    Do you currently own Flight Simulator X and would like to join the multiplayer experience and go on coordinated flights across the globe in Boeing or Airbus Jetliners?? Join me and my buddy SrSparky32 in some flights every couple nights.

    How it all does down:

    We always choose an departing airport and then a destination and plane. Once we have that all squared away we set up out GPS and auto pilot systems for the flying route. Basically from there on out we let the autopilot fly for us, but we also take screen shots. Since there is a chat box on FSX Multiplayer we are able to all talk to each other so it adds to the fun. After each flight we will post our screenshots in this thread so we can all discuss the flight and maybe recruit new people. You will learn more about these flying experiences when you start flying with us.

    Not only do you do commercial airliner flights, we fly around together in fighter jets like f16 f18 and a 10 in formation and do air shows and racing. So many things we can all do, and its great fun! :toast:

    Any questions? PM me Please

    If you are interested in flying with us put your steam name down(for contacting about flight schedules) and ill add you to the TPU Flight Simulator Pilot list.

    NOTE: I may try and get an official club going if i can get this started on a high note.

    Since I work in air traffic security, I actually know what the instruments do lol. However landing a plane on an ILS glide slope without an autopilot is harder than expected.

    Fun fact: The pilots of Swiss airlines train with FSX. I was in the simulator once, an Airbus A320. 1:1 cockpit copy. I landed the plane with the help of the PAPI lol.

    Anyway if I ever get around installing and playing FSX again I come back at you. I don't have a joystick now, and with the keyboard its incredibly hard to fly correctly. Also, just one monitor is just not enough.

    My brother has it on 360 it is good, but honestly no where as good as the DCS, Lock and IL2 series. Btw their are some very high quality F16s, F4 Phantoms etc on Simviation.com
