I also talk FSDreamTeam, P3D4, Aerosoft’s Barcelona and the competition on that airport, IDS KSMF, Bellingham, landings, Taxi2Gate St Louis, my wishlist for next month and my recent activities in the sim.

In this episode a next gen sim gets voted off the show! I spend the rest of the episode talking about the serious sim market and what platform I think PMDG, Aerosoft, A2A, TFDi, and LevelD will use. There is some heavy X Plane 11 talk and a lot of marketing talk that may be good for your next crew rest.

In this episode I react to Rob Randazzo's comments on Next Gen sims and bring out an old review of FSX
In this episode I talk with Kalene Petitt about using P3D for home training by air crews. Delving into safety, we talk about what can happen to some crews at some airlines when the crew alleges safety violations or reports safety concerns to the company. In Karlene’s new book Flight For Sanity, Section 8 of Darby’s union contract is used to sideline her for mental health analysis. How could something meant to prevent another GermanWings accident be used to sideline pilots? And what implications does this have for pilots who have legitimate mental health concerns?
In this episode I Aimee Sanjari answers the questions I posed in the original episode and throws us something extra
In this podcast I talk about my initial reaction to the announcement of Flight Sim World. I also talk liquid cooled heat sinks and flight sim addition.. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and donate on fsridealong.libsyn.com
