Flight Simulators

Flight Simulators

My interest in flying got started in the early 1980's when I went on a few flights with my friend from Cranston, RI, Len Ruppert, who worked at one of my favorite haunts - Heath Electronics. He had his pilot's license and needed to get flights under his belt, so I went flying with him. I lost touch with Len in 1984, when I moved to Florida, so Len, if you find this, send along an email!

I first got interested in flight simulator software back in the early 1980's, with a flight simulator program for my Timex/Sinclair ZX81 in 1982, and Flight Simulator II for my Radio Shack Color Computer (Coco). Later, in the Windows world, I got into Micropose's Strike Eagle II, and then got the Operation Desert Storm scenery add-on for it. There were two or three other flight simulator programs that I got, but then life simply got too busy and that fun wained.

Now, in late 2012, I built-up a new faster PC, and once again got the urge to enjoy some flight simulators, so I picked up Flight Simulator X, Gold Edition, on a recent trip down to Cambridge, MA and MicroCenter.

I have almost immediately gotten the bug to create my own scenery files. Probably enhanced by the fact that I work as a CADD Technician for an engineering company's aviation division. So, I am planning on creating scenes for Brunswick Executive Airport, KBXM, in Brunswick, Maine.

My thoughts for BXM are to start with the original runway configurations, including the light-than-air (LTA) mooring masts. Hopefully, I will be able to find an LTA aircraft appropriate to the 1940's timeframe.

I will keep these tasks updated on this webpage, as well as making the scenery files available here for free download, with links to other resources created by others, to complement my work.

Microsoft Flight Simulator, Version 1

Microsoft Flight Simulator, Version 1 (circa 1985, Tandy 1000 version)



This was one of my first flight simulator programs. It was originally produced by Bruce Artwick's company, subLOGIC Corporation, in 1979, for the Apple II platform. Other platform versions followed, 1980 - TRS-80; and 1982 - IBM PC. The version that I purchased for around $50 in 1985, was the Tandy 1000 version, Radio Shack's part number 26-5379.

The text from the 1985 Radio Shack catalog, for this item:

New! Microsoft Flight Simulator
A real-time flight simulator program. The simulation considers 35 important aircraft characteristics and includes an out-the-window three-dimensional dynamic flight display and extensive flight controls. Flight Simulator features detailed graphics that closely simulate a pilot's actual perspective. Flight instruments look and behave like the real thing. The "world" is more than 10,000 square miles and encompasses the entire continental United States and extends into Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. The "populted" world consists of four areas and includes more than 80 airports. Winds, clouds, time of day (for dawn, day, dusk and night flight) and navigation aids are also included. In "easy flight mode", you fly in optimal conditions and use only the primary flight instruments and controls. Select "reality flight mode" to simulate more sophisticated flight factors. in either mode, you can add environmental conditions, such as wind, time of day and turbulence. In addition to the easy and realistic simulation modes, it includes the WWI Ace war game, which lets you test your dogfighting and bombing skills. Also runs on the Tandy 2000, Tandy 1200 HD, and the IBM PC and PC Compatibles.

About this Webpage

A set of webpages that I have prepared about flight simulator programs. They range from Micropose's Strike Eagle II to Miscrosoft's Flight Simulator X (FSX). Also, I hope to include a fairly good profile of FSX links to scenery and aircraft development.
