    Also, research "what is the best pc for flight simulators"

    At least a reasonably powerful "Gaming" computer is needed - expect to pay A LOT MORE for a suitable computer, than you will pay for the base Flight Simulator program. Then expect to pay extra for additional (better?) add-on aircraft etc.

    A good resource for educating yourself about PC based Flight Simulators are the many Flight Simulator websites..

    Microsoft's FSX, Lockheed-Martin's Prepar3d (which I use) and X-Plane are the three most common ones out there for PCs. As Geoff says, you'll need more computer than the office supply $500 special.

    You could check out this game came, it out recently (on 10th October) - Take Off - The FlightSimulator. It's biggest advantage is low requirements and price.
    Although it is not complicated simulator as Take Off is a conversion from mobile. It's more like an arcade/simulator with various missions and ability to run your own airlines.

    Here is the game Steam shop webiste:

    I would never buy anything you needed to play online, unless you live in a major city with fast internet. I purchased Microsoft's FSX with both disks and book, added a joystick and rudder petals. Works fine on Windows 7 Home 64 bit and a good graphics card. It is Not a Gaming computer but one I built and keep updated. Learning and that's all good. Yes I plan on getting real flight instruction.

    Also I check on here a lot, and it seems like there are about 3 people using this Forum?? Its as close to being dead as it could be. Just wondering IF I made a mistake joining EAA, is there a more active Forum or Website?
