FS Consortium Formed

Yesterday I was part of a meeting of publishers and other flight simulator parties, discussing what could or should, if anything, be done now that MS has pulled out of that segment of the hobby market. I will report more on the results in a later stage, but suffice to say now that a consortium was formed and will be further set up to promote the use of flight simulator and try and raise/keep awareness of our (potential) customers of the hobby and it’s products and suppliers.

An important ‘by-product’ of that meeting was my (first ever) meeting with Tom Allensworth of Avsim. We have lived in separate worlds ever since I left my volunteer job at Avsim and took up a paid position with simFlight. I guess Tom and I decided at the same time to put our differences aside and that now results in me being back in the Avsim Forums again. I am happy with that and didn’t like the hostile situation over the past 5 or 6 years (how time flies).

So if anything, THAT was a good outcome of the meeting already. Hopefully we’ll see more positive results when weeks pass….. I’ll keep you posted !

Meanwhile I’ve buitl up yet another backlog of work, mainly due to the wedding and subsequent move abroad of our daughter…. she and her husband leave on a plane for Aruba tomorrow morning and ince I’m back from the airport I can finally pick up WORK again……. Phew !!!
