YOU'RE AN AVID FLIGHT SIMMER IF:

You get on a commercial airliner and ask the crew where the joysticks are.

You buy airline tickets for a transcontinental flight and expect to be home by bedtime.

You ask an airline whether it uses FS2004 or X-Plane.

You ask a fixed base operator what sceneries it has.

You're on your way to the Caribbean while your family thinks you're defragging the computer.

You go to the emergency room to have the joystick removed from your fingers.

You ask air traffic control where to download their scripts.

You ask the fixed base operator if it has a book containing all the navaids around the world.

You use a GPS device to find your way around Chicago O'Hare's passenger terminal.

You ask the fixed base operator if it has a book containing all the instrument approach plates for North America and Europe.

You ask an airplane dealer where to download custom instrument panels.

You tell a certified flight instructor that you could fly his airplane if it had a keyboard.
You offer an airline pilot your favorite engine-sound *.wav.

You ask American Airlines to remove their logos from their airplanes.

You ask a CFI how to get a screen shot.

You ask an airline if it's FS98 compatible.

You ask a travel agent if you can get flight-sim add-ons with your frequent flyer points.

You ask a CFI how to get an exterior view.

You think real airlines are modeled on virtual airlines.

You ask a flight attendant how to change the views out your window.

You tell the airline to increase their frame-refresh rate when they're behind schedule.

You've ever caught yourself in the shower humming the theam music from IL-2.

Every few minutes the wife/girlfriend yells down the hall "Baby, Who is Oleg and why do you cuss him every few minutes?"

You use the chip in your car windshield as a pipper.

Your head snaps around every time a co-worker walks up behing you.

You prefer cars with moonroofs and Targa tops for better vis.

You have trained your kids to reference cops as bandits using "o'clock" terminology (e.g. "Dad! Bandit, right 1 o'clock long!")


You speak in acronyms: YMB an AFS if YCRT (You Might Be an Avid Flight Simmer if You Can Read This).

Nice.

We once had a community made topic which read similar. I think it was about folks confessing what they do. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
