    In one sentence describe the single most beneficial aspect ...

    of flight simulation in terms of how it has helped you as a pilot?

    For me, setting up altitude height in the circuit and especially on final.

    It lets me try things I really, REALLY shouldn't do in a real airplane.

    There's a porn analogy here, but I think Hal would cancel the posting...... :-)

    I am going to amend and revise my previous post. For me as a pilot, my original comment stands. But, I have a different comment as a flight instructor, based on out chapter's flight simulator set up. (Long intro for one sentence.)

    To introduce Young Eagles and rusty pilots to the fundamentals of flight and the interaction of flight controls -- before getting into the plane.

    I don't mind that part, it's when Hal sets me down and makes me write "I will not be an ****** on the forum page" two hundred times. That hurts.
