Time for some updates I think!
Having just read through the last (and only) post I made back when I set the site up I realise now that my optimism was not unlike that of a company bidding for a government IT contract. In other words its taken twice as long and a fair bit more than we thought it was going to do.
That said the our budgeting wasn’t that far out and the extra time was due to the purchase of better quality components, which once you have seen the simulator I am sure you will agree was money well spent! The extra build time was down mainly to waiting for others to deliver on time and the sheer complexity of getting part A from company Z to fit with part B from company W.
Anyhow that is all behind us now; the sim is up and running, although we are waiting for some modified parts to arrive from company ‘SJ’ these aren’t important and don’t affect how the sim works it will require about 8 hours of downtime to fit them.
The plan is now to Tidy up our office (honest Michelle!) buy some furniture for our guests (and us come to think of it) and start test flying and make any small tweaks that might be needed.
We are also working on our social media presence too so you will be able to find us on Facebook and Twitter for now and maybe more if time permits. we also have a Youtube channel that needs some better videos posting.
