I have been an aviation enthusiast from the time I was a
youngster. During the height of the Vietnam War I enlisted for a four year term in the U.S. Air Force where I
was trained to be a Jet Aircraft Technician (Fighters). I worked on the T-33, RF-101,
F-102, F-106, RF-4, and F-4C, D,E.
After my discharge from the Air Force, I took advantage of
the, then offered, Flight Training funded by the G.I. Bill. My flight training was in the Piper J3, Stearman,
and Cessna 150. I also have flight time in the Piper 140, Cessna 172, and Piper 180.
Due to lack of sufficient funds, I never continued my
pursuit of a flying career, but got hooked on flight simulators...primarily Microsoft Flight Simulator©. I
have had every version since the very first. I have tried several others over the years, but always stuck
with MSFS. However; being extremely disappointed with FSX, FS9 will probably be the last of the Microsoft
simulators. I do have X-Plane, but have not yet spent too much time with it. That may change very
In the Spring of 1999 I joined WestWind Virtual Airlines. Doing so added a new level of enthusiasm for
flight simming. Over the years I have served in the capacities of Assistant Hub Manager, Hub Manager,
Director of Cargo Operation, V.P. of Hub Operations, Exec. V.P. of Hub Operations and Exec. V.P. of
Scenery. I am now retired from management, but am still an active member.
I hope you enjoy my work. It's not fancy, but it is free,
the files are relatively small and it is frame-rate friendly. If you run across any airports that have major
flaws, send me an email with the details. I'll take a look at it and, time permitting, will fix it. In the
mean time stop back frequently to see what is new.
Also, please consider a small donation to help with the
cost of maintaining this web site. Even a couple dollars will help.
