Flight simulators are really popular right now: combine the latest programs like Microsoft Flight Simulator and X-Plane with the latest hardware like the Honeycomb Alpha and Bravo, and you have a powerful tool for flight training and fun. But if you don't approach it with the right mindset, flying a sim can just waste time. In this video, Sporty's John Zimmerman shares four tips for making your next sim session more realistic, from checklists to iPad apps.

When the first consumer flight simulator came to market in 1979, there were very few (if any) takeaways for pilots. As most would assume, today’s simulators are helpful in showing how an airplane reacts in the air (and on the ground), but there are a few lesser known areas of airmanship a simulator can teach.

When looking at student pilot headsets, the first thing to consider is your budget. The saying, “You get what you pay for” is pretty accurate when it comes to aviation headsets. Many student pilots are on a tight budget. This has them looking towards less expensive passive headsets. Most pilots will start out with one of these headsets, then graduate to an active noise canceling headset once they get their license. Their original passive headset then becomes a passenger headset. With that in mind, here are the top four passive headsets for student pilots.
