Our next meeting is on this Thursday night, June 12, 2014, 7:30-9:30 PM.
We will be changing things up for this meeting. Our resident flight instructor, Allan, will be taking a break from the awesome navigation course that he has been teaching us, as he is out of town. Instead, another great Sim pilot, Robbie, will be doing a presentation on VATSIM. For some of us, flying in VATSIM will be the ultimate goal of where we want to go. It certainly is, for me. VATSIM is short for Virtual Air Traffic Simulator, and is an online place where real people (sim pilots and sim ATC folks), meet in the simulated world of flying and communicating with air traffic control (ATC), and the other pilots around you. If you are interested in learning more about VATSIM, please join us this Thursday night.
The meeting starts at 7:30 PM, but I’ll be arriving a bit early to set up my rig with yoke, rudder pedals, and throttle quadrant. As always, the location is at the Shearwater Aviation Museum (glass doors, on left side of building), in the HMCS Bonaventure Flight Ops room.
See you all there!
