Recommended Posts

Is there any way we can get a nice message written up and have all of us sign it and send it to the family to show them how much Tom ment to our community,and how he pretty much single handedly via avsim kept it alive after aces closed

Copilot: Captain have you ever flown a 777 before?

Captain:Nope,but we got a strong tail wind and the bar in Hong Kong stays open till 5am, so lets kick the tires, light the fires and, get the hell outta here.

I've been mentally preparing myself for the day I visit Avsim, and the sad news is announced; I just never expected it to be so soon. Rest in peace, Tom. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, and know that you've touched a lot of lives.

ATC: "Tom Allensworth, you are cleared for take-off, no speed restriction, climb and maintain flight level ..... well, you'll know when you arrive".

 

RIP to a true Flight Sim pioneer.

My condolances to the family of Tom and I wish you strength for the coming hard times.

 

Though I never met Tom it is like a dear friend of mine died. Nearly every day I read his famous site for simulation and I am shocked that he passed away in such a short time.

 

You can live further knowing that Tom did awful good to so many people.

 

I wish all the best to you.

So sad to hear about this news. Tom thanks so much for what you have done for the flight simulator community. You will not be forgotten, at least not by me and probably a whole lot of other people. My sincere condolences to Toms family. Thanks Tom for doing everything you did for the community!
