That would be interesting and would definitely be a change for me and force me to reference other items rather than just the instruments. I feel like I'll just rely on the RPM gauge instead but as that's further down the cockpit than the airspeed indicator, it may not be easily glanced at?

Or magic pixies with money. I need to get me one of those.

Nope, genuinely confused here and I'm not asking you to change your opinion on it, simply that I cannot comprehend what you are trying to convey in the way you are delivering it.
@francoisvl, thats exactly one of the things I'm finding flight simulation to be useful for! It's not for learning to fly but rather learning what to do, where to look, what sequence of motions to perform, etc. so it's an aid to real flying lessons, not a replacement. I find myself less task-saturated or overloaded after practicing a few things in the sim and can then focus on other parts of the upcoming lesson. Vatsim.net and radio use is one of my weakest spots and even listening to recordings doesn't seem to help so I guess that'll be one of the things that'll just have to come with more and more practice.
Flight simming is no replacement for actual flying and as I only live a few minutes down the road, I always tell the flight school to give me a ring if the weather lets up and someone cancels their slot or couldn't make it and I could take the slot.... but unfortunately, no such luck yet so far.
