Simulator software and hardware for instrument training

Dear PC Pilot

I liked the Reality Check article printed in your previous issue but would like to obtain some more information and I would be most grateful if you would point me in the right direction.

I am a SEL (Single Engine Land) commercial, instrument-rated pilot with an expired CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) and CFII. I am just getting back into flying after a hiatus of almost a decade. I recently finished a bi-annual check in a Cessna 172, have a fresh physical and I am flying small Cessnas VFR again. Next up is working towards and passing an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC), and renewing my CFI and CFII, as I really enjoy teaching.

To get back into instrument flying I expect it would be helpful to spend some time on a home simulator setup, especially if it could include flying in a simulated ATC environment such as is provided by VATSIM
