    Default Is it just us guys here?

    I'm curious. There are many actual women pilots. Are there any MSFS pilots of the female persuasion among us? Or are we just a bunch of boys with our computer toys?

    Lol.. I've wondered the same thing and assuming it's the latter. There are a couple of female pilot Youtubers out there, and one uses MSFS regularly for her episodes. So they exist. But women MSFS fans are probably an untapped market that Microsoft will hopefully take an interest in.

    I know 2 ladies that love flying in DCS Combat World. They think what I do in MSFS 2020 is boring!

    My flying club has about 10% female flyers, and some of the blokes are suspect, in my opinion..!

    meaning ladies rarely love aviation
    most that get into pilot career are just chosing a profession and the most part they enjoy about and are proud of?

    working in a traditional "men" job. Thats all their motive...to prove they can do it, to feel proud about their gender feminism, its just a job

    no love for aviation or passion for old calssic jets of golden era, like we guys spend hours, days reading, collecting, etc

    Hi - my name is Randy - I'm 72, heterosexual, retired, overweight and under-loved. Looking for a good woman who owns an GA airplane to share my life and my life-long passion for aviation..... please send picture of airplane.

    This comment is complete rubbish and is probably a good explanation of exactly why women aren't flocking to flight sim forums to pursue simming as a hobby. I am not in the aviation world so I don't know as many people in it of either gender. But whenever I see a man pontificating about what he perceives women's "motivations" to be in other aspects of life, the ease with which to disprove such nonsense is comical.

    The women I know in my profession, and also my other hobby in the music world, kick some serious ass and are rock stars.

    Here's one lady who's a commercial pilot/flight instructor/MSFS 2020 flight-simmer. She posts very helpful instructional (ad-supported) videos on YouTube. Her cat sometimes joins in. In one of her videos, she explains how to talk with ATC. In that video, she actually talks to a live ATC--in the sim. I think she uses an add-on called Pilotedge that connects her to a network of sim-connected real-life (retired) air traffic controllers who are somehow watching all the other simmers connected to them. I might try that someday--once I can at least flawlessly fly--and land--a Cessna 172.

    what you say is nonsense and by know means proves nothing
    I am a darwinist observer of reality and reality is all i see

    whos talking about music? music doesnt count because they do LOVE and are PASSIONATE about music

    we re talking planes here
    come up with an on topic point into the debate

    appreciate the "I know one lady thats different..."

    we all do, exceptions confirm the rule

    the chance of flying with a female pilot in your next flight is high, there are many many of them employed in airlines

    All proud of....their job...wearing the pilot suit and showing thay are just as pro...and they are!! no doubt, excellent airline pilots

    but not because of their passion of aviation

    and will add more:
    female pilot career took a boost as the profession got more a system operator of company procedures MFDs turning knobs etc

    in the past when flying was more in the hand and navigation in the head, few ventured

    like racing cars for example...its not that there arent any with passion for flying, its just not the majority
