I've been using flight simulator since the C64. I look forward to this. Recently had my hard drive wiped and lost FSX Gold (It's an older ThinkPad and the game was installed via disc and paper code for activation...all were lost years ago). I took flight training in 2011 & 2012. Hopefully, this will encourage more to take flight lessons IRL.
