    FDS B777 Sim ride!

    Hi guys,
    I had a ride in the FDS B777 sim based here in Perth, Western Australia a couple of weeks ago.



    Awesome sim, FDS gear is top notch. We did a few "Kai Taks" and the projection system using Nthusim is outstanding, more expense for my sim!!!
    I've had the pencil out again and there might be a feature story coming up in PC Pilot...

    See www.flightcity.com.au

    Cheers Gwyn

    Look forward to the article Gwyn, I'll try to get some pix to you soon.

    BTW Gwyn hand flew this baby like a pro. I'm sure if things had been a bit different he would be in the left hand seat of a major airline being adequately compensated for his talents.

    Cheers,

    Ken.

    Cheers,

    Ken.
    Have you seen some of the pay scales? It's what I have to look forward to when I start flying a B1900 in a few months as a newly hired commuter pilot.
