how many years have you been flying and how many gallons of fuel have you used, and give an honest answer on your skill level and if you used a simulator or not and witch one.
i will start off.
almost a year......
8 gallons of fuel
small 3d stuff.
realflight G2


please do as i did. i find it interesting to see how much fuel it takes people to get to a certain level. assuming there was a flight sim or not.
i beleive the flight sim helps but it is different in real life. it just depend if you do it on the computer and are to frightened to do it for real. the way i see it is if you don't try something you will never move forward with skills.

18 years, with some minor breaks.

Boat loads of fuel.

Aerobatics and Mild 3D.

In the beginning, a Dave Brown simulator, but it wasn't much good!

Started flying in 1978 (we don't need no stinkin' gyro!)

Easily over a thousand gallons (wanna buy a used engine?)

Skill level? (Who is this Soha guy?)

Sim? Aerochopper I think. Version 1989. ( Darn kids think they invented this stuff.)
