Mission Building Article

Mike Singer (here’s his blog http://informationmike.spaces.live.com/) took a few days and cleaned up my article to post it on the FSinsider site. He did a great job and still gives me credit making me look like a much better writer than I really am. He also validated some of the stuff I wasn’t sure about and…

I have gotten a lot of e-mail speculating that my time spent at the RAF base recently was for a pending CFS title. I wish I could say you are right, but you are not. However, I am very confident that the CFS franchise will come back sometime and many of the “platform building” enhancements…

Helicopters in FSX

FSX Review by SimHQ

There have already been several previews and reviews of FSX and I rarely call them out in this blog, but I just read through this review and I thought it was very thorough, takes us to task where we have issues and praises us where I think we did a great job. I really think…

FS Weekend Day 1

After a fairly long drive in a taxi to Lelystad airport I entered the Aviodrome. The venue is wonderful with vendor displays and end user setups intermixed with vintage aircraft. Mishca and Susan made me feel right at home, and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Once the laptop was setup and working in the…
