Fly, Cessna, Fly!

One of the many things I missed in my life is learning how to fly an aircraft. The good thing is there is Infinte Flight, a flight simulator that is the next best thing to controlling a real plane. You start selecting an aircraft type, like a small Cessna. Next you choose a location and some basic weather options. Then you’re transported to the cockpit, with a beautiful view of the sky and ground and a display of the important aircraft controls. The sheer number of buttons and dials is kind of daunting, but the app has introductory lessons for guidance. As you fly the ground is shown in pretty persuasive detail, as are mountains and seas. The app costs $ 5.00. If you share the dream of being a pilot, it's the cheapest way to make it come true.
