Mac wonders if games like Microsoft's Flight Simulator do too good job of satisfying the flying itch, so that they actually work against the goal of getting new pilots into the fold. I hope I can offer a corollary: My son began simulation car racing online about six years before he received his driving permit. Those over-the-top simulation experiences have not dampened his appetite for actual driving. Of course, we did need to buy a fast car to ease the transition. But life is about sacrifices, right?
