    You are building a GA sim and you're not an Aussie! That's 2 points right off! (Just kidding)

    Ok, There are some shortcuts you can take to make life easier and keep you flying in the meantime. I'll list a couple and you can look them over.

    In no particular order:

    1. Desktop Aviator
    http://www.desktopaviator.com/
    .
    2. GoFlight
    http://www.goflightinc.com/order/index.php
    .
    3. Simkits
    http://www.simkits.com/
    .
    This is just three of the most popular ones for GA planes. If you go tubes (commercial airliners) there are lots more.

    I strongly suggest you first get Mikes book (Hey Mike! Thats another dollar! :lol ) and read it. After that begin by drawing some fairly detailed plans taking into account how much room you have to build your sim in.

    At least you have others in Florida. I'm all alone here in Hawaii.
