I've been simming and loving it for a little over 11 years now. I started out with FS 5.0 which came out a little before FS '95. Things have come a long way since then. Discovered freeware add-ons in 2001 with FS7, and bought my first payware add-on two days ago. It's the PMDG 737NG and I have to say, what a great piece of software. Best $40 I've ever spent!
Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.

Flight simmer from about 5 years ago. I use a lot of types of aircraft but I master the 757 from Project Open Sky. And I fly almost everywhere from dream flights DEL-GIG, to ordinary flights like SFO-LAX, MTY-MEX.

Ive been recording my flights (on paper ) since March 2002, and have logged nearly 300 flights. Around 99% of the flights are ones in real life, and range from as short as a positioning flight from London Heathrow - London Gatwick, to as long as Air New Zealand's Los Angeles - Auckland!
Currently flying as Virgin Atlantic's service from Las Vegas - London Gatwick.

Quoting AIRCANL1011 (Reply 19): Whenever I fly for real I like to do the flight myself before and after the actual trip.
I do that too, and that just reminded me that I have to sim the routes I'm flying next weekend.
I've been FSing for about three years and I have recently completed writing out my third airline's complete timetable as AI (DL; it took forever). I fly 99.9% of my flights as real-world flights. I have all the North American airline PC timetables, so I look up flights, find a good one for the time I have, and fly it. Favorite route is probably SEA-SIT on an AS 734. I flew that route in real life a while ago, was one of the best flights I ever had, and the approach at SIT is intense. I have 827.8 successful hours total as of today (and countless hours unsuccessful), and I'm just about to add some more.

I've been flight simming since my dad got MSFS for our old Mac back in the late 80s or early 90s. I have a pretty respectable setup as far as hardware and add-ons are concerned, but I probably only fly a couple hours a week...too much other stuff to do, beer to drink, etc.

I'm a flightsimmer. First flightsim I saw was "Fighter Pilot" on my best friend big brother's ZX Spectrum back in the early 80's, I was in shock ! Then I discovered MSFS Flight Simulator II on my first computer, the good old Commodore 64. I've done hours and hours of "green&blue" simming ! Then came the Amiga with another sim I don't recall the name (Maybe FA-18) it always started in the vicinity of SFO.
In the 90's I put this hobby aside and went back when I bought my first PC in 1996 with FS? (maybe95)... Now I have a pretty powerful PC and fly it from time to time as I don't have a lot of time, but when I do it, I do it very seriously (planning, fuel, routes, time, real schedule, procedures SID&STARS and so on...) but I've never applied in a VA so far.
I use to fly lots of different routes but mainly from GVA as it's my home airport and use mainly airliners (A319-A330/340-B744-MD11).
