i'm just curious as to whether anyone into
FB is a r/l pilot. also, does anyone know
if any guys who actually flew the planes in
this game are involved with testing. it'd
be cool to get thier take on the FM and DM.

I've been flying on and off for 12 years. At 17 years and two weeks old I was the youngest holder of a PPL in the UK even before I had my drivers license.

I spent 4 years with the RAF from a Scholarship into pilot training and have nearly 1000 hours in RAF aircraft. Mainly the Tucano and Hawk with a rough 60-40 split.

Don't fly so much now but I still do when I can. Over the past few years with my busines I've managed to put myself into a position where I can fly a lot more often and will be flying a lot more again in 2004. Although it's just a hobby again for me now.

This game is litterally full of RL pilots, both novices, and experienced. I am of the occasional, novice type, and its funny how the non-pilots shoot me down constantly. FB is a great leveling ground.

I once flew a twin engine Cheyenne 4 from san diego to burbank in the co-pilots seat. Does that count? or do I need to log more hours=)

I have a US Private license
not that it means a whole lot since the ME262 flies slightly diferently than the '76 Cessna 172 I am used to

A total of about two hours flight time in wich I was authorized to keep the aircraft flying in an approx straight line http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hahhah, indeed.

I haven't found that real world flying experience helps in many ways in sims. It certainly hasn't made me an ance anyway.
