The passenger version just lets you ride shotgun with the pilot. If he dies, you die too.
Everyone crashes and burns at some point, even experienced pilots crash and burn, it is something you just need to accept.
Indeed. Only for myself, I've propelled my self into the ground like a freakin' dart more times than I care to recall, found cumulo-granite, etc. etc. Why, I've even gotten the AP to be the assistance in assisted in-flight suicide!
Long and the short - you WILL crash. But roll with it, try to crash with style, flair and debonaire!

Agreed - just do it. Practice with an aircraft for an upcoming FlightNight and then just show up and enjoy the best part - the company and camaraderie of being a part of a group that is using FGFS MP for fun. And we learn from each other and we teach each other and we share stuff like terrain, topography, stupid stories and we watch each other screw up.
Last week I caught my tail rotor on an unseen object and spun out/died. Pisses me off (mostly because I'm Flight Leader, flying the aircraft *and* shooting video) but that's part of the fun and experience. Humility. Everybody screws up so there is no sense in not enjoying the FlightNight Adventure for fear of looking stupid or screwing up.
Not likely you'll screw up as bad as I have already done many times in the past....
