Post Kilstorm »

Just wanting to start a thread to allow anyone to post about them self allowing others to put a face to a voice or a way to get a better understanding of the environment fellow pilots are when they are doing MP flights with ya.

Nathan and all,

Nathan, VERY nice setup you have there!

Long time FS user (back to 1989 or so), sim builder (F-16 and Spitfire), real world pilot (pretty much ONLY aerobatics these days). A2A Spitfire Beta Tester and advisor. About 200 hours on the Spitfire so far but I am only counting from now on in my brand new logbook.

Married (23 years), mid forties, day job : professional in finance.

Part time researcher for areas that interest me, much done for other authors.
Research areas:

Spitfire,
Battle of Britain,
World War One Aviation.

One book researched and half written (but then, hasn't EVERY researcher), no novels started :lol:

Hi, nice to meet you too.

a very new kid on the A2A block, attracted here by the Spitfire.
Married, two grown daughters. Retired after 23 years in Flight Simulation Support plus older stuff no where near as interesting.
Volunteer at Tangmere Aviation Museum, UK.
Been flying on-line WWII combat sims for 16 years (no spitting please) and FSX for about a year. I wouldn't claim to fly 'properly' :)
Recently got X-Plane and a new PC.
RL flying limited to the usual Chipmunk, Transport and Gliding Licence of many many years ago as an air cadet plus passengering over many years on commercials and a bit of light a/c.

Aviation addict, especially WWII types.

Computer Specs: i7 950 running 4GHz on Megahalems air cooler, 6Gb Corsair Dominator RAM, EVGA superclocked GTX570, Crucial 128Gb SSD, 750W PSU, HAF912+ case, Win 7 64bit, 22" Samsung 225BW.
"Cockpit": nowhere near Kilstorms standard, just the usual PC desk in the small bedroom. Saitek controls: X52 Pro, Rudders plus X45 throttle for RPM, some trims and miscellaneous controls.

Hoping to find some Euro-zone on-line Spitfire flying.

Thought I would drop in and say hello here as I will be getting online soon hopefully. My name is Stewart (Flightname will probably be Killerwatt) I am 60 years old and semi retired. I have one grown up Daughter who works for Bank of Ireland in Dublin and one Grown up Son who is currently serving with the RAF in Afghanistan.

I was actually born on RAF Grangemouth in 1950 and have been interested in the RAF and in particular the Battle of Britain for as far back as I can remember. I spent many a day of my childhood playing in what was left of the airfield. I remember some dispersal blast pens which were a favourite haunt for us and also some pill boxes and the site of an AA gun emplacement. Very little of the field remains now, only a couple of hangars which are now industrial buildings.

During the lead up to the BoB RAF Grangemouth was visited frequently by Planes of 602 and 603 squadrons who each sent a flight of spitfires to the station on a daily basis for a time. Another famous visitor was Adolf "Sailor" Malan who was posted to 58 OTU in Grangemouth in August 1941 as Chief Flight Instructor before travelling to the USA, two months later, with several other pilots to meet and lecture with the US Army Air Corps.

Im looking forward to getting into the air with you guys soon when I become a bit more proficient with the Spit.

I get a 404 off that link, Dudley.

I'm in the UK, and my FS set up is nothing more than a non-descript desk and a Warthog HOTAS secured to the arms of my chair.

My day job is anything IT related, though I'm developing serious security solutions at the moment (I try and distance myself as much as possible from the fools who call themselves IT Security experts but who end up creating systems that get breached e.g. at Sony). I have a lot of questions I'd like to ask them!

Best regards,
Robin.

Yes. the sponsor of the site changed hands and the new owner has taken the aviation material off the site.
For me, I have a few hours and enjoyed flying very much.

Hey guys,

My name is Nathan, I just purchased the Accusim Thunderbolt. I still fly on my old crappy sidewinder 2, using the twist rudder control, so no fancy set up so far. I still occassionally burn up Pratt and Whitneys on the P-47. I am really looking for someone to fly with, either the Jug, or any of A2As warbirds. Both for fun, and to help me learn the ropes. Im not a real pilot, so far any way... Hopefully soon that will all change. My name online is the same as here, unless most of you guys use some other way to get online. Thanks for the great plane A2A, hopefully many many more to come!

Nathan

Hello all,

Somewhat new here to A2A. I bought my first Warbird a few weeks ago, the P-51, then stepped it up a bit wit the P47, Spitfire and Bf109.

I've been flying in FSX for about a year now. I learned the default GA aircraft and quickly moved into flying the big iron. Shortly, thereafter I joined a VA and began accumulating alot of hours.

In the interim I've been braking the monotony by flying online/multiplayer. Mostly with modern military AC, but recently have been bitten by the WWII bug. I'd love to fly online but it appears most of your MP sessions are on Friday/Sats. Therefore should anyone be interested in getting together around 1800 GMT on Mon/Tue I'm game. :)

I also have a facebook page I created just for FSX multiplayer. Its called FSX Multiplayer Meet & Greet! Please stop by to say hello. I post all my upcoming events/sessions there. And you can see pics of alot of the AC I've flown.

I'm really enjoying flying these old time warbirds. They definitely bring new definition to landing. I can't tell you how many times I nosed over the Spitfire coming in on approach too hot..lol.. sure takes some practice.

Anyway, nice to meet everyone. I look forward to flying with you!

Cheers,

Brandon

Hello all,

I am 15 living in Calgary Canada. I Have been flying in the early FSX day's and have loved it ever since. I was first brought to A2A with the Accu-sim B17. I am currently in the early stages of getting my pilots license here and hope to be flying it the coming years.

I fly using a Logitec 3D pro, and hope to be buying some pedals in the next year or so. I fly in Windows 7 in bootcamp. Now heres a shocker- I use a MACBOOK PRO 13in with 2gb of RAM and unlike popular belief, It is very good at FSX. I run medium-high and get about 25-35 FPS. I Have about 500GB of storage and also use a Larger monitor for maps and also flying utilities


I also fly with the 91 BG which is a group dedicated to flying B17 on real world flights that the real 91st would have flown.
Here is a link to there website- http://www.91stbombardmentgroup.com/

It is nice meeting you all and happy landing's!
