  1. It is indeed a pleasure to announce AVSIM's 18th Birthday today. We have had our share of sad news this last week, but with the bad also comes the good. 18 years! Happy Birthday to AVSIM and all of our community members! Please head out today and celebrate in your traditional fashion!
  2. We are pleased to announce the release of the 2014 Demographic Survey results to the community. Here you will find the compiled data from the survey which was ran for most of the year. Over 2,900 of your fellow flight simulation enthusiasts participated in this survey and we think you will find the results interesting. All of the raw data used to compile these charts can be found in the AVSIM PUBLICATIONS area that you can access from the right menu area; HOT SPOTS. You can view the results and join the conversation about the 2014 survey here.
  3. We are pleased to announce that AVSIM will be bringing online live streaming video within the next 30 to 45 days. AVSIM will be providing a “channels” based system that allows any community member to establish a streaming video channel on either Justin.tv or Twitch.tv and then be fed into the AVSIM system’s video line up. Think of it as AVSIM providing the services of a Comcast, Direct TV, Sky TV or the Dish Network as examples. The AVSIM channel system will indicate to the viewer which channels are active and not, chat while watching and more. We will provide the channels and you can pick your favorite while participating in the forums or elsewhere within AVSIM. Unlike the basic Justin and Twitch services themselves, AVSIM will be acting as an aggregation and one-stop service for all flight simulation live stream channels. Twitch.tv will allow in-game streaming so that group flights, RTW races, and VATSIM and IVAO events, can be fed live to all viewers on AVSIM from within the broadcaster’s flight simulator. Justin.tv will allow broadcasters to set up channels that are not in-game. For example; virtual airline news channels, community news, how to channels such as “Learn to paint your aircraft”, “learn to create scenery”, “learn the FMC”, etc. We will be adding more channel sources as we further develop the system. Please stay tuned. We will post more as this system comes closer to launch.
  4. We have posted our interview of Ben Supnik and the questions that he has answered from the earlier submission by the X-Plane community here. Here is a short intro: Your can read the rest this large interview here.
  5. Michael MacKuen made the following announcement just before 1500 EDT today. Closest Race Ever Concludes in a Dramatic Finish over the Black Sea (Wednesday, February 19, 2014) The 2014 Round the World Race was completed on Monday night with the three teams racing over the Black Sea into Sochi's URSS. After racing for fifty eight continuous hours, the end of the race was the closest ever. Team AVSIM finished at Sochi first but was carrying thirty five minutes' more penalty time as Team FlightSim and Team Sim-Outhouse came barreling in over the sea. Everyone was watching the clock and the visual flight tracker and the clock again – while trying to estimate whether the penalty margin would be enough or not. As fsxar177 and mickj300 screeched to a stop on the floodlit tarmac we all discovered that the difference was three minutes – FlightSim was not quite able to maintain the gap. Sim-Outhouse, flying accident-free, slipped in just before Team FlightSim for second "on the ground" though they carried a slightly larger accumulated penalty and finished third overall. Mr. Murphy, the carrier of ill-fortune, visited all three teams in about equal measure; but in the end, the maladies were allocated about equally so that the race was pretty much determined in the air. The finale showed just how equal are the teams' flying, planning, and organizing talents. The Wilhelm "Wilhe" Bendit Trophy Race Finish Order and Net Race Time The finishing times, counting the net bonuses and penalties accrued during the race, are: Team AVSIM 55:51 Team FlightSim 55:54 Team Sim-Outhouse 57:25 Congratulations to the 44 pilots who participated in this year's dramatic event. Kudos all around. Additional individual awards for performance will be announced in the coming days. The Executive Committee offers our thanks to all who participated.

Who: All who wish to attend. What: A gathering of friends from around the world to honor Tom Allensworth -- the founder of AVSIM -- who loved the community very much. Knowing Tom, and his selfless nature, he wouldn't want us to grieve or be sad that he isn't here with us, but rather, he would want us to do something in his name that brings joy to us for many years to come. What better way than flying that brings us all together in his memory. The AVSIM Staff and Allensworth family thank Trucker17 for starting this tradition.
