Depends if you understand how planes work.
There was a lot of tlak on the boards how the flying controls were impossible, too difficult, learning curve was too high, etc.

I braced myself for horribleness when it came to flying a plane and doing that mission to fly through rings. Passed it first time.

You just need to understand that pulling a joystick left doesn't turn the plane left, it rotates it in place. You rotate to the right angle then you pull back on the stick to turn. I think people just wanted to move a plane like first person controls, maybe.

and that's using the original Xbox console pad - not the 360 pad?

At the time it was using the PS2 pad. So much worse.

Really, the planes fly themselves. The accellerator just keeps you going at a set speed and you can speed up or slow down accordingly. The first mission really doesn't need much in the way of that, just get used to turning and such.

personally I found the boat school a bit more challenging than flying.
Now don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright, but that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night...
