ASOBO, you've made such beautiful clouds, let us surf them!

Recommended Posts

Of all the absolutely stellar aircraft I have seen in the pipeline for MS2020 ... there is just one hole ... there are no turbine aerobats. ;)

There are options of every size and for every mission, and I plan to fly most of them. Yet ... there is no fire. There are no razor winged thorough-bred's, no wild and untamed machines from the forge of Vulcan, himself!

I was literally about to buy the Hawk T1/A from JF (xplane) when MSFS2020 was announced. I looked around and found a beautiful T38A for FSX. Then I thought to myself: Cessna, themselves, have the new Scorpion, which conveniently carries a Garmin cockpit. Or maybe a civilian homebuilt like the Turbine Legend? L39 Albatross, perhaps? There are a lot of those on the civilian air race circuits. You see, I call them turbine aerobats, because they are some of the highest performance aircraft ever made - a marriage between piston aerobats and heavy metal power. Can't you hear the call? The sound and fury? The world tumbling outside your canopy? Just you, the clouds, and a few thousand pounds of roaring thrust...

This is a polite request to not forget us ... the community of cloud surfers and occasional sound barrier breakers.

I am the Walrus.

Alternately, I could be a Narwhal (They are so cool, and their horns are so useful!)

I want my hang glider.  That is the true way to cloud surf, thermal surf, ridgeline surf, etc.

My brother has Coronavirus, confirmed by testing. On 3/26 he almost didn't survive the night.  He had extreme trouble breathing and was given a steroid inhaler.  He was very weak, had nausea, and other issues that aren't pleasant.  As of this update he is feeling much better, and seems he will be fine.  Stay safe out there.  (Updated 4/6)
