Real F-14 Sims Open to Public

Recommended Posts

It appears you can hop in several real (fully restored) F-14 Simulators around the country. I'll have to keep an eye out for these in my travels.Source: http://apnews.excite.com/article/20061007/D8KJLMPG0.htmlF-14 Simulators Debut in Pensacola, Fla. EDIT: You can't simply cut and paste copyrighted material in to forum messages here. Doing so puts AVSIM at serious risk of being sued. Don't do that again.

Thanks for the information Al.Couldn't help but wonder what was considered the replacement bird for the Tomcat? F-15? F-18? Is there an F-22 Carrier version? etc. Happy flying:RTH

Is the F-35 going to replace the F/A-18s? I was thinking i heard that it was but they are still updating the Hornets so surely not.

Understood if it's an AVSIM rule and I will abide by the owner's wishes. BUT, in my own defense, it was not blatent plagiarism as I quoted the Date, author's name, news-outlet, and the URL to the source. It's the same as a legal bibliography. The updated Harbrace College Handbook (with 1998 MLA Style Updates) includes instructions for quoting Internet-sources exactly like this.Regarding the FA-18, it is currently the Navy's air and ground platform. Eventually, the F-22 will be the DOD-wide air-to-air strike fighter and the F-35 will be the DOD-wide ground attack platfrom, or something like that... There was just episode on Modern Marvells (History Channel) not too long ago...

It is not an issue of plagiarism. It is an issue of copyright violation. You can use partial quotes of an article or published items (its called "Fair Use"). "Fair Use" does not allow you to post the article in its entirety or even the bulk of the article without permission from the source (in this case, the Associated Press). And, organizations like the AP take a very dim view of web sites that allow that to happen - and we don't.

Hmmm, thought I had a pretty good arguement there Tom, but your explanation sounds pretty solid (sitting back down, folding hands in lap).... :-beerchug

:)Well, admittedly, the concept of "Fair Use" is a tricky one, and one that is not familiar to most. We see "Fair Use" used as justification for piracy, wholesale violation of copyrights, abuse of Freeware, etc. etc. Folks are learning, but in the meantime, as you will understand, I am sure, we have to protect AVSIM from this type of thing. I don't have any particular problems with lawyers; I just hate to pay them for other's actions.

Welcome aboard Chief. It is very good to see another Navy Brown shoe around these parts. Be careful! We're surrounded by a bunch of AF types. :)

Hey Chief,Trivia question for 'ya. If I tell you that I'm very partial to the Tomcat, parts of the F/A-18, the Prowler, the Growler and the entire Hawkeye, what does that tell you about me, employment wise?v/r,

Guest Navy_Chief

Thank you for the replies!It is certainly good to know we have some Navy representation here on the boards.Actually I am far from new on these boards. Been logging on to AVSIM for many years just never been an active poster. I have a fond place in my heart for Grumman. Joined the Navy in 1987 and started working on A-6E Intruders & Prowlers up in Whidbey Island. I worked Intermediate Level in the Radar shop fixing both the Intruders and the Prowlers radars. I worked on a Grumman made ATE bench called RADCOM and an older bench called MINI-SACE.Since then I have been assigned to two P-3C Orion Squadrons running the Avionics Shops (VP-4 and VP-9) and a couple of Instructor tours teaching Avionics systems to the new folks in the Navy.Speaking of C4I the Orions have been modified with C4I capability but it's windows based. (I know scary LOL)I am now lookingt at retirement here in about 3 years and am looking to get a job with the FAA as a avionics safety inspector. Wish me luck!Bryan

I actually got to ride in the cockpit once from Yeman to Bahrain. Don't worry about having Winblows on the planes, you still have my good UNIX servers on the ground...

Bryan, you might want to look at being a Tech Rep for Northrop Grumman. They are always looking for experienced field types and with an IMO background in your resume, you couldn't do better than that for a future job.
