We have had record monsoon this year so built a flight sim and learning how to fly for real (on the sim) Going through ground school now and learning the art of talking to ATC. WOW, just completed a flight from John Wayne to Palm Springs using Pilot Edge. This is a subscription for flight sim users where you talk to ATC (Air traffic control) and you have to do everything like you were in a real aircraft. I even set my squawk to the freq and they saw me on the runway, in the air and as I approach Palm Springs in which I changed to Palm Springs tower to request clearance to land. It is a lot harder to fly when you have to follow the rules. LOL
