Yeah, it was too "jerky" for me. I never really cared for it. So much so that I hadn't realized it was missing/gone.

"Skyhawk was removed either in 1999 or 2000, and was replaced by the Three Point Challenge game that sits in Celebration Plaza today. The reason for its removal is unclear, although rumors have circulated that the clear canopies on the cabins would frequently fall off mid-ride. Very few Intamin Flight Trainer models exist in theme parks today."
