85 hours I finally have my (Canadian) Recreational pilot permit which is broadly similar to a Sport pilot. So here I am with a new permit struggling to find the cash to fly regularly as well as seeing the summer coming to an end accompanied by a long wet, west coast winter ( I live in Vancouver, BC). I fear I will lose my skills pretty quickly!
So, here are some questions:
Will MS flight sim X help me maintain my skill level or is it just for kids?
I have NO idea how realistic, or not it might be?
How good a computer I might need?
Can I fly a real mission from my home airport to another locally, and if so, will I see an accurate depiction of real life?
Would love to hear from anyone out there who is a pilot and uses a sim programme as well, i read all the hype on the MS website and on simming sites but I don't see too much from real pilots. . . .
