My name is Raymond and I've been a fan of flightsims for almost as long as I can remember. I started on my brothers Commodore 64 with Sublogic Flight Simulator and worked my way through many succeeding flightsims including FS4, FSX and X-Plane. When I got my Oculus Rift the only thing I wanted to try was a flightsim so I ended up playing DCS and War Thunder for a while, it was fun for a while, but I'm actually more a fan of a commercial aircraft. So I tried P3D in VR, well that was quite a let down, it didn't give me the feeling like I was there for a second.
Then one night I was bored and saw Aerofly FS 2, I wasn't really expecting anything but it had native VR support and the graphics looked quite good. So I bought it and fired it up, chose the Cessna as that is the only aircraft I have real-life experience with and put it on the platform of some small airstrip. Navigating the menus was so easy in VR compared to the other sims, it only took me about a minute to figure everything out.
So when the sim loaded up (so much faster than expected) I couldn't believe my eyes, I was really in a C172, it felt as tiny as the real thing and the instruments looked gorgeous. Impatiently I started to configure my yoke, throttle and pedals and within minutes I was ready to taxi away. It all felt so real and when I took of it was the first time a flightsim made me feel like I was really flying. I spent the whole night trying out all the aircraft and visiting many airfields and I went from one amazement into the other, everything is so well made and detailed.
Right now Aerofly is the only flightsim I play besides X-Plane 11. The only reason I play the latter is because of its superb night lighting. I might switch back now and then when they release their VR implementation as it looks quite good, but I think the long loading times may put me off frequently.
Anyway, that's not why I started this post. I am a professional software developer and in my spare time I have created a web application development system. I've been working on it for the last couple of years and now it's ready, so I thought it was time to give it a spin and try to make a full functioning public website with it. Now Aerofly FS 2 is great and all, but I think it misses a lot of exposure. Too many people might think like me at first, not really expecting anything of it and thus not buying it. So I made an Aerofly fan site that fully displays the awesome graphics, helps people track the latest news and updates and find the best add-ons and tools.
