Those are hard times. I'm not the biggest poster but I've often found many informations here, and liveries and tons of other stuffs. As well as followed a lot from PMDG which tended to get your site on its knees, but those are good times to me. He really brought us one amazing site for flight simulation and I'm sure there has been so much work behind it that we cannot even know.


I'mm really sorry, and I wanted to give all my condoleances to his family and friends.

I am in Shock. :( Even with the news weeks ago, I thought for certain, some how, some way, he would fight this like everything else, and win. :(


Tom, to you and your family, God Bless and my thoughts are with you. You have built something wonderful in AVSIM, and I promise no one will forget. WE, as a family of flight simmers, won't let them.


Safe skies my friend.

Many may fly and some are rewarded

handsomely, but the wings of gold of a

United States Naval Aviator mean more

than flying. It is dearly bought, requires

sacrifice to keep and represents a way of life.
