What do I need for Flight Simulation?

I get a LOT of questions from people at my shows - "What do I need so I can do that??".  Not a whole lot, actually.  First you'll need to choose a simulator software (or two, or three...). Next you'll want to make sure your computer is up to snuff. Then you'll want to choose a controller or two (yoke and/or joystick, rudder pedals, etc.) to fly the planes with. Finally, you'll want to check out some addons to make the experience even better. I've pictured some of your best choices here. Pass your mouse over the images below for a description/review of each product, or click on them to purchase at the best price available.
