You may not know the name “Mettar Simulations“, but you likely know the main man behind that name very well.
Matt Davies is well known in our community for his Twitch streams and YouTube channel (formerly going by the screen name Belynz, saving the P3D Tweak Assistant tool (better known as PTA) from being relegated to history by the previous owner and developer, while also giving life to the popular projectFLY flight log-book and dispatch web-app which started the chain of events that lead to the creation of Mettar Simulations.
Matt has spoken freely about the plans for his company on his Twitch streams in the past, giving some details to his followers, but generally not going too far into detail. Thankfully though, he has released a statement via Facebook today giving us an insight as to what happens from here for Mettar.
He starts off by describing the beginnings of the company, how it came to be, and details the team that he has on board. Continuing, he tells of the events that lead to the creation of the company, such as PTA, projectFLY, Simstall, and the start of his highly-anticipated A380 project.
The overview that follows goes further into detail on these projects, such as where they’re at now, and what the plans for the future are.
projectFLY is already released, as most would know, but Matt says that it’s not being forgotten just because it’s the eldest child. He tells us that the team are continuously improving on the website, adding features and data accuracy, fixing bugs, and providing support to the many users already making use of the free tools every day. He describes it as:
An all in one solution to your virtual flying. Using our state of the art desktop application, you can browse global schedules (updated every 30 days), dispatch flights using real dispatching software (yes, the exact same as real airlines use on a daily basis), manage your own fleet and track your flights in real time. It’s the fanciest logbook you’ll ever use. projectFLY is free to use.
