    I am blind and my interests are as follows: I work with a guide dog, I am a ham operator and I love flying via FSX and IYP. If I had the chance, I would go to ISS Alpha in a heartbeat. We owe so so much to our space program. I now know with my interests that if I were sighted I would have had a career in the air and just might have earned my 1,000 hour certification for tht CDR and or PLT slot. I love computer games. I also read quite a bit as well.I don't know if this would count or not. But the Va that I fly for is the IYP VA.

  1. Hello to all, from Blind Pilot Ron Kolesar. In short. I have my I.D. code and the regenerator program to unlock RC4.3. But in which field do I place the I.D. code in, so when I click on the exe file, I'll have the info that it wants so that I can unlock RC4.3 with? How does a blind person interact with one's pc? This is a valid question. We interact with our pc via a program called a screen reader. The screen reader that the majority of us use is called JAWS for Windows. For a 40 minute demo of the latest version of JAWS 2020, their address is at: www.freedomscientific.com I would seriously recommend that you set a timer for about 30 to 35 minutes, that way you'd have enough time to save the work you're stress testing JAWS wit. Because you'll have to reboot your pc for another 40 minute demo window. Very Thankfully Yours, Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot. kolesar16417@roadrunner.com
  2. Hello to my fellow FSX Pilots. I've done the following. My FSX disks worked great on a win 7 with 64 bit processor and when I upgraded my older win 7 pc to win 10 I had no problems with my FSX program since they still were installed and working in win 10 world. But I purchased a new pc with now the latest clean win 10 anniversary computer with twelve gigs of memory and of course a 64 bit processor. I went to install disk one and I recived installaition errors. I've tried both repair and uninstall both with no luck. It even told me that the wizard installed the program one hundred percent without even asking for disk two which we all know that is not correct as well. So, if anyone is having luck installing FSX Gold on a win 10 anniversary home edition pc. Please let me know. Now how can a blind person fly? We use the following three programs that work hand in hand together. 1. FSX Gold. Now, I probably would go to the steam world since all of the games are going towards the steam world. But Valve Corporation the owners and designers of the STEAM world will not return our phone calls nor our e-mail letters letting them know that STEAM isn't blind friendly and have asked them to go to change.org and other petition web sites to read our comments on petitions about why steam should be accessible for the blind as well. 2. We do use the program FSUIPC. 3. Last but not least the voice input program from Canada called Its Your Plane or IYP for short. If you'd like to see you tube videos on how blind people are flying both private GA flights and participating in their virual careers in the IYPVA mode, checkout the videos on the IYP web site at www.itsyourplane.com Now, this FSX Pilot want to see a FSX version of the new successor to the older DF7X which is the current DF8X. Why do I want to upgrade? 1. The DF8X flies 500 miles further than the older DF7X. 2. The fuel on the DF8X is 35 percent more efficient than on the older DF7X as well. 3. The DF8X is the newest trijet three engine aircraft. Yes, the DF7X is the only GA aircraft I'll fly for GA flights. And I down loaded my DF7X from www.flyawaysimulation.com then went to the free down load page, and did the search for dassault or dassautlt falcon and the version you'll want is version 2. I met a man from the U.K online who gave me a aswemome Pittsburgh Steelers Football team paint job for my DF7X. So, there you have it. If anyone can figure out why windows 10 anniversary doesn't like the diskets for FSX Gold I'd deeply appreciate the help. I was told if I remember correctly, that there has to be a line of code placed down in the registery. But I don't remember what that was or where it would go to allow us to install disk one and to have the install wizard install the program like any other program would install. Many Thanks. Ron Kolesar, AKA The Blind Pilot
  3. We all know that the DF8X is the successor to the DF7X. That is why we're all waiting for someone to design a FSX version of it.
