Thread: So You've Been Doing This How Long?

    I just got into the civilian flight sim hobby in July. Before that I've been playing DCS for awhile now, would like to say since 2018. Currently running FSX-SE and DCS. Will upgrade to FS2020 on release. Looking forward to it!

    My first serious foray into flight simulation came in 1987/88 when my parents bought me Flight Simulator II by Sublogic.

    I'm 45 now...and yes, it does seem like a long time :-)

    Cheers

    Almost as long as I've been flying. Started with gliders about the same time. Taught by the late, great Derek Piggott. Was another `victim` of his party trick doing a low, inverted pass at Lasham sans power, with a half-loop to land.
    Moved to powered flight a few years later.
    Got my PPL a few years after that, and have kept it up since then, keeping my hand in with real and fake flying....

    Thanks doering1. To borrow the words from a Maurice Chevalier/Hermonie Gingold song, "Ah yes, I remember it well".

    My first FS was on the Commodore 64. Here's an Eiffel Tower flyby.

    Nice! And over speed and descending according to the airspeed and vertical speed gauges.

    Its amazing how far technology has come. That screenshot looks like an absolute mess but I'm sure at the time people were in awe of it. I'm fortunate enough to be in my early 30's and will experience even higher graphical fidelity in the years to come.

    My first ever flight game? Fly! 2.

    LEGO blocks as clouds.... lol.

    Then I “move up” to Flight Unlimited 3. Could only fly in and around Washington State. Only jet was a Lear I think.

    I finally bought MSFS 2002 because of my wanting to fly a jumbo jet, anywhere in the world.
