5 1/4" floppy disc 3D Helicopter Simulator was released in 1987and must have been one of the first sims to support head to head play via a modem. For it's time it looked outstanding with 3 dimensional polygon choppers and scenery. John D. Yarrow got his hands on the 5 1/4" version. It occured to me that some readers might never have seen a 5 1/4" disk so I scanned it in it's full glory. 0

Comments - Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer was an ambitious attempt to teach the basics of flight on a personal computer. Edward Lerner developed and programmed it and it featured 14 different flyable aircraft. This exhibit contains AUDIO content.

Chuck Yeager was the first person to break the sound barrier and a virtuoso pilot as well as a Fighter Ace who flew in World War 2, Korea and Vietnam. Do you remember a 1980's flight sim called Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer ? Probably not. Anyway the sim featured a 1 hour cassette of the man himself recounting tales from the workd of flight testing and giving tips on flying in general. Listen to it here - Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer

DX8 debug It seems that in DX8, the debug output switch was left on for DirectSound, and this slows down sound processing and causes problems in some sims. Download this little file and you will be able to turn off the debug functions in DX8. 0

Su-27 2.5 Training Missions Successful repetition breeds success. That's a fundamental guiding principle in training for any complex activity - including flying your simulated jet fighter! These missions are relatively simple. Variables are kept to a minimum and introduced one at a time. That means you'll have fun and be able to keep on top of things while getting the satisfaction that comes from sharpening your skills. Pick a training area - North - South - East or West and start flying. 2000
Su-27 Flanker 2.5 Su-27 Flanker 2.0 was released for Xmas 1999 and this major upgrade was released as a free download in 2001. It allowed you to fly my favourite a/c - the MiG-29 Fulcrum ! It also improved 150 other features of the sim, most of which I illustrate in this exhibit.

I also wrote a very simple set of training missions which you can download.
