Hello everyone,

I got into this hobby about eight years ago starting with FSX and not knowing anything about flying. I went from default GA aircraft to buying a book on how to really fly and navigate in the virtual world and learned quite a lot. After a while, I could get in a GA aircraft and navigate VOR to VOR from Missouri to California and not get lost. I then got heavy into online flying and joining a small VA that I am still in. I have spent lots of money since then on hardware upgrades, aircraft and scenery. What an exciting time for us simmers to be living in. Then all of a sudden the worst thing happened to me, I became an FMC junky and forgot what is was like to actually fly. After mastering automated flight, ha ha,  I purchased the Concorde in 2014 for fsx thinking how hard could that be. I know how to setup an autoland, fly sids and stars on autopilot. Boy did I feel stupid when I got in the Concorde, it was way over my head. As time went on P3D started getting more advanced, so I started moving to that platform. I never revisited the FSX version of the Concorde until recently and fell in love, so much that I recently purchased the Concorde X for P3D and let me tell you, this aircraft has brought me new found passion for the hobby. It is hands down the most challenging payware I have purchased and that is what brought back the passion. I am now revisiting all those GA aircraft that I have spent so much money on. I have been turning of the gps, doing the check lists on every aircraft. I have also started playing around with failures and the procedures to follow when there is one. The days of endless automated flight will be fewer thanks to you guys.

I just wanted to say thank you Flightsimlabs for such a wonderful product and bringing back my passion for the hobby. I can't wait for the A320.
