About Me

The Story so far

After having my fill of the technological world, I sold all my possessions and moved to Juneau.I bought an old DHC 2 Beaver from a local resident. I put some money into her and started working for EPOCH Alaska Air.

The home of "Bush Beaver  Cargo" is GA Ramp East 3 of PAJN the (Blue) Hanger. Contract Pilot for EAA based from PASI and Tour Guide. I do regular mail between PANC, PACV, PAYA, and PAJN.

I prefer to fly cargo over Passenger, flights under 4 hours gate to gate.
The most experience I have is in the x-hanger C-130 and the Carenado C208B Super Cargomaster. I have flown many other planes and almost exclusivly fly 3D cockpits. If a plane doesn't have a 3D cockpit, I usually won't fly it.

System Specs:
AMD FX 8120 Eight Core at 2.81 GHz
8 GB Ram
nVidia GTX 960

I have the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with 2 Throttle Quadrants and Rudder Pedals,1 Multi Panel, 1 Radio Panel, 1 Switch Panel, 1 Instrument Panel. I also use an iPad with x-mapper lite while flying.

I have a laptop next to me running a minimal version of X-Plane so I can view my water landings from the tail and vew the local map while still flying on my main display, and it's just plain helpful in other ways.

I have had many different monitor configurations. I had 3 21" Acer monitors setup at one point, but now I primarily run a 24" ASUS monitor
