Chino reports - "Iíve always had a "thing" for airplanes.

When I was a kid, I built airplane models, and flew orientation flights with Civil Air Patrol. In the last few years, Iíve had flight sims, web sites, internet friends who share my enthusiasm for aviation, air shows, museums, and now at last, real flying lessons.

Flight Testing your sim.

Jeremy King wrote in to thank me for the flight test cards:
