Without any real plan or purpose, I figured I would start keeping track of things related to my hobbies, which at the moment include trying to figure out the vast (and complex) world of flight simulators. There is so much to learn and I am coming at it completely green with zero knowledge but long history of curiosity.
The release of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (MSFS) and the global pandemic has fueled what seems to be a massive increase of interest in this hobby. MSFS offers players not just the opportunity to fly along with friends and strangers, but also gives you a complete map of earth to explore complete with real time weather and air traffic if you so choose.
It is literally possible to see the world, and with global travel coming to almost a complete stop over the last year, it’s one of the only ways you can do so safely.
If you want to get a taste of what this is like, head over to Twitch and checkout the hundreds of out of work pilots helping newbs like myself learn how to fly and giving tours of popular destinations.
