I’ve been flying regional jets and in general aviation for 12 years. But your flying job will always restrict you to the type of flying and destinations that your employer needs, and unless you’re Bezos or Zuck, you can’t own every genre of aeroplane and fly everywhere. With Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, I got a taste of those other worlds.
One of the first things I did in the sim was fly down 5th Avenue, Death Star trench run-style in a DA20. In the real world, the consequences would have been severe and certain national defence interests would have gotten involved. I would never do this in real life. So for actual pilots, the sim is a massive playzone limited only by the beefiness of the PC and the willingness to ignore established regulations of flight.
