When you think of aircraft simulator manufacturers, FLYTHISSIM may not come to mind. Yet, as often the case, it's always the upstart that changes the industry. Just ask Eric Paton, our guest on tonight's show and co-founder of FLYTHISSIM. Long known for SimAVIO, a high quality avionics software solution for flight simulators, Eric and his business partner, Carl Suttle, saw an opportunity to change the price/performance paradigm in the market, by bringing a FAA approved Basic Aviation Training Device to market for under $5,000. WOW!
As you listen to the show, you will find Eric is exactly like the rest of us. Passionate about aviation, and excited to be part of the community that is changing aviation by following his dream.
Marc and Al also talk about the passing of Paul Proberezny, Marc's flight in a B-17, and despite it's reputation, how cool the Beech Duke looks (no comments please). And of course, no SimpleFlight broadcast would be complete without Marc's Sunday Night Chuckle (#SNC).
So come on board and join us for our two hour flight to everywhere! Thanks for listening.
