Delays in otherwise constant flight training 

Once again with living in Italy, I'm faced with delays before I get back to my flight training.

However, I do keep constant with flight simming almost everyday. Sure I miss the real thing, but simming serves to keep fresh all the routines and rules and procedures etc., that one might otherwise forget just not thinking about it.

And I think that's one if the virtues in flight simulation; is the convenience of being able to fly when you can't really fly for whatever reason.
