May we ask your location (Closest Airport - ICAO)?
May we ask what you primarily use your flight simulator for?
How many hours per week of flying do you typically log in X-Plane?
Is X-Plane your primary flight simulation software?
What is your favourite type of simulated flying?
What is your favourite X-Plane aircraft model?
Antonov AN-2 / DHC-2 Beaver
Would you share a bit about yourself as it relates to flight simulation please?
Lifelong interest in aircraft and aviation, but never got the time and resources to persue it.I've always had a secret yearning to be a bush pilot because it combined aviation and rural/wilderness living.
First flight sime experience was "something on a Commodore 128 back in the '80s". Managed to fly but never land it. Learned a little, but mostly frustrating flying with the keyboard.
Second flight sim in the late '90's - Terminal Reality FLY II. I still have the disc some where (just one DVD!) and a joystick. This was pretty recognizable with decent graphics for the day, and I must say it really flew a lot like x-Plane looking back at it. Very similar designs and features including replayy, custom camera locations, Moving Maps, realistic navigation, basically just lacking scenery.
Got X-Plane v-9 after a friend turned me on to it around 2010, Yoke and pedals in 2012 FINALLY! and life has been rosy ever since. It didn't take me too long after that to find Epoch and it's been downhill ever since!
If you could have one special feature in X-Plane, what would it be?
May we ask what your primary OS platform is for X-Plane simulation?
