How to avoid an accidental flight, with no flight simulator

In a nutshell: If you can, use the Trip Advisor app.

It has a ton of flight-simulating content to choose from, and it’s easy to learn, which means you can actually fly if you really want to.

You can also check out my previous trip to Singapore to learn more.

This is why I recommend using Trip Advisor’s app for all your trips.

And it’s also why it’s an absolute must for any airline flight plan.

You’ll be surprised at how many flights you’ll see that you can’t even believe were real.

I’ve been flying for more than 30 years, and I can tell you, it’s almost impossible to get a real-world flight simulator without one.

You don’t need a flight simulator to fly.

There are countless flight simulators out there for you to check out.

They’re all free, and they’ll let you fly anywhere in the world, at any time.

I’m not even talking about commercial flight sims, either.

I have a full-blown simulator setup that I use to fly around the world.

And if you’re looking for something for your flight plan, I would definitely recommend using one of these flight simmers for your trip planning. 

You might want to skip my flight simulator tips for the day and head straight to my flight planning tips. 

How to fly with a flight plan The flight plan you pick should include specific routes and flight times for specific cities.

The best way to do this is to use an app like Trip Advisor.

That’s right: the best way for you, your passengers, and your airline to plan a flight.

So, to start with, here’s what to look for in your flight itinerary.

Where can you book?

There are a ton and tons of flight bookers on Trip Advisor, but this is the easiest way to find out about your flight options. 

Why can’t you just fly to another city?

Many airlines allow you to fly from the destination city, but you can only book your trip in the airport of your choice.

If you’re flying to a city that’s in a major airport, you’ll want to make sure that you book your flight in the most popular airport in your destination city.

So if you can fly to one of the smaller airports in your city, that’ll help you get the most bang for your buck. 

Where can I get a flight itineraries for flights that I can’t use on my trip? 

It’s always a good idea to get your flight plans from multiple flight booker sites.

I used FlightZoom and Expedia, but I recommend you get a FlightZoex.

It’s a flight booking app for the iPad, and FlightZoo has a flight book that will show you your options.

Why are some flights cheaper than others?

If you’re going to the airport where you’re planning your trip, it might be a good plan to fly in a lower capacity, and you may also want to go with a lower-cost airline.

If that’s the case, it’ll be easier to find flights to lower capacity and a lower cost.

I’m not a flight attendant.

Why are some airlines charging me a lot for flights? 

Most airlines are starting to offer discounted pricing for the first time this year.

If your airline offers a discounted price, it may be worth your while to try it out.

And that includes flights that have lower capacity than you might expect, because the airlines will charge you more for those flights. 

What is the best airline for a weekend getaway?

This depends on your needs.

If it’s your first time flying, then you should try the cheap flights first.

I don’t recommend flying with a cheap airline, though.

If the cost of your ticket is going to be more than your first-time trip, then I’d definitely recommend going with an airline that offers more value.

If flying in a budget-friendly destination, or if you don’t have any kids, then maybe a budget airline is better for you.

But if you’ve been traveling in a large city for years, then the best option for you is to fly a budget airlines. 

Can I cancel my flight if I get sick?

No.

Can I buy a flight ticket on the app and cancel later? 

Yes.

If I can afford it, I’ll often cancel my trip, because I think it’s worth it to fly somewhere I know is affordable and that I’ll be able to get to safely. 

Are there any other things I should know? 

If you have questions about how to plan your trip or if there’s a particular city that you’d like to visit, please let me know.

I’d love to hear about it.
