Xplane is more realistic but Microsoft flight sim is more fun because of all the missions you can participate in. My flight school had both and I found myself using xplane more then MS solely because I wanted some good practice when I was working on my instrument rating....

I fly for united express and today has been a cluster because today is the implementation date for FAR 117 which is the new rest rules for crews. Most airlines (mainly the regionals) are understaffed or didn't understand the impact so today has been a cluster to say the least. If you're pissed ask f...

I'm towards the end of a marathon game that I've been playing for 2 weeks now, spent over 10 hours on it already and I probably have another 2-3 left. This game has so many ways you can win, especially if you get the new expansion, that as soon as you finish a campaign you will launch right into the...

I haven't touched it in over 2 months. City sizes are way too small, and the city specialties/connections didn't work like they were supposed too. I think they've fixed some of the bugs but I still won't pick it back up until they give us bigger cities. Stay away in my opinion....

I think they actually crashed just short of the runway, and the rumor is fuel starvation. This is a pretty terrible airline that is banned by the EU so maybe change your travel itinerary if you're thinking about going to Indonesia with them. ...

Depends on the plane you use to conduct your training in and the frequency that you fly. The minimum times for part 61 is 40 hours total, 10 of which are solo; most people finish up between 40-50.
