Training is slow and the instructors will take you into one of simulators with an instructor and take it for a spin.

$299 for a hour in a full flight simulator, level D, Day time & Night Time visual.
It is amazing, it looks and feels like the actual aircraft.

I got to try out one of United's DC-10 sims for free once. I was taking physics in high school and the father of one of my classmates was a DC-10 captain for United. He arranged for the whole class to give it a try. We each only got to take off, fly once around the pattern and land, but it was a blast. I think that was when I decided I wanted to be a pilot for a living.
My first time in a full flight simulator was in a TWA 747 simulator back in New York. The pilots had a good laugh when I crashed the simulator on my first landing attempt, but were pissed when I had a perfect landing my second time out!
With that I got out of the seat in a hurry, I did not want to press my luck.

Just out of curriosity, what happens when you crash in a simulator? Does the screen just go blank or do you see flames or what? What does it feel like?
The screen goes red & the simulator shudders and simulates the reason for the crash, whether it is a hard landing, engine flame out, or a broken strut, etc.

Cool! Does it hurt?

I'm thinkin' that it doesn't hurt during the REAL thing.

Kind of like the question: "If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is around....."

Just MHO.

It all depends on the Crash.... I'm sure those crashes people walk away with there lives from hurts ...
There have been people killed in simulators before - but for reasons other than student's crashing the thing

I know of a TWA captain that peed his pants b/c he got so freaked out in an emergency during sim training. It's that realistic.
