I’ve been a very passionate flight simmers for over 12 years now and am one of the biggest AvGeeks you will meet. I make cinematic flight sim videos, and I also do a lot of real-world plane spotting in my free time. My favourite aircraft is the Boeing 747, and I always enjoy learning more and more about aviation and flight simming.
