Hello there folks and welcome at FlightDeckX.com, your newest growing ressource for news, reviews and basically any information related to the exciting world of X-Plane.
My name is Ollie and I am the host of this site. I am an enthusiastic X-Plane user as many of you are (and if you read this I am quite confident that you are). Whenever I find the time I take a plane through the air. When I don’t find the time I still regularly check my cellphone for the newest updates, rumours etc. You get the point… 😉
Lately I find myself more and more checking a rather long list of websites and forums just to keep myself up to date. I started to wonder why there are so few X-Plane dedicated news sites reporting on a daily basis. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of websites covering X-Plane, but they all seem to lack dedication since they usually focus more on those other sims we all know.
That’s when I got the idea to start a new site that covers all those topics I need to search for myself. I believe this might come handy for all those people out there that are as enthusiastic as me.
To make sure that Laminar Research (that’s the developer of X-Plane, in case anybody shouldn’t know) was fine with the way I planned this site to be (you know, logo, color schemes, copyright issues, those kind of things) I contacted Austin Meyer, who is basically the creator of this wonderful simulation platform called X-Plane 11. Austin replied only a few hours later with the words that got my motivation cookin’: “Yes, it is great to do X-Plane sites!”
Long story short, there we are now!
Have fun at FlightDeckX.com! All news. All X-Plane.
