Hello, I am living in Geneva, Switzerland, I am 56, married with a charming wife ValÃ©rie and we have a 12 year old boy who is a great fan of PS3 games....where he beats me all the time !
I have been working with airlines (SAS, Air Afrique, Qantas) and heading travel departments all my life as I am fan or airplanes and travel since I was a small boy going with my father to Geneva airport to see the legendary 707, DC8, DC9, 727, BAC 1-11, Trident, Caravelle and our national carrier famous Convair 990s Coronado...
I remember the first 747 that landed in my home town, a TWA example in 1970. Very impressed !
Its now more than 17 years since I discovered my first sim: FS98.
Like many of you I have seen the huge improvements overs the years with FS2002, FS9, FSX and now I just have installed Prepar3D, version 2.4, on November 2014.
I have been flying with the famous aircrafts proposed over the years that made the sim to look more and more like real, I think about the legendary Dreamfleet 737 400, the PMDS 737 series, Air A320 PIC.
Last year, I have discovered the Orbx products from FTX Global, to Vector and finally the superb Open LC Europe textures which make our sim so immersive and beautiful. I fly mostly in the south of Europe, using the Quality Wings RJ85/100 or the Majestic Dash8 400, my usual bases are Ajaccio and Bastia in Corsica, Cagliari and Olbia in Sardinia as well as Palermo and Catania in Sicilly. I like these places as the Open LC textures are so nice and diverse in this area.
I am happy to join this place and share discussions and screenshots with all of you.
