I am a retired field service representative, having worked at AlliedSignal/ Honeywell, General Electric and Collins Aerospace for the better part of 42 years. I was stationed at Bombardier’s manufacturing plants, responsible for the various systems that were installed on the Challenger, Global Express and Canadair Regional Jet series. I also had Air Canada as a customer, supporting their fleet of in-service aircraft.
I have been using Microsoft’s flight simulators since version 5.0 and always enjoyed the progress and changes that came with each new release. Third-party developers (such as Aerosoft) were some of the big reasons I stayed with this hobby.
