I didn't realize that Air Daily X was still active. It hasn't been the same since D"Andre Newman stopped making video. I enjoyed his interviews from 2 years ago from FlightSimCon back in the day.

I was told D'Andre moved on from ADX to other things in life (well paying job, family, etc.).  I've kept him on the team page since he was in the initial seed/Founder.

Apparently, D'Andre would financially afford to fully commit and devote substantial time to ADX for that period in his life.

How things have changed! The XP haters are now jumping on the XP bandwagon! Some of us were ahead of the curve during the xp9/10 days!

After reading all this and the very high demands, I'm amazed to see "being paid" isn't one of the benefits 🙂

American bias, maybe because non-American pilots aren't real pilots... who knows 🤣

Absolutely barking mad......this is a computer based pc flight simulator game!!  There can’t be many individuals out there into pc flight sim that hold all those qualifications at once - and who will do it for free.  Anyway, without wishing to antagonise anyone, I thought ADX was dead, it certainly is well behind the drag curve in reporting news - FS Elite is more on the ball than ADX.

I agree.
Never seen such a wishlist of requirements for a hobby-job without salary.
Its like running a mega McDonalds fully unpaid, BUT you can eat as much BigMacs as you like.

+1 Good luck with that one ADX. I once had a boss who said "If you are going to spend time on the job dreaming then dream big because you will need another job sooner than you think". LOL
