Having kicked AH2 around a couple of days, I really think that the developer is on to something here. Like so many things, my initial reaction to the features list was short sighted. Why would a pilot give a rat’s arse what’s happening in the ivory tower or on Wall Street? But, when you think of it more as a business simulator, of which your focus is managing the more interesting parts while keeping your flying job, you become easily engaged. At least I did.
A few years ago I was mulling over the viability a small commuter airline in the SE that operated between SEC and ACC college towns. Aircraft and gate staff could be attired in school colors, etc. You get my drift. I can see the UGA pax not wanting to get on a Gator aircraft, but I digress. Now I can sort of see how that plays out.
And this morning, my wife walked in my office, catching me with mug in hand checking to see if my lone employee/pilot relocated the Skylane overnight. Could have been worse. She’s an MBA type at Coke and looking over my shoulder, suddenly gained a whole new interest in my “gaming” hobby. Instant validation.
