    Hello from Ottawa, Canada!

    So after putting more than 30 hours flying on FSX I decided it is worth the time and money (and effort!) to build a cockpit and more than that after my wife saw my now messy office with the Saitek stuff (Yoke, Rudder, Switch Panel, Quadrant) she gave me the go ahead to build a cockpit! As long as it is not on my home office.
    Still a lot to learn but so far I really like it. Played older versions of FS a long time ago and just now decided to try FSX. Great so far.
    As I have a Mac Pro, thinking about trying X-Plane. Apparently all the Saitek gear works on it, at least what I have.
    But with the new modules announced (Multifunction and COM gear stuff) I am sure it will not work right away on X-Plane so I may stick with FSX!
    I will also post about my cockpit shortly so I can start getting ideas!

    Cheers!

    Well better hurry before she changes her mind. Typical for women, heh?

    Anyone else in the Ottawa area? I see you are from Ontario Trevor. Would be great to meet people around here so we can not only have some discussions over a beer or two but also do some online flying every once in a while.