  4. While we all wait until Wilcom Publishing get's their act together, go to www.flyawaysimulation.com Then go and click on their free down load library. Then go to their search engine and I think all you'll need to type in the search is dassault falcon. Then go down through the list of files until use see the dassault falcon 7x but you will want version 2. Then simply down load it. Now I have the following question. Not sure if it is the DF7X or if it is with FSX with the excelerator program aslo installed instead of installing sp 1 and also sp2. But everytime I get to the before start up checklist and I get to the point to secure the hatches. The hatches andor doors are automatically closed on me. I don't get to use the option shift E or say close all doors or close doors, and I don't get to hear the wave files large doors closed as well. For a blind person the wave file and or hearing from my ai copilot or is it ai first officer telling me that the doors are secured is highly important to aBVI Pilot. But I would like to know why they are auto closing on their own. I'd appreciate to be able to open and or close them on my owne. Any thoughts on this will be hugly appreciated. Very Thankfully Yours. Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot who will offer the folling "Keep The Blue Side Up." To Ken G. It was I who stated I'd love to have a DF8X. I was told in a letter by wilco Publishing that when they are finished with the df7x, they will seriously consider designing a DF8X for us. But if anyone else will design a FSX friendly or FSX version of the DF8X, I'll appreciate it. 1. The DF8X flies 500 miles further than the DF7X. 2. The DF8X's fuel is 35 percent more efficient than the older DF7X as well. So I'm hoping to get me hands on a FSX versionof the DF8X and If I can I'll be selling off my DF7X. So, hope this clears things up. Ron AKA The Blind Pilot "Keep The Blue Side Up."
  5. For those looking for a awesome Dassault Falcon 7X whle Wilco get's their act together. Then I advise the following. 1. Go to www.flyawaysimulation.com 2. Go to the free down load library. 3. In the search field do a search for I believe it is dassautl falcon will be good enough. You will see if you go down the page the Dassault Falcon 7x, but you ill want version 2. Go ahead and down load that program. I've never had any issues with my DF7X. We can fly this until we can get our hands on the successor to the df7x which is the df8x. Hope this will be helpful. Ron AKA The Blind Pilot
  6. Here's to a bug free hug surprise when DTG will release their flight simulator surprise on all of we waiting FSX pilots. How can a blind person fly? This is a valid question to ask and a easier question to answer. We use the following three programs that work hand in hand together. 1. FSX. 2. FSUIPC which bridges everything together. 3. Most importantly for blind pilots everywhere the program Its Your Plane or IYP for short. Check out their you tube videos of blind pilots flying both private GA flights and career flights thanks to the IYPVA mode for our virtual career. Now I have a huge favoe of my fellow pilots. We the blind would like STEAM to be more accessible to we the blind who have to use a screen reader to acess our pc's and have to see through our ears. But the owners and designers of the new STEAM world Valve Corporation will not return our phone calls nor our e-mail letters. We've even written our messages out on STEAM's face book page with no luck as well. So please write messages on our behalf that we would like STEAM to be accessible to all who are a gamer or simmer. Valve's phone number for here in the United States is as follows: 425-889-9642 And the CEO Mr. Gabe Newell's e-mail address is at gaben@valvesoftware.com On behalf of Blind and or Visually Impair Pilots or for short BVI Pilots everywhere, we deeply appreciate the support. Now here's equal access to steam and the games and simulators out on steam for all gamers and simmers. Ron kolesar
  7. Hi Martin, from Ron Kolesar, AKA The Blind Pilot. I know that the new flight sim will finally be a 64 bit processor based. But any other secrets you can tell us for the December project? Also, do we have to have a steam account to enjoy the new flight sim? I ask this because STEAM is not accessible to we who have to use a screen reader to access our pc's and have to see through our ears since our eyes do not work. We fly thanks to three programs. 1. FSX. 2. FSUIPC 3. most important is the voice input program Its Your Plane or IYP for short. Please check out their you tube videos at thei web address at: www.itsyourplane.com Now if we only can get a FSX version of the Dassault Falcon 8X which is the successor to the DF7X that we've been flying. Many thanks and as the owner and the designer of the IYP program keeps telling us to do. "Keep The Blue Side Up."
