For starters, a bit of backstory:
Recently I joined a flight school at my home airport. I did a short 1 hour 20 minute lesson in a full motion sim. Overall, I was told by the instructor I did very well. I’m probably going to continue lessons at this flight school.
To better my skills as a pilot, I’d like to know, how does the C172 flight model compare to how the aircraft handles in real life? I don’t want to spend 60 bucks on XPlane, so is there a way I can practice with the aircraft in IF before going up in the air?
(FYI, the program in the simulator was FSX)
