Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Are there any books that would be helpful for someone who has no experience with computer games or soaring simulators? What equipment is needed? How to proceed. I have done some soaring in the past, but now at 82 I'd like to see if I can get some of the feeling of flying a sailplane without leaving my desk.

A PC capable of running FSX smoothly is required, there should be many recommendations on the web regarding this. There are no special requirements for soaring. For the controls a joystick is required (I'm very happy with the Saitek-PC-Aviator), and I recommend strongly rudder pedals, in particular for gliders.

A large monitor (24" or more, or several monitors) improves wide angle field of view and adds to "immersive" feeling. The lack of wide-angle field of view is one of the most apparent differences in the visual perception for those who know real-world flying.

As you have already real-world gliding experience, there is not much theory to add for simulation. I would do everything as exercised in the past, that will do pretty well, I expect.

bests,

Peter
