I am 49 and live in Wellington, capital city of New Zealand.
I have 300hrs as a PPL and am a committed flight sim user from FS4.
Along with Sean Galbraith (also a simpits player -it's his fault I am here),
we created and developed the concept of "CSL" (Common Shape Library) which
now resides in Squawkbox and allows pilots worldwide to see others on their
screens in the aircraft that they are in fact flying.
I'm Company Director of an events and convention company
and am currently (just for fun) working in the area of developing
MS Access User Interface designed systems.
My past life(s) have included such diverse things as being
an Airline Despatcher (weight and balance and all that stuff), a radio
personality, advertising executive, offshore yachtsman, rally and race
driver, Young Adult of the Year and general ratbag.
Simpitting is an unfortunate extension to loving to fly both
for real and at the PC. Again, it's time to blame Sean for
the fact that one day he mentioned that an in tact but somewhat derelict
Beech Queenair had been seen at a distant airfield. (yeah right!)
was our reaction. It couldn't be any good was our next reaction.
Our third was, well if it IS any good, we'll never get our hands on it.
So of course; it's no surprise to anyone on this list to
hear that it WAS good and we DID get it and that now we have to do something
about it! Sean has some pics, so I'll let him send them to you.
