I am 32 years old and I own a trucking company. I drive a Peterbilt 379. You can find a picture of my truck on my blog (http://www.wilsonhines.com)at the very bottom of the page. I am a very serious simmer. I use FS2crew, FSBuild, Navigraph charts and Sporty's Charts, ASWXR, FS Flight Keeper, RC4, Ult Terr, Gr Env, and tons of airport sceneries. I fly the PMDG 747-400 and the LDS 767-300, but the 744 gets about 95% of my flights. I like the parallels of what a heavy airline pilot and a heavy gross weight (80,000 lbs) truck driver has to work with. Our equipment have many similarities, especially with the information provided through the panels. I like how a pilot and a driver have to fight and manage weight issues. And we both have tons of government regulations to keep up with and comply with. I just enjoy this simulator! :) Wilson HinesMy Blog: http://www.wilsonhines.com --------------------------------------http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpghttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/pmdg_744F.jpghttp://online.vatsimindicators.net/837438/3074.png

40, Computer Systems Architect, and part time commercial pilot with about 1100 hours.Been simming since Sublogic Flight Sim, and just found a video I recorded in the 80s of a flight from BOS to MVY in FS4(or earlier?) on my dual-diskette Tandy 1000. I used it to add background music for my class in Film/TV post-production. Simming keeps me from jittering like a heroin addict in withdrawal, since I can't afford to fly in real life as much as I'd like, and I can't give up my high-paying engineering job to fly full-time.

Bob, I just went and Googled Sublogic. Man! how primitive it seems now. Hard to believe that FS started out like that. I seem to vaguely remember that program though. You know, now that I take a closer look at it I don't just vaguely remember it, I played it. Pretty sure that is what lit my fires about flight simming. I just never had a computer to run it on til a few years ago.Happy Flying, Hayden Lee Laffoonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpg
