Greetings from the Philippines!

I have been playing YSFlight since 2005 and it is still a favorite of mine even after all these years. I'm also a self-proclaimed planespotter and I snap pictures of actual planes at every opportunity. Hoping to become a licensed pilot someday, but for now, YSFlight is the next best thing. :)

I eagerly look forward to what this community as a whole still has to offer, not the least of which are the addons. :D My sincerest thanks to all to those who went to great lengths to make accurate models and paints of the planes of Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, AirPhilippines (now PAL Express), and our very own air force.

Cheers! :)

Welcome to the forums, Tongderbolt! It's nice to have greetings from one of my own multiple nationalities. I hope you enjoy YSFlight Simulator & being a member of the YSFlight HeadQuarters Community. Happy flying :)

P.S. Sometimes we have big virtual events here, and somewhere in the summer is VNAF AirFest which is one awesome YS virtual airshow that happens each year. If you're interested, see if you can join or spectate once the dates are out! ;)

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm more into offline flying, partly because of internet issues (i.e. slowest internet in all of Southeast Asia and all that). :lol: I will, however, engage in some of the discussions (as appropriate). :)

Greetings! Welcome to YSFHQ. Seeing as you are from the Philippines, have you flown on the Philippines map? Not a complete map of the Philippines, but it's something!

Are you more interested in Civilian or Military flying? There's a pretty good selection of both available for YSFlight and you can find links to many of them at http://www.ysfinder.net.

Thanks for the welcome! I've read about that map. Perhaps I'll give it a go one of these days. :)

Indeed, I have gotten a lot of my addons with the help of YSFinder. I'm more into virtual military flying (I hope I won't get in trouble here for saying I'm also into the Strike Fighters series of games for Android. :? ), but I also try virtual commercial flying every once in a while for a change of pace. :lol:

Salamat, kabayan! :D I've seen posts by other Pinoys here, many of whom (yourself included) are friendly and welcoming towards everyone else, and for that, I thank you. :)

By the way, if you guys are interested, I have an Instagram account (@tongderbolt) wherein I've recently begun posting my screenshots of Philippine commercial planes (You can also find photos of actual planes, old churches, food, beer, coffee, and my Nerf guns among other things there.). I've done some research as to who the original modders are, but I might have missed a few (or a LOT), and my mother always taught me to give credit where credit is due. :lol:

You are free to follow me, and if the people I credited for the mods are not actually the ones who made those, please feel free to point out who the deserving individuals are and I will gladly make the necessary corrections in my captions and tags. :)

Thanks and clear skies ahead! :D

I started out flying on dialup, so feel free to try online. The worst that can happen is lag. ;)
