That's funny, I feel exactly the opposite. I trained at mostly untowered airports, and much prefer that more "free form" flying experience, as opposed to being told exactly what to do in all phases of airport ops. I find that to be more stressful, personally.
It just goes to show that different pilots have their own perceptions of what is enjoyable vs. stressful in aviation!
I'm definitely in the untowered school. But I think it's probably exactly because of where our training took place . I expect that, if I had ten or twenty hours with an instructor in a towered environment, I'd be just as happy there. Making calls to, and responding to a tower just isn't automatic for me, so it makes it stressful.
