Ok I have been flying for 3 weeks now. Some of you may remember my first post. it basically stated that IL2 is a real good trainer for actual flight .

Anyway today I took off and was told by my instructor to "follow that Cessna heading south, it's going where we are going". Well subconsciously , after so many countless hours of IL2" I started to line up the plane and close the distance. The instructor told me twice to ease up and maintain distance. I swear it was subconscious. I think I just wanted to shoot that Cessna down!!!

Anyway , I had the extreme pleasure of flying up and down the Florida keys today.

Did you ever think IL2 could measure up to the real thing? ......It does.....I would love to hear other opinions.

I will attempt to post some pics (moderators or forum members feel free to help me out like you did last time if I get it wrong again :-)...thanks in advance...)

I have some short movies of my flights. If anyone can host them let me know. I think they would be valuable to the forum members that are thinking of doing this, not from an instructional point of view but from actually seeing someone else do it...It demystifies it...
