    It’s amazing to me how many thousands of dollars I see people spending on their flight training that they could save if they were just properly using home simulators.

    The flight sim community is huge and I'm trying to convince more real pilots to take a serious look at flight sims.

    Maintaining proficiency with avionics, communications, muscle memory, and checklists doesn’t just have to happen in the plane at 3,000 ft. You can build those core principles comfortably, and at your own pace, using home flight simulation.
