Hi I am James and I am a flight simulation enthusiast. Flight simulation covers a broad range of specialisations and different categories of aircraft and I am interested in many of them but my standout favourite flight simulation activity will always be cross-country virtual gliding.
I have for a long time been a member of the UK Virtual Gliding Association (UKVGA). Anyone interested in virtual soaring with FSX should consider joining the UKVGA. They are a bunch of friendly and helpful virtual soaring enthusiasts. Their website and forum provide a rich source of information and resources to help you get started with this virtual sport.
The UKVGA conduct their operations along the lines of a typical real-world English gliding club. The club also organises two multiplayer on-line flights in FSX each week for their members. At these multiplayer events, members have a choice of one-on-one training or participation in cross-country tasks. The tasks feature a wide range of gliding locations around the world in realistic soaring weather situations using FSX and CumulusX! All of the cross-country tasks may be flown off-line if preferred – this is useful, if like me, you reside in an unsuitable time zone for attending the on-line events.
So checkout their home page – maybe this virtual sport is for you!
