Coming up to 28, my first sim experience was a program called Airbus A320 on the Amiga, which came on 2 x 1.44MB floppy disks!

Nice to hear of a rw pilot who's also flight-simming! Haha

 

And videogames are also a part of our culture just like books, films or music. GTA V will be held as an "interactive document of the early 21st century" for the centuries to come, believe my words :) hahah

That was also my first own sim back in 1993. The company was called "Thalion Software". I was 24, now I am 45 years old.

Very nice hobby and it is getting better "every day"!  :smile:

28, and only started "giving back" to the simulation field about 3 years ago when I became a sim instructor at my last airline. I think FS got me interested in flying... or was it, the TWA terminal at JFK?

Yup, get on the seniority list and STAY and milk it!

I'm 33.

 

Surprisingly few people in their puberty here, with the discussions so often flat spinning out of control I thought there'd be more in that age group.  :Whistle:

I'm 14, flightsimming since 2 years. And it's getting more to reality :) Someday, when I've finished school, I want to become an airline pilot. Currently I'm learning flying glider planes :) I just love it!!

we used to get these little plastic airplanes in a box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes

which were used as sim-objects in our simulated (totally in our minds) world of dive-bombing DC9s and suborbital rocketing Cessnas

Guess those were the first "boxed" sim  addons?

 

Then along came FS1....wow

 

age = over something - ish         ...(beyond the rainbow?)

Turned 13 recently. I feel so young :D I've been simming for less than a year but it's amazing. Taking my simming to my career though, looking to be an airline pilot in the future - already training!
