RealFlight/Phoenix Simulator Flying Lessons

I've always known that this hobby is best when handed from person to person, and these days we have so much more power to do that than we ever had before. One way, which has been proven in awesome fashion by "CaptJac" with his Phoenix Simulator Lessons, is by training people to fly using simulators online. This is such a simple idea, it's no surprise that it works so well. Both RealFlight and Phoenix feature a voice chat function and a text chat function, which is essential for training and works fairly well in my (limited) experience.

However, I am a fairly busy person, as we all seem to be these days. I don't want to do this alone! I know that many experienced pilots out there have Phoenix or RealFlight and would be willing to help beginners get their skids off the ground. So, I propose if you are a teacher, post your information (sim version, time available, etc) and if you're a student, please contact us by posting here and we'll help you out!

I'm available in the evenings certain days more likely on weekends though, Mountain Time, USA. I'm old and I like to get to bed by 11.
I have RealFlight 5.5, 3.5, and Phoenix (3.0 as of today, free download)
I can teach up to basic 3D. I can train for airplanes too, up to 3D.
I use a modified RADD's method for beginners, and progress from there.
My teaching style is very active, and I favor drills and pattern flying which clearly shows your mistakes. I feel that this gives the student the best chance at realistic self-assessment when the instructor isn't available.

Hehe... I don't know, have to think about that

One thing I'm working on today is creating an airport for RealFlight, which will be based on the "Flight School" airport, but I'm going to lay out cones and boxes and such, so we have a reference for some drills I like to have folks do. With the airport editor, you can hang objects in mid-air, so you can make rings to fly through and such.

Bumped for the after-holiday crowd...

Isn't there anyone who wants to learn 3D on Phoenix or RealFlight? It is winter time, you know, people...
