Howdy from the Midwest!
« on: November 24, 2022, 06:34:56 PM »
I’m quite new here, so I’m not super proficient on the inner workings of this community. But I joined with the intent to learn more about the F-16, other planes, and aviation in general. I doubt that I’ll have the time or money to build a full simpit, although that doesn’t mean I can’t try!

I’d say my fascination in aviation began freshmen year of high school. It was sparked when I encountered Drewski and his A-10 videos. After that, I was a diehard warthog fan. That next summer, I began to look into other planes of all different varieties. But I eventually ran into the F-16.

Welcome here. There is tons of information here, although at time shard to find. Even after being here for years, I keep still finding new info hidden deep in the forum. I found most information in the postings (and pictures!) of how members built there won pit.

Don't worry about not building a full pit. There are enough members that have smaller partial pits which are just as much fun to build and operate.
