Hello all, nice to see many others with Flight Unlimited memories. FU1 was my very first flight sim and I was hooked from the start. I'd spend many hours of my childhood doing loops and dives in the Sukhoi and Decathlon aircraft. Then FU2 came out and I enjoyed the realistic ATC and dynamic flight controls. I always took the Beaver out of Half Moon Bay and made runs to and around San Francisco.
After a while I finally got FU3, and was thrilled to learn I could reuse my FU2 CDs to return to the SanFran area once more. In the mean time I also tried Microsoft FSX, and while the aircraft and location selections were much better, the ATC really was disappointing compared to Flight Unlimited 2/3.
I'm really sad to learn that Looking Glass went under after Flight Unlimited 3, it was a great company and it really inspired me to learn more about aviation as a whole.
I apologize if this is seen as a necroing a dead thread, but I just wanted to express my appreciation to you guys for AVSIM having a Flight Unlimited section. Thanks guys!
