Recommended Posts

I'm SOOOOOOO glad to see the list growing. Now we've got to find a way of recognizing each other as Sim Builders. Possibly we all should wear hats with propellers on the front of them...... NOoooo, just kidding:) Seriously though... any one got an idea?

Matt,I'll be there...except that UAL gave me NONE of the 777 time I was looking for and instead I get 2 hrs in a 747-400 and 1 in an A320. I shouldn't complain, but I AM building a 777!!! Suggestion - on your name tag - Write (in bold pen)"HCB - xxx" HCB = Home Cockpit Builder andwhere "xxx" is your sim type.Mine will say"HCB-777".How does that work for everyone?

Tom might be able to get something like that going, if he hasn't already.Just my $0.02.Dave Baux

"All sim builders meet at..."You know.. this is probably something we should have thought of earlier... Someone could do a presentation on 'Getting started on your Home sim" or something, then retire to another locale for those of us Convention attendees who are experienced, and those who want to start. You know, a sort of "Here's what you want to do first, here's some things to avoid", "There I was, knee-deep in a flooded basement..." =)Way back when, the only hardware players in the market were EPIC.. and now look what's happened! Maybe it's not too late? I'd be willing to draft some flyers and perhaps secure a place to meet after all the other festivities are done for the evenings... I am sure there are some new guys that would want to pick our brains... I see those questions in this forum all the time.Thoughts?

I didn't get my 777 time either, but I did get 767.. my second choice. (3rd was 747)I can't complain, although I did make an agreement with an A3X0 driver to be his right-seater, but I haven't heard from him!Most of the time I've ever spent in a sim has been painfully short, usually 10-15 minutes max.For those of you wishing to shoot some approaches, I suggest you bring some approach plates, with frequencies, ILS freqs, etc!I am going to try 2 hops between KSEA and KPAE... a good 10 minutes apart by 767, but is a good opportunity for me to see if 'my' sim flying matches what the sim and instructor will put me through.

There was some discussion several months ago, but I think it was too early to make plans. A round table discussion would be fantastic, it would definitely be a productive session, whether it's formal or informal:)

Plus, being selfish, I wouldn't mind picking y'all's brains for ideas I can use!I think Don and I will be packing a photo album and can discuss some suppliers for nifty things like projector screens, electronics and such, but to level set on expectations from us, we've done mostly cosmetic refurbishment of the 727 cockpit so far... but would love to just enjoy the company, war stories, and such!Dave & Donwww.727cockpit.com
