Well what is the sys requirements? I also would like to see if it would work on my computer with FSX where I have a three year old computer with a 1.2 processor or more I don't know with only 6GB of ram and it runs FSX just fine after it starts. Plus how easy is setup and what is the best time to get started if I can fly the C172 trainer?

All A2A aircraft are worth the money and you don't need the most expensive game pc. My pc is a seven year old i5 2500K @ 3,3 gHz. Flying over big cities in ORBX is not a good idea with my pc and all sliders to the right (10-15 fps and an OOM in less than ten minutes) but flying over ORBX England is no problem (except for London): 20 fps or more. Flying in the wildernis (for instance ORBX Pacific Fjords) is a delight (very beautiful and 24 fps or more). Flying over default scenery will be no problem at all.
You will need a HD screen, a yoke (for instance CH), rudder pedals and a trim wheel (Saitek/Logitech). You could buy a switch panel.
You can use the A2A manual and you can fly the A2A Cessna's with the real world POH's (which are to be found on the internet).
