Recommended Posts

Who doesn't remember D'Andre from AirDailyX? I'm happy to see that he is now back with a new website:

He really fills a niche, that nobody else seems to be able to fill.

I used to like FSElite but for my taste it is already too much and every article is the same for me. I also have missed the personal touch of airdailyx although I really haven't agreed with everything he said/wrote.

This begs the question did he lose his well-paid job...?  As far as I recall, this was the reason he resigned from Airdailyx.

Kind regards, Michael

Good question, but... does it matter?

No it doesn't - that's not any of our business.

He answers that question here.

And to add to it, January 2019...

 

Thank you so much, that's just the info I wanted to know. I really hope him success with the new-old endeavor. 

Kind regards, Michael

Loved the article about Milviz and the ATR.

He will be in Orlando for the FSExpo, I hope I can meet him there.

I don’t look at ADX much any more as it seemed to become increasingly inert and almost irrelevant to simmers but by chance I went on their website earlier today and the latest ‘news’ is that they have appointed a “Managing Editor of Aerospace Safety, Incident and Crash Investigation”. From the news article, this appointment doesn’t appear to bear much relevance to flight simulation and this together with the fact that a lot of recent news articles were not directly flightsim related makes me think that ADX have decided that there is more mileage for them as a real world aviation news website.

It will be good to have d’Andre back again. Although his opinions could sometimes be subjective and controversial, ADX under his management was always entertaining and it was one of my ‘go-to’ areas for up to date flightsim news and gossip. I look forward to something similar on his new site!

Did any of you ever read some of D'Andre's posts on AirDailyX?  In some of his exchanges with posters he was very unprofessional and in some cases outright crude, vulgar, and insulting.

I don't trust any of the reviews from sites like FsElite or AiurDailyX as, in my opinion, they are biased in favor of the developers.  It is advertising and promotions by flightsim developers that funds these sites, so they can hardly be expected to provide impartial reviews.

Just my 2c.

Some people like the informal, 'straight-shooting' style of D'Andre. It's a choice, there are other options to obtain FS-related news, gossip and reviews, if you don't like D'Andre's interactions.

Regarding impartial reviews, I don't think you have tried to read any. While there can be some that appear a little favourable to a developer, FSElite has called out FSDT's GSX Level 2, Aerosoft's A32x Professional and Captain Sim's 757 pricing. D'Andre, back in his AirDailyX days, was highly critical but fair when reviewing products that were not up to scratch.

Each to their own, if you see bias and unprofessional behaviour, then this post won't change your mind.

I much prefer FSElite & D'Andre over the bland, uncritical, 'everything is wonderful' reviews that we've had over the years or the blatant pushing of a rubbish / glitchy product by some influencer on a YouTube video.

I sort of agree, although I just think these "news" sites are out to get likes/comments/attention...  which is basically what they're online for anyway.  I will probably start looking at his site (the ADX guy) again

Like others, I've simply moved over to FSElite as ADX has gone south.  Nevertheless, I'm pleased to see D'Andre has returned as well.  I find his style a nice alternative - not instead of, but in addition to, other voices and opinions.

I noticed no updates at FL350 since yesterday...so I'm just at fselite....

I followed the posted link to the FL350 site and read the article about Milviz and the ATR. I was shocked at the language used in it. It showed a total disrespect for the youth and parents in this hobby. I thought D'Andre had more class and was more professional than that. I think I'll continue to get my news moderated from Avsim.

Very good news.  D'Andre was a significant personality in the flightsim community which no-one has yet managed to come close to.  Glad he's back

Not a fan of his language either....What I do like about him though is his rather objective view on things and taking the time to ask the developers why. Only one other website did that (flusinews and its English counterpart which he linked in his article). The rest simply post what the developer posts without making sure they have the full picture, and as a result sometimes they miss what the developer has to say.

I agree that is commendable. I am counting on you and others to report his filtered discoveries here....and if he decides to clean up his act. 😉

F This and F that is not a style of writing I want to read, sadly the increase in bad language to a kind of everyday speak is something I don't like, I would imagin it was most likely that  attitude and language that cost  him his new job,
