    Simplify IFR using GPS

    For a quick simplified flight, I input my flight plan in FSX with IFR low altitude airways (Beech Baron), and fly the route with VoxAtc as my ATC. I will be vectored to the approach runway and then set my nav radios for the ILS.
    Simple and accurate. Albeit real world would not just rely on GPS.

    Real world aviation, I have over 2200+ hours, and the majority of it is with VOR's not GPS. My last company had the bare basics and it was a single pilot IFR part 135 job. I dare say, the real world is cheap and uses 30+ year old navigation equipment.

    Too true!
    Something to be said for "Old school" training...
    A working combination of both generations is practical and necessary indeed.
