FSRideAlong

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.

Lastly you can find my Discord here.

If you like what you see and here please donate, follow, rate and review on the appropriate media outlet. Thanks so much for listening and viewing. It means the world to me.

Happy landings!

FSRideAlong Season 3 Ep 21 Rob Burgen and The 737

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 .

You can find Rob’s book Piano Burning and Other Fighter Pilot Traditions here. We interviewed him about his book in Season 3 Episode 5 of FSRideAlong.

FSRideAlong SE 3 Ep12 Next Gen Sims 2

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.
