Flight Assignment: A.T.P.

Recommended Posts

Well, I wonder if that got anyone's attention after all of these years - if so, you're probably over 40!

 

I'm not sure where to post this, but, I've come across my first "serious" flight simulator for the early '90's, Flight Assignment: A.T.P.!

 

I first fot into flight simming in the late '80's with what was basically a "stick" representation of the airplane and the runways.  Mountains were polygons if I remember correctly - don't remember the name of it, wish I did.  ATP was the first realistic flight sim I can remember and other than nostalgic value for me it has been left in the rear view for flight programs.  I hate to part with anything flight simming but it is just taking up hanger space.

 

For anyone with a museum out there that would like to give a home to the set which consists of the basic program on three 5-1/4 floppys (youngsters, ask your older computer friends what a five and a quarter inch disk is) and/or three 3-1/2 720K disks.  Also, is the East add-on on 9 disks and all associated navigation maps, Pilot's Operating Handbook & Commercial Aircraft Flight Manual.  Oh, the fond memories of youth!

 

If interested in this bit of flight simming history for the cost of postage it is yours!
