...a sims a sim. i myself think different than dave does. i think that after you've become an intermediate flyer they not only are dull (nothing like the real thing at all. no rush. no involment. they just arent the same), but can, in my opinion, sort of give you a 'false' sense of security. they have a weird little way of subconciously letting you keep your guard down while really flying as if crashes were irrelevant. at least for me. ive wrecked due to pilot error more when i flew sims on my off time than when i dont touch them. go figure. although, if your still a beginner, i feel that they are a great tool just to get your basic flying skills honed a bit. the fms sim is free and just as fun (i consider them more a video game than anything) as the others. but, this is just my opinion so go for whatever floats your boat!
