  1. One of our dedicated member, of another club I belong to, has put together a 20 page document of Aviation terms. Many of us may be aware of most of the terms but I think some will see a term or two that they may not be familiar with. Here is the URL: http://redhmt.110mb.com/Files/Aviation%20Terms.pdf Enjoy and many thanks to Jim Kenny (Vorona Aviation). Wayne

    Aviation History

    Two great stories... Enjoyed them both. Thanks guys, Nice to see you on line Jack.
  3. Just wanted to pass on that I located an AFCAD file for Ocala International/Taylor Airport. If you want to spruce up the scenery for the airport then go to: http://www.avsim.com and search for KOCF in FSX section. Talked with the author and he says it will not work in FS9 and he doesn't have any way to test if on his system. :sadblinky: It is still worth while having if you like buildings at airports. :roll: Wayne
  4. Nice find John, I have been listening to ATC since I logged in. I also like the KOCF information scrolling across the top of the banner. Thanks for the notice, Wayne
  5. Just to let all the locals know... :yes: I sent in an announcement to WRZN radio, 720 AM dial. They announce upcoming events at about 1030 AM and 430 PM daily. Tune in and let me know if and when you hear it. Thanks, Wayne :mrhappy:

    Welcome

    Dave, Nice to see you made it here. What did you want me to send you? We were talking about night flying and other things so I am confused. Wayne
  8. Nice touch...Everyone seem to have something to say and I think all got insight to the others flying activities. Discussions on XP vs Vista and FS9 vs FSX were some key topics. Those doing night flying and use of audio operations had some questions and some GOOD advice came out.Since I arrived on time (0900 + 2 min), I am not aware of what transpired prior to my being seated. Maybe someone can add to the post with their recollections.To get the most out of the get-together I had to do some chair-hopping to meet with everyone. Not a problem though and well worth the effort.For those who didn't, or where unable to, attend I recommend you put this activity on your calendar for next month.Wayne
  9. It looks like I will be attending. Hope to see more pilots at the breakfast.... Wayne
  10. This is let everyone know that the June meeting was quite busy... First of all Dave Clark came with a box which contained name tags for everyone, a list of current and pass members, and some printed copies of Gosport the Initial Ocala Flight Sim Club newsletter. This was only Dave's second meeting and his desire to jump right in and be a significant part of the organization is extremely commendable. Thanks Dave for all your work. Even though someone (me) didn't get the meeting notice to the newspaper early enough to be included in the "Happening in and around Ocala" section we still had two new members attend; Charles Caravetta and Henry Jazwinski. Great to have you guys on board we look forward to getting to know you better and hope you are ready to join in and share your experiences, questions, and answers with the members. The high point of the meeting was Chan's dual presentations on X-Plane 9 and the TrackerIV system. X-Plane 9 seems to have a lot to offer if you just need another SIM program but it appears to be lacking in aircraft, selection and scope, of aircraft classifications. TrackerIV was exciting to watch, to see what it does and how effective it can be in a virtual environment. Many laughs where heard when Chan was demonstrating how to adjust the head movement to the display. He showed how you could control the amount of deflection of the head piece pickup and how it would be displayed, which was fine but when he would turn his head to answer a question (before he reset the sensitivity) the display presented some very weird screen shots. Everyone was pleasantly pleased and our thanks go to Chan for a job well done. Because the club does not have a volunteer to take notes at the meeting I thought I would post a few words to let others know about our progress and what they miss when they can't make it to the meetings. Another Thanks is in order for Mutley'sHanger for sponsoring the OFSC forum. A fine gesture and one that we all appreciate. Naturally, I forgot some items and your forgiveness is desired. Till next month... Wayne
  11. Is Jack aware of the OSFC on Mutley's Hanger? Glad to hear that he is getting better. Wayne :clap:

    For all you young pilots out there here is the Gosport Tube As you can see the Instructor in the back seat does all the talking and the student does all the listening... Wayne :clap:

    Welcome

    Welcome to the Ocala Flight Sim Club web pages, courtesy of Mutleyshanger. This should and could be a great way to spread information about the club, members, and activities. Please check in often and jot a few lines to show our appreciation for this site. I will be posting as often as possible and welcome your comments. Happy (SIM) flying, Gunker (Wayne)
  14. Contragulations John, Simming with you the last few months leads me to believe that you are the right man for the job. I feel confident that you will do a GOOD job. :-) If I can be of help just let me know (and I will see if I can find someone who might be available). Wayne :mrhappy:
