In this episode I share my reactions to EAA’s preview of FS2020. The article was written by Hal Bryan former Flight Sim developer and current Senior Editor for EAA Digital and Print Content and Publications. We will be hearing directly from Hal in the next episode!
Way back in 2010 (before Twitch) I started a thing called FSRideAlong. The idea was to take you the listener along as I did my virtual globe trotting in Flight Sim. Needless to say, the idea didn’t go as well as I had hoped but the show has evolved a bit and you can find current episodes below.
As the internet evolved and video streaming became a thing I started a Twitch Channel also called FSRideAlong (I refer to it as the video version). You can find it here.
In this episode I wonder if comparing every flight sim plane developer to PMDG is a good idea. I also talk about my recent flight sim activity. I also talk about my upgraded computer. Lastly, I mention my search for a job in the flightsim or aviation industry My renewed FSRideAlong Stream is available at twitch.tv/nicnacjak
In this episode we talk with Rob Burgon about his new job flying the 737. We talk about how the aircraft has the overhead panel that brings you back to the 60s when it was designed while the instrument panel features the glass cockpit you’d expect from a modern airliner. We also talk a little about the reality of choosing a plane to fly in a modern airline .
In this episode I announce that I won’t be attending FlightSimCon this year but will be dedicating the donations to attending next year. I also talk FSDreamTeam, P3D4, Aerosoft’s Barcelona and the competition on that airport, IDS KSMF, Bellingham, landings, Taxi2Gate St Louis, my wishlist for next month and my recent activities in the sim. Lastly, I recommend a panel video podcast called On Approach
Despite my success with FSRideAlong and related projects things have hit a sour note. Lots of ego little external validation. My thanks to my Mom, Paige, Aimee, and Meagan for helping me get through the week. You can check out Meagan’s research work here
In this episode a next gen sim gets voted off the show! I spend the rest of the episode talking about the serious sim market and what platform I think PMDG, Aerosoft, A2A, TFDi, and LevelD will use. There is some heavy X Plane 11 talk and a lot of marketing talk that may be good for your next crew rest. If you have feedback email email@example.com
