Okay, That is what I will work on to see if it is a fix. I am brand new to this and I have to admit to going a little overboard in collecting different models, so it may take awhile to iron out. As a side note, I was never into gaming at all, but I find this to be very challenging and rewarding, along with the simple pleasure of learning something new. I may even try to go for a pilot's license irl. Anyway, thanks a ton for all your help, I can't believe how generous this community is--I was never made to feel like a "noob" and that seems to be rare! And I am reasonably certain that this is not the last time I will be asking for help. Thanks a lot guys/gals! Don
If you want to learn to fly there are several options
First of all this will not be cheap by a long shot
You have to have training and that is the most expensive part depending upon how quick you can learn you will need a minimum of 8 hours of dual flight time before you can solo.
after you solo you will only have to pay for renting the aircraft . You have to have at least 40 hours of flight time before a FAA person will sit with you to give you the final test.
If you know nothing about aircraft than i would suggest you go to a ground school as that will help you a lot.
I started to learn but had to give it up as it was to costly and that was a long time ago prices have doubled if not tripled by now.
But there are schools such as Emery Riddle and others and you can even take a loan out.
Some 40 years ago I paid $20.00 an hour for the aircraft and another $30.00 an hour for the trainer and that was in a single engine Piper Cherokee
I had started in a Cessna 50 but did not like the way it stalled it scared the you know what out of me. But that is because it is a high wing aircraft (The wings are above the fuselage ) Most Cessna's are this way
but Piper's are low wing aircraft and when they stall it is like going over a speed bump in a car no FISH TAILING which you better know how to correct or else.
This is by far the easiest aircraft I ever flew. The hardest part was getting used to steering with your feet when taxing you want to turn the yoke but that will not work on the ground.
