Turns 15 Today Dear air traffic simulator community,
Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the publication of ATCsimulator®.
I want to thank the aviation community, and the 75,000 or so customers
for your support in the past 15 years. I especially wish to thank AVSIM
for their support in keeping ATCsimulator® alive in the minds and
hearts of those seeking a career in air traffic control. I am looking
forward to an even brighter future with many new challenges and new
ideas in air traffic simulation in pursuit of the career and hobby that
we all love.
I never dreamed that ATCsimulator® would have achieved such success
in the past 15 years; you have made my dreams come true. I thank you
from the bottom of my heart, sincerely, Russell B. Davis/aerostudios.
To create the most realistic simulation products using current software
technology. Todays user is intelligent, sophisticated and expects the
ultimate in realism, as close as can be achieved. We do not believe
in selling a "game" version of our product as a "watered-down"
edition of a so-called "professional" version. Our products
will maintain the highest quality, and will replicate the real-world,
maintaining a balance between hardware constraints, and value-added
playability. We believe in simulating the real-world as it is, because
we believe the user is hungry for, and entitled to, the truth. But,
this is after all, a game meant for the purpose of entertainment and
is in no way intended to replace professional ATC training.
