I would like to add some advice on the simulator training. This is my own experience, being a ”methodical” kind of person.

Practice with a plan. Flying around aimlessly is way too common both in the sim and IRL. Identify your weaknesses and invent practices!

For example, left and right circles and figure 8 is a good start for beginners. Try to keep a constant altitude and be smooth.

Practice landings from all directions.

Try also this: Fly the plane away until it becomes a dot and then try to navigate back. The dot can be controlled. This is a skill that can be learned and it is enormously useful.

Fly the plane, pull the sticks randomly and try to recover from whatever angle you ended up. Then do it and cut the motor power and land.

Pattern flight and 3D are very useful disciplines to practice too to become a better (more complete) pilot, regardless of your preferred discipline.
