Welcome to the FSElite Developer Month. Our theme this year is about delivering for the community and part of that is delivering great content to you all. As part of our commitment to you all, we’re pleased to announced Developer Month – a month themed solely around celebrating our great development community. Over the course of March, you’ll be treated to some behind the scene looks at some of our favourite developers, stories from the FSElite team, exclusive interviews and more.
Tell us a little about yourself and how you got started?
I’m 28 years old and live with my wife and cat in a small village about 30 minutes north of Cambridge in the UK.
My interest in aviation stems from my Dad. He served in the Royal Air Force for 23 years so aviation was always a big part of my life. I used to visit RAF bases, air shows and aviation museums regularly, and after getting my first PC at the age of 8, I started flight simming with products such as ‘Evasive Action’ and other DOS-based games. My first encounter with Microsoft’s Flight Simulator was FS2000 and I became an avid follower of the franchise, and a loyal fan of Just Flight as both a customer and forum member.
I was offered the opportunity to do some temp work for Just Flight on their VFR Real Scenery project in the summer of 2006. Shortly thereafter I joined the technical support team and 11 years later I’m still here! During that time I’ve had a variety of roles including technical support, product management and software development (primarily coding the gauges/system for our aircraft projects).
