Why does one not notice that there is air resistance on the door when one opens it in the air Cessna Skyhawk.?

The pressuer is force on aeroplane doors like an rudder or flaps, when you try to open it.

This is a fake simulation base on a early model whit no surface simulation..

Cessna Skyhawk (G1000)

I no a man in Alaska that use both doors to aerobrake in emergency.

A quick look at the C172 (not the Skyhawk) in plane-maker would seem to indicate that the doors are not fully modeled (aerodynamically) as a moveable part of the fuselage - just cosmetic ?

Actually I think there are more serious problems to fix first.
