I'm starting to get into FSX after years of playing DCS & Falcon 4.0 BMS (My original goal in life was to join the Air Force) but none of my friends really have an interest in games like that. Recreational/Commericial Flight Sim's seem very relaxing and obviously do-able with person so I've been giving that a shot.
I really started getting into it a few years ago because I wanted to be a commercial pilot, but I waited too long...so now I just have my flight sim. I've also tried the trucking sim, and want to try out the train sim too.
And now some of the addons for FSX are so detailed in their simulation it's crazy! I mean learning the procedures and FMC of the PMDG made feel like I was actually learning to fly a real 747. So now if I am ever on board a trans-Atlantic flight and the flight crew suddenly becomes incapacitated -- I can calmly stand up and announce to all souls on board, no worries, I got this lol!
Hey, maybe if there enough pilots here we should fly a multi-player session together if we can all find the time -- I know a good server.
And if your interested here is one of my landing vids that was put together from some random flights that I've doen.
