73 and first flight sim was Elite IFR in 1991 (made in Switzerland), then the first 744 simulator (was made in Germany, can't remember the name...!), then moved on to Microsoft games, FS95 and each of them since then...

40 - started with FS 5.1 which I bought in my holiday in the US as I was fascinated by the planes I was traveling with. Made my mother buy it although I did not (yet) have a PC capable of running it. Strategic decision that was. 😄

61, and initially attempted simming back in the 80's, but gave up for decades due to work commitments etc. Saw the first reviews of MSFS before it launched, and bought it day 1.

Happy flying my friends!
