Recommended Posts


It is with deep sorrow that I have heard of the death of Michael Frantzeskakis. He died yesterday at the age of only 58. I am not sure of what caused his passing, and I’m sure we would all be grateful if someone could fill us in.

Michael has been a pioneer in the community, and has helped to create some of the most realistic addon aircraft which we all know and love. Thank you Michael.

I’m destroyed to see him depart this world. My condolences to his friends and family, and his colleagues at PMDG. 

We will miss you Michael.

IMO the folks who work as developers in this hobby are very intelligent people who would succed at any choosen field thus you can safely call their efforts a labor of love. I don't think Michael would mind me using this occasion to say thank you to all of the developers who contribute so much to the rest of us. 

Sorry for this sudden loss and prayers for his family during this sad time.
