  1. Boeing and the US Gov are far too cozy, have been always. This has lead to Boeing being allowed to in part self regulate and otherwise get special treatment, it's all about restrictive practices and no holds barred capitalism. Such is the American way and they are entitled to it, but what irritates the world outside is how quick they are to jump on other countries restrictive trade policies and state support of industry when America is the champion of such techniques, though it seems China is about to beat them at their own game. The sad part is that in this system of Capitalist extremism, Lives are sacrificed...shame on all concerned.
  2. Hello, I am a recreational pilot in RL and tried VATSIM many years ago but dropped it quickly as life got in the way. I have returned to FSX to keep my hand in whilst the WX is carp here in the UK and for fun. Well I have to say, the sound quality and lack of clear speech from the VATSIM controllers is appaling, it seems to be a combination of the software in use and the controllers rushing their instructions and not completing words (you know that modern day tendancy to start a word clearly and let the second half fade into muffled obscurity) Despite the complications Real life ATC communication is for the most part far far clearer. Hugely dissapointing and for me it negates the whole reason to connect to VATSIM and I find it hard to understand that an organisation that takes itself so seriously performs so poorly...I very much doubt I'll continue with it, it's honestly that bad. P.S, it's not a problem with end users equipment as TeamSpeak and other VOIP systems seem to be able to produce clarity, It's a software/controller problem
  3. Hello I am new here. A poster I don't know and have had no pror interaction with and is doing rather well in this competition has messaged me to ask me to vote for his image, it just wanted to let him know I consider it very bad form, perhas it's a generational thing.🎯 P.S. I must thank this person for bringing this thread to my attention, I will now vote for the image I like best
  4. Thanks both. I'll check out that forum. skelsey, could you send me some details on your VFR club? cheers, PF
  5. Hello Rex, I am also returning after about 12 years away, if you fancy joining up on a server some time send me a private messege, I like to fly mostly small prop aircraft but will give anything a go once.
  6. Hello, after a 12 year gap, I've picked up FSX again, my interest is mainly VFR flight in small aeroplanes, are there still any UK based communities who have regular vfr group flights? Google only brings up the CIX group and I am not getting a responde from them. all the best, Russ
