I'm in the process of ordering my first gaming computer, fully outloaded with the best CPU, video card and RAM that I can afford, and with this computer comes FSX/Accel Pack. The FIRST flight sim for the PC that I'll be experiencing since FS '95 in 1996. I'm beyond excited to start flying but I know that I'll need lots of help so I hope there are some people out there that can aid me from time to time. I heard this was the best place to meet some experienced flight simmers and talk with some very friendly people who could help a very novice pilot get started.
I'm interested in things just as downloading new aircraft and decos for them, purchasing new airports/AFBs, learing how to use FSUICP (which I've been told is a MUST have, especially with programming the G940 flight control system for 4-engine birds), and also just getting tips and tricks to make my FSX experience an amazing one every time I sit down to play it.
I have very little real-world flying experience but I'm currently enrolled in Air Force ROTC through Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!) and am on schedule to attend UPT and [hopefully] obtain a slot in either the F-15E or B-1B. I've loved aviation since I was a little kid, especially military aviation, and although I'm kept busy with schoolwork and training, I'm beyond excited to spend some evenings at the control of FSX and drift off into the splendid world of the wild blue yonder. Thanks to anyone who has taken the time to read this or respond. I'm glad to be a part of this community now and I apologize in advance for ALL of the petty and annoying questions that I'll probably be asking!
