Unusual Young Eagle flight. 14 year old Microsoft Flight Sim pilot "Miko" flies real airplane from KFCH to KMAE (Chandler to Madera). This is only his second time in a small plane. His first time he was in the left seat with a flight instructor. Things to notice: Nose wheel stays on the center line for significant portion of taxiway. Nose of the airplane and instrument panel stable in relation to the horizon showing that he is holding the plane steady. Relaxed handling of controls. Comfort level with radio communications. His secret? Years of experience with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
