My 2 cents on flying experience at FSP:

I felt like my gliding hours worked in my favour due to the emphasis at FSP on attitude flying and it was therefore a pretty natural progression. I didn't think that too many hours would do me that much good seeing as they take into account experience and I wasn't worried about getting carried away and watching the scenery as some pointed out. However, perhaps the biggest advantage I found was how it helped with the mental processing. Being a bit more comfortable in the air gives you a bit more brain space to work with, especially when it comes time for the circuits. Rumour has it that pilots don't have much to spare in that department as it is
