I have known about this for almost a week now and thought it'd be a good idea to bump the post. Im hoping that maybe some of use home builders can register at the Aerosoft forum and offer up some suggestions on what we'd find important for a new FS as home builders.

I am just glad someone is comming to the party. I felt unhappy that Microsoft seemed to loose interest in their excellent series, and have decided not to continue. I wish any one who picks up the batton and continues the very best and may they be as succesfull in their endevours as Microsoft have been, no lets rather say even more successfull.

Honestly.. I would love for some of those Aerosoft people to come here, I would gladly set up some forums for them..

That would be great if we could get them invited in, but since they have well over 30 pages of discussions on it there I dont know how likely it would be. I did go over and make a post there with my 2 cent worth regarding how the builders need a core sim that's powerfull, accessible, and with the ability to network to easily for a function similar to FSUIPC/Simconnect, etc. I wish them the best.

I've been looking through the Aerosoft forum and saw that they are working on a new sim, Mathijs is going about this in a fantastic manner and appears to be building it on customer feedbacktaking the pros and cons from MSFS etc.

He has opened a section for cockpit builders so I am bumping to get you all to go and give feedback/wants/needs etc as we have an almost "fresh start" here to get a product made with us in mind!

Will be interesting to see how this Aerosoft idea develops. There seems to be a misconception that serious money needs to be spent on hardware to meet regulatory requirements. The reality is something completely different. The FTD (flight training device), pictured below, is run on nothing more fancy than eight Dell desktop pcs that you can pick up from most PC stores. The operating system is a mix of Windows XP and Vista. In fact all the IT hardware used in the device is COTS to minimise support costs.

The reality is many organisations do not have the money to invest in high spec computers. Desktop PCs are becoming the norm in many flight simulators/training devices to keep costs down.

Thanks for the link. The Avatar is a rememberance of when South Africa had an airforce. The changing of the badge heralded the brain drain that has decimated the SAAF technical sectors to an extent that if Bob Mugabe got it into his head, I believe we would have trouble fending off an attack by his two remaining Peashooter armed chipmunks. I beleave that is also the root cause of Airlinks problems that have seen them being grounded today.

Howzit, ..

Sad about Airlink, although it's only the Jetstreams gorunded, the jets are still in the air, well, most of them. I have been following the info on avcom.co.za

I know all about the SAAF, my dad flew as a nav on Daks and Venturas, later as a instructor and later examiner on Albats and he flew Shackletons.

I used to love the old airshows back home, . Mirages and Canberras screaming around at low level , ... the Silver Falcons in the Imps and of course the array of Harvards, Choppers and other stuff..... Jislike ek mis die vlamgatte!

Hey I might have a Christmass present for you I repainted a Mk2 Shack as P for pelican its fs2002 freeware The SAAF repaint was done on very basic paint programme but if you want it you can have it. My Email address is rorythomson@ymail.com I also have the Ju52 painted as Tannie Ju. The latest on Tannie Ju is three Harvards gave up their engines to keep her flying and she now sports Casa landing gear. I have also painted two SAA versions of the A380 all FS2002 freeware although I am told the A380 will fly in FS2004 and FSX with a little modification.
