The Flight Simulator experience and other tangential thoughts

New Flight Simulator Fan

Well maybe "fan" is a little strong, but last night was the first time my daughter took any real interest in what I was doing with Flight Simulator.

I was working on a mission for E3, and she walked up wanting to know what I was doing. I showed her the mission and she got pretty excited and was pointing out the targets I had to fly to to complete the mission. Even excited enough to want to see another mission. So I started up another mission and she was pretty interested in the dolphins swimming in the water and said "get down lower so I can see them! Oh yeah, I can see them, that's cool!"

Maybe I can start her with flight lessons soon :)

  • Congratulations!  It's always fun to have kids pick up on your interests.  My daughter (3 years old) also enjoys flight simming to a certain extent but I hope to get her more involved in the future.  My wife has recently made a deal with me that if I help cook for an hour, she will sim with me for an hour, so hopefully this can become a family affair.

  • "swimming dolphins", "targets" ? now that's nice, your little girl knows more about FSX than we do ;-)

    fortunately she (probably) wasn't around when you were still in that "lobotomy racket". I'm beginning to fear the worst for those "missions" in FSX  "Flying over the Cascade mountains we suddenly notice shining, high-speed, disc-shaped, strangely maneuvering objects in the sky. etc..." :-)

  • Hmmm, UFO's... I guess I better start working on that ;)

    Maybe only if you set the date to 1947 and fly the secret easter egg fighter in New Mexico...

    Now I'll sit back and watch the forums go crazy with someone claiming that there's confirmation of UFO's and easter egg aircraft in the product. I hope the sarcasm is obvious enough in text form to know I'm kidding about all of this. :)
