Developer Month: A Summary From This Week


This week on Developer Month we had some great articles with them some great people from the community. We have even more coming next month which I am sure many will enjoy with some big guests. You can find all of our developer articles through this link.

  1. Interview with Aerosoft’s Mathijs Kok

We kicked off the week in style with an interview from Aerosoft’s Mathijs Kok, a well known veteran within the flight simulation community if you have ever set foot into the Aerosoft forums. We took some time to find out a little bit more about his life outside of flight simulation and how he got into it in the first place. We also asked a couple of questions regarding Aerosoft and how the large flight simulation company works. If you would like to take a look at this article for yourself then you can check it out by following this link.

2. Interview with TFDi Designs 

Next up we had an interview with TFDi designs, the great team that have brought us products such as smartCARS and the fabulous 717. In this interview we spoke to the guys behind TFDi designs. We asked a variety of questions ranging from ‘what is your favourite power drink?’ to ‘why did you choose to develop the 717?’. A great bunch of guys who look to be going big places in the flight simulation scene. I would highly recommend this article if you are a fan of any of TFDi’s work and upcoming plans. You can find the article through this link.

3. Interview with Drzewiecki Design

Our third article for this week was another interview, this time with well renound developers Drzewiecki Design. They have brought many products including products such as New York City X, Warsaw Chopin and more recently, Washington X. A group of developers who are veterans to the flight simulations community with their first product releasing in 2003. We once again asked questions about what they do away from flight simulation and how their develpment process works. You can find the article through this link.

4. Carenado – They aren’t All that Bad

For our fourth installment of Developer Month this week we enjoyed a video from our very own Timothy Thomas (CountyFlyboy). In this video Timothy talks about his thoughts upon the well known developer, Carenado. Over the years Carenado has created a reputation for themselves of creating very good looking aircraft that are relatively empty system wise. Timothy aims to disprove this theory within his video and does a very convincing job of it. If you wish to check it out for yourself then follow this link.

5. Interview with Orbx’s Alex Goff

Our firth installment for Developer Month for this week was an interview with Orbx developer Alex Goff. Alex is behind Orbx sceneries including Meigs Field (KCGX) and Goheen Airport (W52). Both excellent products that we at FSElite would highly recommend to the community. Within this interview we speak with Alex about the future of flight simulation and how he managed to snatch a job at one of the best developers in flight simulation. You can find the article at this link.

6. Interview with iBlueYonder

Last but not least we have an interview with Bill from iBlueYonder. The developers behind products such as Nantucket Island. Within this interview we spoke with Bill regarding some of his personal stories and why he chose to become a flight simulation developer. An excellent read and one I would highly recommend. Bill made sure to spare not detail in his answers. If you wish to read this article then you can find it at this link.

We have really enjoyed Developer Month so far and we hope you have to. Week 3 is looking to be another great week with some great articles, videos and more coming up for you. For now please enjoy our whole range of developer month material.

I've always had a passion for aviation from a very young age. I started simming for the first time in 2010 and have been hooked ever since. A member of FSElite since its early days, I have enjoyed being a part of the rapid growth that has taken place over the last year. Which has propelled us to become one of the largest flight simulation media sites. I look forward to the future and would like to thank you all for the continued support. | View My Specs
