I just talked myself out of this AGAIN. I can't justify spending between $5000 and $6000 for a basic flight simulator even though I can log approaches in it (with a two month lookback). The cost of the sim is worth about 75 hours in my own plane or (!!!) 275 hours renting the local - and much better - BATD at the airport for $20/hour. Does anyone around here use one of those for instrument currency and proficiency at home? Are there cheaper options?
