How old are you?

Recommended Posts

30. Started messing around with my dad's FS98 and FS2000 as a young kid, but been hooked on simming since I was about 15 with FS2004. That one was the start of it all really!

at the age of 6?

Naaa... It was an ITT apple IIe clone that came to europe/germany mid 80s... I must have been around 10... But for sure that was Dads hardware back then and not mine 🙂 I was 14 when a friend of my grandpa, a pilot and owner of a Cessna, tought me to use two VORs radials to mark position on paper maps. He granted me some 3.5 disk with a local scenery and some paper copies of charts. Hell thats long ago. But that were pc times already. 

Cheers T.
