It is important to be honest with yourself, understand your real objectives and choose the right system according to your needs. You can't expect for $50 to get the same kind of experience that a pro pilot in US Air Force academy would get, but you will learn some basic things and get a general idea of flying.

That is especially true in military and aviation industry where changes in climate and weather conditions are of ultimate importance.

Many people today have dreams of flying and would like to start a career in aviation industry. The cost of training academies and flying schools is huge and the risk of failure is also very high.
