    I personally use Microsoft Flight Simulator (FSX) because it supported all my plugin accessories out of the box, rudders, radio panel etc.

    I tried XPlane, but didn’t like the UI, and getting it to work with my pedals and other accessories was way too difficult.

    Only issue with FSX is Microsoft has ceased development on it (bone headed move), so it’s not going anywhere, but it’s still a great piece of software and perfect for practising those IFR approaches.
