You really could use it.


FSX supposedly supports copilots, but I'm not going to throw everything I have
with FS 2004 away just to get that.

As I've said, it sounds like you don't have your sim configured correctly.

I was going to ignore you but your stupidity really 'takes the
biscuit'.!!!!!!!!!!
There is NO WAY IN HELL you can compare using the sim, as Roger has
stated, to real life experiences.

Pc configured correctly or not the pc CANNOT generate the feeling of
fear and anxiety.
You WILL NOT die if you crash.
If you get lost in the dark or poor weather what is the worst that can
happen - 'You have crashed' - Wow I'm terrified now ;-(
You WILL NOT feel the forces of G force as you climb / descent.
You WILL NOT feel the motion of the aircraft rolling.
You WILL NOT become disorientated in a spin etc due to enginer
failure.

You WILL NOT learn to backdown you ignorant little man!!!!!!!!!!

Even motion simulators cannot generate all this as at the end of the
day you know YOU WILL NOT die in it. Same can be said for 'training
exercises' the special forces do to teach them what to do if captured
by the enemy. These 'exercises' will not kill them so the feeling of
fear wont be part of the equation and DOES NOT compare to the real
thing.

FS2004 is afterall a GAME, like it or lump it. When I use it I AM NOT
flying a plane.

Those that believe they are and are qualified to fly IRL need to seek
help or join the Mooneys.

It is amazing indeed, how some have trouble separating what is reality, to
what is not.

But following that logic, people who learn to drive with a manual transmission
should have more trouble than those who learn to drive with an automatic, and
yet that does not seem to be the case. They both seem to learn at about the
same speed.

In the UK if you learn to drive using a car with an automatic gear box
you ARE NOT PERMITTED to drive a manual geared car. You must take
lessons and an examination to do so.

If you look at MX's profile it would appear he is NEVER off the pc
judging by the amount of posts he makes to the most ludicrous of
groups that no doubt he is an 'expert' in including rape, women,
feminism, abortion, religion to name a few that his 16492 posts have
gone too.

This so called fantasy man needs to get a life

Whys that when, as you have stated already, there is no difference to
flying in the sim and that of real life.

Ibby

Indeed, if I were a real pilot and I had just spent $2 million on a Baron, I
think I might be afraid to even fly it.

I am proud to be among the tribe of Mooney lovers --mine is an M20J
-- and resent you suggesting a guy who disturbs huge numbers of
electrons as he pretends to fly, join our ranks.

You had better go and get your tail put on correctly! Why, you might
even be among that group of pilots who have their wings in the wrong
place.

Why do you need insurance?
--
Transpose mxsmanic and gmail to reach me by e-mail.


So if you crash into someone elses property who pays for that?

If you hit my car, damaged it or God forbit killed one of my
passengers how would I be compensated?
Will your little 'fund' payout?
You are BREAKING the law if you dont have any for a motorised
vehicle.
Insurance isn't just to protect your assets, they are for others too.

Sorry Tony, I wasn't refering to the Mooney aircraft. Didn't even
cross my mind. I was refering to the Mooney religous cult in the
States that seemed to have a lot of questionable practices

But learning to drive with a manual transmission only takes a day. I suspect
that learning to move a gear lever or a flaps lever is comparable.


Do you drive MX???????? - or is this another fantasy

If so you should be aware that there is more to learning to drive than
just moving a stick and rotating that round thing in front of you.
There are rules to be learnt (well outside France), you have to learn
how to handle the car, your perception to the outside world in
relation to your speed, position etc on the road. When to speed up,
slow down. How to handle emergencies. Same goes for an aircraft.