  8. Hello to my fellow PC Pilots. My name is Ron Kolesar. AKA The Blind Pilot. I too am looking forward to the new flight sim tproject by DTG. All that I know is that the new flight sim is suppose to be 64 bit processor based. But how can a blind person fly? We use the following three programs that work hand in hand together. 1. FSX. 2. the com bridge of a program FSUIPC. 3. most importantly for blind pilots or BVI Pilots everywhere is the third party program called Its Your Plane or for short IYP from Canada. Check out some of their you tube videos out on their web page of blind people flying both for private GA flights and for their virtual career via the IYPVA mode at: www.itsyourplane.com Now please help me to make steam more accessible to we the blind gamers. We've written and we've made phone calls and all we get is voice recording to leave messages. Well, they don't return messages nor do they return e-mail letters. So we hope that you'll write on their face book page like we all did still with no results. But here is their contact info. Valve Software Phone: xxx-xxx-xxxx Via E-mail at Gabe Newell gabenatvalvesoftwaredotcom Here's to December from what I was told for the new flight simulator. Here's hoping we can simply down load it to our computers instead of having to go through STEAM since we can not make STEAM accessible to everyone. There are web pages out on the internet on how to make web pages accessible. Also, one more thing. most companies these days offer a audio challenge. Where they will give from a fivet to a nine digit code one digitat a time. you simply type in what you hear into the field and tab over to the correct button, click on it via your enter key and you're in. But Valve Software won't even do that much. Now thyre based here in the states and we have the American's With Disabilities Act here in the states. So, how can they get away with not making their web page accessible to everyone? I thank you. Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot.
  9. Forgot to metion that the web address to Its Your Plane is at: www.itsyourplane.com Keep The Blue Side Up. Ron AKA The Blind Pilot
  10. Thank you Nicovanj. Please keep me up to date on the success of the new fsx version of the Dassault Falcon 8X or for short the DF8X. Why would one want to sell their DF7X and jump to a DF8X? 1. The DF8X flies 500 miles further than the DF7X. 2. The Fuel is 35 percent more efficient than on the older DF7X. Now, don't get me wrong. I love the DF7X and it's the only private GA aircraft I'll fly for private GA flights. But the DF7X is the older bird and the current up dated successor to the DF7X which is the DF8X is now finally U.S. and Europe flight certified. For a blind person to take advange of the DF8X, it has to be friendly with the following programs. 1. FSX. Now the STEAM version. We're trying to make Steam blind friendly. But the people behind steam will not return our phone calls nor our e-mail letters. Maybe we can get some support from our fellow FSX pilots. Here is the contact info. Valve Software: Phone: 425-889-9642 To E-mail The person you want to e-mail is Mr. Gabe Newell His address is at gaben@valvesoftware.com 2. The second program that the DF8X must be friendly with is the small com bridge of a program that we're all using that is known to all is FSUIPC. 3. Last but not least most importantly for blind people to be able to take full control of the FSX world is that we need the DF8X aircraft to be friendly with the third party program called It's Your Plane or IYP for short. Check out some of their you tube videos of blind people not only flying private GA flights but also flying for their virtual career mode thanks to the IYPVA mode. So to Nicovanj I thank you for the new post. Here's to making a DF8X that all may be able to fly. Ron via FSX is known as the Blind Pilot. Via STEAM thanks to a sighted friend known as the BVI_Pilot And in the real world as U.S. ham radio station KR3DOG
  11. Hello to you Joe, from Ron Kolesar. AKA The Blind Pilot. Yes wilco is working on the df7x. I believe that current version is 1.5. But we all want the new successor to the df7x which is the df8x. Why would one want to jump to the DF8x? 1. The DF8X flies 500 miles further than the DF7X. 2. The fuel onboard the DF8X is 35 percent more efficient than on the DF7X. Now how can a blind person fly? This is a valid question to ask and a easy question to answer. We use the following three programs that work hand in hand together. 1. FSX. 2. The bridge of a program called FSUIPC. 3. Espeically for we Blind and or Visually impaired Pilots or for short BVI Pilots the Ai Copilot or is it AI First Officer voice assistant program from Canada called It's Your Plane or IYP for short. Check out some of their you tube videos on BVI Pilots flying both private GA flights and working on the career via the IYPVA mode. IYP's address is at: www.itsyourplane.com Now I was told my wilco that when the df7x is fully up and running and bug free that they would seriously consider the df8x. But why wait? I think if enough of us write on their face book page and or e-mail them expressing that we want the up to date current DF8X that then might starty designing the DF8X instead of the older DF7X. Now I enjoy the DF7X as well and it's the only aircraft I use for private GA flights. But the DF8X is now both FAA and Eurpe flight certified. One question that I have that no one so far can anser for me. You can down load a free copy of the df7x from the down load library at www.flyawaysimulation.com So, what is the differences between the free version from FAS and the paid version at Wilco is putting out? Many thanks and here's hoping that we can access the DF8X soon. Ron AKA The Blind Pilot
