I have been involved in flight simulation for many years. I first started simming using the Commodore 64 when I was kid, and progressed through the years on various platforms, including FS2004, FSX, P3dV4 and many others. I started building a full Boeing 737ng flight deck, and purchased Prosim, which is fantastic. I also purchased all the hardware to build the simulator and panels, however illness has prevented me from moving this project forward currently. I have been a controller with IVAO, and a pilot; I have also used the Vatsim network as a pilot. I have flown virtual flights for British Airways Virtual, TUI airways, and many others. Having gained many hours of flying over the years. I now own many ATC simming products including, TRACON, Xavius ATC suite, Tower, Flight1 ATC suite, and enjoy controlling. I have visited many ATC facilities in real life over the years, that has been a fantastic experience, and I have always found controllers very helpful and happy to chat, when not too busy. I visited Auckland New Zealands ATC facility, and was given a guided tour of the whole facility, including transatlantic reporting room, approach radar, and tower. The ATC staff are extremely friendly and made the visit very interesting.
I am not currently flying, however may get back into controlling at some point. I am currently running a live stream of JFK using P3DV4.
