It's the next best thing to being up there

Why use Microsoft Flight Simulator for real-world flight training? Because it gives you the best possible head start and enables you to learn at your convenience. Flight Simulator provides scenario-based training that lets you practice handling almost any situation. It offers advantages you don't even get in a real plane—the option to set up any kind of weather or equipment failures, stop midway and redo a procedure, or get the view from outside the airplane. FSX isn't a game. It's a training mission for virtual and real aviators alike.
