SUPPORT VATSIM...DEMO FUTURESHOP CANADA...

Recommended Posts

On Sat, Feb 25th the cysjhangar group will be doing a demonstration of VATSIM and online flying at FutureShop in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada between the hours of 14:00Z and 1900Z. Matt Horan has graciously offered to be online controlling between these hours. We're looking for online flyers to join us as well as as many controllers as we can get in the region as well as neighboring FIRs. At the event, we will not only be demonstrating online flying but also doing an introduction to scenery design using CanUk scenery files. We are bringing all kinds of controllers - rudder pedals, yokes and throttle quadrant. We'll be introducing people to FSINN and SquawkBox3. Last October we did a demonstration at the FutureShop in Saint John, NB and it was a very successful event. To support online flying, please join us online between the hours mentioned above. I'll post more details as they come in. Also, if you are close by, please drop by the Fredericton Futureshop location and feel free to fly on our machines! Adam CanUk

That's a great idea, Adam. Perhaps something that could be picked up elsewhere to bring others into the hobby.BlairCYOW

Hi Blair, Yeah, I know of at least 8 people, in attendance at our earlier demonstration in Saint John, NB, who bought FS and loaded up SB3 and are now online flyers. We had a raft of new members join the hangar, some of them now flying on the network, others in the 'learning' phase. I'm by no means a huge FutureShop fan but they do kindly offer a good place to host these things and we, as flight simmers, get great exposure. It really was surprising how many people were crowded around our tables at times during the day.You should consider doing one in Ottawa. Bet you'd get a monster turnout! So man, we gonna see ya online Saturday? ;-)Adam

I'll be hosting a birthday party for a seven-year-old -- alone, since my wife's out of town. :-("OK kids -- this is called an MD83 and now we're going to do something called a flightplan!"
