I’m pretty sure the knowledge you seek is in the #tutorials

For flying a real world aircraft?

How to fly a plane: pull stick up, plane goes up. Push stick down, plane goes down. The buttons: they’re to impress the chicks, chicks are complex.

Don’t forget about contacting ATC!! 😀😃😄

That’s also pretty important

It’s actually not that important for the majority of aircraft.

Simple advice. Go to your local airport, find a flight school take a discovery flight and bam that how you fly an airplane

It depends also on what kind of plane you want to fly.
A glider pilot certificate isn’t on the same level as a commercial pilot one (beside what @N1DG said, that’s completely right)

As a basic introduction I’d check out the following:

  1. High level overview of private pilot certification (cost, hours, etc.): https://work.chron.com/much-cost-pilot-license-11624.html
  2. Search tool for flight schools (also has other valuable information): https://www.aopa.org/learntofly/school/index.cfm

Then, reach out to some of the people that have offered to discuss their experience
