Buster's Introduction

Post by Buster » Tue Dec 19, 2017 6:03 am

Hello everyone!

My name is Nick, but I also go by my callsign Buster. Im 16 and I've been intrested in the aviation field for quite awhile, growing up around airshows and hearing stories from my great grandfather when he flew in a B-26 (favorite aircraft) during WW2. I solidified my intrests and got my motivation from a tour flight in which I got to take the controls for a hot minute, flying through the air with complete control on where I could go. The experience modivated me to want to go into a feild I'd had my eye on for awhile, and fly the planes as a career. With my pursuit in aviation I decided to attend Rancho High School's Aviation Program for Private Pilot. I am currently a student there and am persuing to get my private pilot license within the next 2 years. I am also enrolled in Rancho's AFJROTC, where I've gained my extream intrest in going military after college (hopefully that works out). Its my dream to fly for a commercial airliner, but I wouldn't mind getting to fly a fighter jet inbetween. Outside of school, I take pride in saying that I am a month away from achieving the rank of Eagle in Boy Scouting and enjoy sharing those experiences with others.

I came to YSFlight from experimenting on school computers with a few friends and upon enjoying it, took it home and have been using it for practice. I enjoy flying with my freinds and seeing all the great things people can make for the program (there's is ome CRAZY stuff). I discovered YSFHQ awhile ago but only just decided to join the community.

I look forward to meeting all you wonderful aviation enthusiasts (at least thats what I've heard) and hopefully getting to share some of the fun here. Thank you in advance!

More about me:
-I'm a student in an IB school (get up early, most of the time at 5:00-5:10am, commuting everyday, 1h10m from my house to school). The commuting is almost end now I think.
-My future goal in 2 years time is to be enrolled into EasyJet generation pilot training. Wish me luck ;) Later on, I want to fly the Emirates A380 after 2-3 years flying the A320 :D

By any chance if you have Instagram, please drop a follow on @rv_aviation02 . Appreciate that!

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

Don't double post, don't type in all caps, don't upload addons made by other people, don't request anything for a few weeks, don't release modifications to other people's addons without citing your sources, and when on a server stop shooting anything that drops three flairs and don't shoot anything on the ground or anything that isn't carrying weapons.

These are rules that all new members should know but won't know until they break one of them.

It's great place, all the cool kids hang out here.

Quick who's who around here:

I'm a coding wizard, I do heaps of stuff for YS Netcode in particular. Eric runs the site and Welshy is a bit experienced too and help out from time to time. Wingzfan runs the finances.

Doomsday, Iceman, Bombcat, Vic Viper are all verterans of the combat side.

Owl, Neocon, Dan and Dave are some of the civial aviation nuts.

Kujo, Scarecrow, VNAF ONE are some of the big names in Aerobatics.

You'll meet more folks as you get online some. We're just waiting on summer break to swing by then activity usually sky rockets for a short time.

I'm trying to code a new server to help that along by giving intangible rewards to players on servers. I'm all about that Sense of Pride and Accomplishment (tm).
