    Mike, if you get your hands on a computer with FSX and can purchase the Flight1 C162 then I would recommend it. Don't let my frustration with the software prevent you from getting it, because despite my frustration with the technical end of things, I still think that it models the real thing very nicely. I think this is especially true for the dashboard. This is probably the best thing about the software. There are some things that the G300 on the simulator does not do, which you can do with the real thing. Nevertheless, it does help familiarize you with procedures. I remember doing a 30 min flight with my CFI and we were programming the GPS. He was having some difficulties figuring out something, I help as I knew exactly what to do, having learned it in the sim software.

    I'm hoping to get in the EAA Academy and they're using 162's. I won't be using a flight sim to learn how to fly but I thought if I could find an accurate model of the C162 I could at least take a look at the panel, go over procedures, ect. I don't know if the 162's come from the factory with a 'standard' panel but is the models panel layout the same as the one you flew in?

    A heads up for an old thread.
    The Flight1 C162 is now free and it has an installer for Steam & P3D v3.
