Your best starter plane imo is the hobbyzone champ.

once you have mastered the basics, step into a Parkzone T-28; that plane will teach you everything you need to know before stepping into more advanced models.

With the flight sim, if you are using a controller similar (or the same :-) as the one you'll use to fly the real model, then yes it's very much the same.
My grandson got good on the sim and when it came to flying the real thing... he could do it just fine. Even made a good landing first time.
If you try to learn with a keyboard, or anything else not the same as the actual Tx, that will be useless.
You have to educate your thumbs so they know what to do without you thinking about what they should do.
Think riding a bike. You don't think about steering, you just do it. Get your thumbs that smart on the sim and you'll be fine.

Wiskers is right.I learned on FMS a free flight sim but it is hooked up to the controler I use on my trainer, Hobbico SuperStar 40 I might add it is a great trainer as well. I have several nitros and a few electric planes, the SuperStar was my first real rc. You might want to look into a Nexstar, or something like that. A high wing plane. good luck with it.
