Itís cheaper and less maintenance than a boat or private aircraft and definitely less than a new wife. But ďmadly excitedĒ?

Not so much.

Good for you man. Nice you love it.

However I personally canít think of anything less I want to do on days off than sit in front of a computer, playing airline pilot.

Man, most folks on this forum ***** about flying the real thing let alone Flight Sim.

I used to love Flight Simulator but after FS9 I can't justify spending the money on the computing power necessary to get the most out of the game. I had FSX but lost interest after struggling with low frame rates.

Thatís my exact issue. Iíve got the will power but not the time or money to spend on a good computer. Maybe once Iíve got that first real job and graduate from instructing.
