Hi Folks,

Last year, a few friends got together at my home in Las Cruces, NM to see my project and fly my 737-800 Sim.  It was a great deal of fun as a "2022 Sim Get-together".  We did it again this year with the same folks, which included Scott, Fred, Rob, Dean, and Roberto.  Nice group of guys, all building full-scale Sims.

I have made significant progress on my Sim, adding a full Aft Section to the Cockpit.  This now fully encloses the cockpit environment, adding to the existing Sim immersion.  Still more to do on my Sim Project, but it is nearing completion.

This year the same folks got together again for a "2023 Sim Get-together".  I had setup the cockpit with four (4) webcams, and recorded a montage of Take-offs and Landing over the two days flying together.  The video link is included here.

For next year's Sim Get-together, I would like to open it up for more folks to attend for those who might like to make the trip to my home in Las Cruces, NM to have some fun flying the Sim and having fellowship with other like-minded Sim Builders.  That would be the "2024 Sim Get-Together" to be held in March 2024.

On another note...   I just finished installing a new Sim Computer for use with P3D v5.3.  This new computer is an i9 13900KS 6GHz system, with all the fastest components available, including a RTX-4090 GPU.  This new computer is very fast!   As a single Sim Computer running my 737-800, I can report that speed, performance, and display quality is greatly improved.

Anyway...  The video montage is simple, using OBS Studios in its record mode.  Link below...   Enjoy!
