Your age?

Recommended Posts

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!

 

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?


28, flight simmer since I was 13 and thanks god an airline pilot for a big carrier, but sometimes I arrive from a 12 hours duty time and the next day I take the controls of a pmdg 777/737 or coolsky dc-9 around the world. ( and thank god my girlfriend accept it, not like the ps3!)

 

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?)

50, in a few days :-)


Main Simulation Rig:

Ryzen 5600x, 32GB RAM, Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti, 1 TB & 500 GB M.2 nvme drives, Win11.

Preferred Simulator: X-Plane (and seriously considering AEROFLY FS 4 too)

Preferred Airbus simulation platform: P3dv5 + FSLabs Airbus family

I also use MSFS 2020... Cute, and superb overall functionality, although "flying" feels rather "plastic" ...

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!
