Howdy folks....

New to the forums and doing a little reviewing of the posts. Just confirmed by Ryan and looking forward to posting a little information now and then.

I'm an old timer by just about everyone's standards. Been around for quite a while. Retired from general aviation and corporate flying in 1981 with a little over 8000 hours in various types of aircraft as Chief Pilot, Instructor for land and sea multi/single engine, IFR etc. etc.

Have flown flight simulators since FS98. Little rusty on real world flying but be glad to help any way I can. also ready to learn anything I can.

Hi all.

I'm John from Sydney, Australia formerly of Basildon in Essex.

I was approved the other day.

I have been mucking about with FS since the first one so I've seen a lot of changes. Some good and some not so good.

Interests are many and varied but all revolve round computers and how they work.

Look forward to working with you once I learn what the hell I've got myself into 😂

I'm Joe From California. I see most of you all are from other countries. That's cool. I'm sure we all will be talking a lot on here. I might be the oldest on here. Let's just say that I could be for some of you a grandpa. Hence my screen name.

Hi everybody my name is John from North Carolina and I have recently been confirmed to be an editor. My hobbies are varied but I spend a great deal of time working with flight simulators and flying games. Some that I have used are FS98, FS2000, FS 2002, FSX w/Acceleration, CFS (complete line),and IL2. I started playing Air Warrior, which at the time was a great game, and ended the series with AW3. For the last 8 years I have been messing around with different aircraft models, creating flight schedules for AI, and modifying airports to get the most out of my FS gaming experience. I look forward to working with everyone on improving the experiences that flightsimmers can enjoy.

Hi All!

I'm Paul in Farnborough UK. A flight sim (and general PC game) fan.

In the coming weeks I hope to write my first piece, about building systems and optimizing from scratch, for those who would normally be unsure of 'messing' with their system.

All I need is now Vista SP2 to be released, so that I can go through the process myself again, first.......

Hi - I'm Claus from Denmark.

I'm 47 - and recently quit my job (been in the computer business for about 25 years) to become a fulltime foster parent..... I use all the time I can spent on my computer - especially MS flight simulators, which I've been a big fan of since I can remember! In all I'm a big fan of anything concerning aviation. I'm looking forward to learn to know you guys and work with you. Proud to be part of the team 😂

Hi All... My name is George (W3CPR), I am 74 years old and I live in Allentown PA. I love to work with the airplanes in FS2004 and fly them. I especially like downloading them and then putting in the necessary panel gauges in order to bring the planes up to modern requirements. I also like to modify the aircraft.cfg files as well. I have been working on the aircraft in FS2004 for several years now and have approximately 180 different aircraft in the collection along with 16 landable aircraft carriers, all with the arrestor cables and 13 aircraft with tailhooks. I find many many aircraft that are not complete from the author's and have to be brought up to snuff for modern compliance. I enjoy flying under ILS conditions with 1/8th mile visibility and fog and clouds down to the ground, even on the aircraft carriers. Modifying the aircraft makes the hobby much more interesting. A lot of the aircraft have no radio but I don't think anyone these days would venture to fly without one. The programs I use are Flight Simulator Panel Studio and AFCAD. My previous work was as a field engineer for my own company. We designed weather satellite ground stations and placed them all around the world. Prior to that the highlight of my career was as a ground communicator between the command service module and the lunar excursion module on the Apollo 17 mission located on Ascension Island.
