Hello Again Gentlemen !

It's been a while since I've done a flight, but this evening I accomplished a short flight in the Maritimes. Great to be back. :)

I am planning to take a trip to Ontario next week and I am wondering if any of you might remember a post that someone put on here a few years ago about a "flight simulator" in Toronto , where someone from the general public could try their hand at the controls. I'm not sure which one of our members it was who had something to do with this place, but he posted a link on the CVA forums here, and it did catch my intrests. Perhaps during my visit to the Toronto area, I would like to make a stop at a place like the one that was described on that site.

Does anyone remember ??

Thanks
Marty 8)

Good to hear from you Marty!
I seem to recall something about a simulator quite awhile back one of the members here was involved in somehow or something but I can't find a thread about it now. Oh well there's always Google I guess :)
Sure would be nice to read one of those multi reports you use to submit again though. :lol:

Hey Marty great to see you again. The guy with the sim is connected with Bill Van Caulart.

Yeah, good to see you, Marty.
Bill was the guy indeed. He still posts here once in a long while. You can probably find his coordinates here.

cheers
Rob

Ahh !! Bill Van Caulart ! Yes indeed ! :)

Many Thanks. I'll try to contact him to see if I can get some info on that site again. I tried to google it earlier , but could not find anything on it.

=====================================================================================================
Thanks for the warm welcome :)
I would like to get back into flying as much as I used to , but my life has been taking some changes lately with family matters and my job. I still work full time and I have not taken a vacation in about 4 years. I'm taking one next week (whether the boss likes it or not ,,, :wink: ). Also, I still play in a band and we have been busy on most Saturday nights , so that explains where I've been during the Saturday night multi's. (I really have to be there because I'm the leader of the band)

I gotta try to fly more often though, but due to my busy work schedule I just can't seem to correspond my flying time with the multi flight times, but things might change one of these days (hopefully) and I may be able to get busy on here again. I do kinda miss creating the multiflights like I used to, and I am so grateful for the great job that Darryl has been taking on ever since, as it can be rather "time consuming".

Glad you guys are keeping things alive here at CVA . Great job everyone ! 8)

Hi Marty,

here is a link to a 737 simulator co-located with Threshold aviation in Mississauga.
maybe this is the one you were thinking of?
