Exhibit: Can I learn to fly in a flight sim?
In spite of all this (and more I've forgotten, I'm sure), taking flight lessons has been one of the best things I've ever done. It has given me a tremendous feeling of accomplishment to have reached this point, even while recognizing that I still have a lot to learn.
I've always enjoyed learning new things and challenging my mind and body to do things that don't seem especially easy or natural - it was actually fun to be a student again, to be so awkward at first and to overcome the fact that I'm by no means a natural pilot or even especially coordinated or observant.
Sometimes this was frustrating, but I kept my sense of humor and confessed to my limitations and got help when I needed it. Flying truly teaches you to look at things from new perspectives - and not only from the obvious ones like "high up." I highly recommend it! "