  12. Yes Wilco publishing has a pay version of the df7x. But go to www.flyawaysimulation.com Then click on the free download library and they have a DF7X. You'll want version 2 for the latest upgrade. I met online Mr. Bob May from the U.K. who gave me a awesome Pittsburgh Steelers Football Team color paint job for my DF7X. But I'm holding out for the DF8X. Which in the real world will run you a small $60,000,000.00. But you also can get a onboard private shower on your df8x. Why would one want to upgrade from the df7x to the df8x? 1. The DF8X flies 500 miles further than the df7x. 2. The fuel on the DF8X is 35 percent more efficient on the df8x than on the older df7x. I've asked wilco to design a DF8X because since it is the successor to the DF7X and with the two reasons I listed in my letter here. They said that they would seriously consider it. But it probably won't be until after all of the bugs are worked out of the df7x. But I have the following question. I've asked wilco and other companies that are selling the df7x with no answer to my question. What is the differences in features and or anything besides one being free and the other a pay version. What is the difference between the free copy of the df7x ver 2 from fly away simulation and the pay version from Wilco Publishing? Here's to the DF8X hopefully soon for all of we righ playboy FSX DF8X Pilots. Ron Kolesar known by as the Blind Pilot who wishes all to Keep The Blue Side up.
  13. Hello to my fellow Boxed version of FSX and the FSX accelerator programs. Why is it when I attempt to install FSX boxed version on my pc that is now running windows ten anniversary that I get error messages left and right at me? Has anyone been able to install their boxed version of FSX on a pc running windows 10 anniversary yet? If, so, I'd appreciate knowing how you did it. Very Thankfuly Yours, Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot.
  14. Hi to all, from Ron Kolesar, AKA The Blind Pilot. I fly thanks to the following three programs. 1. FSX. 2. a bridge of a program called FSUIPC. Which allows FSX to communicate with Third Party programs. 3. Last but not least the voice input program from Canada called It's Your Plane or IYP for short. Their web address is at: www.itsyourplane.com Now I wished that there were a demo of the PFPX program to stress test out. That way one can see if it will work out for what they use. I like the fact that it will give you a random number of both cargo and passengers. Also, I like the fact that it will give you automatically if you so chose your ultimate level cruising alt as well. I have been using the free airplane Manager flight calculator. If you do a internet search for airplane manager flight calculator, you'll find the free calculator. But it gives off inaccurate information. I've tried to explain this the designers of the calculator. But it's like don't call us, we'll call you. So what is everyone's opinion of the PFPX flight planner? I'd really appreciate it if this would get to the person who wrote the program to see about a demo to see if it would work with what I need to use so that blind people man and do enjoy the fly. Long live the Dassault Falcon 7X until we FSX Pilots can get our hands on a working FSX model of the Dassault Falcon 8x airplane. SMILES. Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot.
  15. Hello from Ron Kolesar. AKA The Blind Pilot. Is there such a thing as aonline calculator or rule of thumb or set formula for figuring out what the best leveled cruising alt should be with any aircraft from departure ICAO to Destination ICAO? Pretty much for private GA flights I'll be flying the Dassault Falcon 7x or DF7X for short. Until we get acopy of the df8x. SMILES. But all flight would be starting from my home of Erie Intl ICAO code of KERI. Now, for the third party program that blind people need to use so that we may take full control of our aircraft It's Your Plane or IYP for short, there's a career mode. I fly the b738 and b744. But when in the career mode you don't have to try and firuge out what is the best leveled cruising alt should be because you're giving your level cruising alt and you just climb to that toc. I know that the DF7X is certified up to a alt of 510 ft. But I wouldn't want to try and climb that high to fly from Erie to Harrisburg, or from Erie To Pittsburgh, or from Erie To Columbus. I probably would want to fly that high to fly to Michigan and or to Indiana. But I probably could get away with flying that high to Yellowstone National Park or over to Disneyland down in Santa Ana Ca. So depending on the aircraft and from the starting ICAO to the finished point ICAO. What's the proper leveled cruising alt calculator or formula for figuring out what the leveled alt should be? Many Thanks. Ron Kolesar AKA The Blind Pilot. I have the following question that I hope my friends might be able to help me out with. Now here's the question.
