Tom has reached out to many of us flight simmers, has helped developed what has became today the greatest flight simulation website, and created what is now the center of all flight simulation. We all hope he has had a safe flight to his new world, and we hope that AVSIM will continue to develop to what Tom Allensworth has probably wanted. His death is never a delay in flight simming, but a step further towards perfection. If Allensworth has never helped reach out to save our needs, our flight simulation community would have been uncivilized and confusing. He went past our limits to save our flight simulation needs, but now its time for it to take it to another level. 


We hope AVSIM will still continue to be the best flight simulation website. Thank you for taking your time to read this. 

RIP Tom Allensworth.

I've spent a little time this morning looking at how AVSIM was formed and, certainly Tom must have been a truly driven and implacable man to have created this incredible space. One comes across his posts from time to time and they are highly intelligent, intuitive, informed, funny, scary, kind and thoughtful and occasionally hot-headed and verbose but always made with a deep sincerity. They are everything this forum should be and you could tell he was immensely proud of his achievements as we are of him. What a guy!


Thank you Tom.


Rest In Peace
