45 and counting.


The "bug" first started in 1988, with Spitfire 40 (from Mirrorsoft, on the ZX Spectrum), though the first time I felt trully immersed was with F-15 Strike Eagle III (from Microprose, on PC/DOS) in 1992 - that was pretty amazing then.

I've been intermittently on and off flight sims (sometimes years without flight simming) and I spent time with pretty much every known combat fight sim, but since 2014 to present it's been mostly DCS World.

39 in December. LHX Attack Chopper was my first PC game as a little child and since then addicted to flight sims. Even while it was more like playing around without any clue, i'd say Microprose' F-14 Fleet Defender was my first true flight sim. Then went along with literally everything the market provided until the end of the golden flight sim age in the late 90's, Strike Commander, U.S. Navy Fighters, most of Jane's, all of the TFX titles, LOMAC and Falcon 4.0 just to name a few. But always playing other games too. DCS is installed since 2014, but was unable to get away from BMS until the DCS Hornet entered early access. Now DCS is my only flight sim and i rarely play other games.

I’m 31

I'm 43 going on 12 :)

[...]Still suck at dogfighting, and consider myself lucky if 1/4 of my bombs take out any tanks/trucks instead of just leaving smoking holes in the dirt :)


and that’s how I will be some years from now :lol:


I started playing DCS in 2015. It all started with a question to myself: <<It’s Sunday, I don’t feel like going out... what can I do? Maybe I could learn something on the Internet... like... hey, I don’t know how to fly an airplane>>, so I started watching videos. Then I wondered whether there was a free flight simulator and which simulator was the most realistic...


My flightsim hobby actually had a chance to start way earlier. When I was something like 11 or 12 I was presented with the Jane’s F18 Super Hornet simulator but it was just too difficult and it was all in English, that I knew only at a basic level, so it just sat in a drawer for years. Back then Youtube didn’t exist; I didn’t even know the existence of the word “tutorial”. I wish someone thought me how to use it: I found it fascinating. Really, one of the things that I would teach myself if only I could go back in the past would be how to use that sim.

Planes: FC3, Spitfire, Harrier, F-14, F-18, MiG-21, Edge 540 - Helicopters: UH-1H, Mi-8 - Environments: Persian Gulf, Supercarrier
