    Eddie visit

    Mycockpit member Eddie Armaos (oal331) visited me today and had a flight in my sim, I never realised how much a skilled pilot can do in a hardware sim, i honestly thought i could fly competently lol not now though, Eddie showed me a lot of things i thought were only possible in other peoples fully functioning simulators, not my budget airlines knockoff.

    We flew Athens - Paphos and as soon as he started to program the fmc, from memory!! it was like wow.

    To see my sim in the hands of an expert and to see it operate the way it should, correctly, made me proud that i built it and made me determined now to get my head down and start studying properly. Its too easy to leaf through instruction manuals and then think im an expert.

    It was a great couple of hours and i hope the 1st of many visits from fellow simmers who can show me the ropes. It sure beats flying alone.

    Anyway im waffling, Thanks Eddie





    Cheers Steve

    That's great Steve, really glad you had a great time, and what a privilege it is to have a real world pilot flying your simulator. I hope you learnt from the experience and I'm sure you will pass the knowledge on and that your cockpit will expand in time to come!

    (My parents are buying a villa in Cyprus very soon so will have to pop round mate! lol)

    A quick link to Eddie's flight sim Website. He has been kind enough to put his visit up on his front page and posted a few more pictures.

    Thanks Eddie

    Re: Eddie visit

    Hello everyone and Happy New Year!!
    Back to Athens now and i just saw this post from Steve.

    I was the lucky one, who had this wonderful visit to Steve's Cockpit and i had a great evening

    His cockpit is full functional and you can make a complete flight, almost without mouse clicks, but via instruments. The custom made shell gives you a real feeling of the cockpit's environment and the external view, based on 2 projectors, is very wide and impressing His cockpit is based on PMDG's 737NG and without expensive panels, hardware and software has nothing less in functionality and feeling than other expensive cockpits.
    I'm sure that Steve is enjoying much more his cockpit from the day one, than me, as i was building for years to have just before a few months something to fly !!

    More pics from my visit here : www.737.gr

    Steve, thanks for your hospitality, i'm waiting you here in Athens, in my cockpit!!

    Best regards

    Eddie
