I heard that it can be used to actually learn to fly planes/helicopters/etc.

I even remember a report about some thief who was able to get away on a plane because he learned to use it through this simulator.


So I'm just wondering if it's actually true? I'm always eager to try something new

Depends if you plan on landing.

Then why not actually learn how to fly. In real life. Not in computer land.

I think nowadays they do learn firstly on a sim, not on real plane.
I think it's quite accurate, but i've never known actually how to pilot a plane


Also, im eager to know where your avatar comes from

Landing is still difficult to learn without actual stick time. But MFS does have a lot of stuff to help. Basically the simulation has all the features but the problem is the emulation of the cockpit and the physical forces affecting the aircraft. If you were to build a cockpit around your computer it would be all right I suppose, but lessons would be a safer bet.

Yes it does teach you to fly.I use it,and my brother did to;my brother is a pilot right now because of flight simulator.It's amazingly realistic and is fun to play.I don't play it much any more though,once I found out about guitar...

Because...

I don't have a plane?

It simulates flying and can be considered pretty realistic. I think if you were very good at the game you could land a real plane in decent conditions. In strong crosswinds and heavy rain? I doubt it.

EDIT: It should be noted that actual Pilot lessons are very expensive. 15 minutes in a 747 SIMULATOR costs around £110. Imagine what a single lesson would cost in an actual aeroplane.

Troo, I've been using it for years now and it's pretty realistic, but you don't feel the forces that affect you (a force feedback stick makes it more real but still) and it doesn't prepare you for some basic stuff like ATC/airport charts/etc if you just fly.

This is very true. I work in aviation and there is sooooooo much more pilots have to know than just how to fly the plane.
