The voice of experience (yeah, right).
The Three Grumpy Simmers is a group of three (who knew?) flight simulation enthusiasts with a combined experience of over 75 years in the flight simulation community. That's a long time in any industry and it's a very long time in a tech industry such as the one supporting flight simulation.
Did that time made these folks wiser? It sure didn't, otherwise they would be using their time in better ways than to waste your bandwidth. But it got them the experience and the tools to give back to the community after the community has given them so much for so long (unfortunately, they are not giving anything of worth but hey! Kudos for trying, old men).
Tristan "Novawing24" Ayton is a highly opinionated YouTube content creator with a focus on the Simulation genre. Believing that giving back to the community is important, he provides open and honest commentary and feedback on developments in the simulation genre. He has also tried his hand at texture design, with content available at his website and at the AVSIM Library, as well as writing for numerous websites. When not simming he can be found training or competing in Obstacle Course Racing or Triathlon events around the world.
Sérgio has been a flight simulation enthusiast for over 25 years. His passion with helicopters developed during MSFS 2000 when he discovered the complexity of these aircraft and the challenge it was to control them. Since then he has been primarily a helicopter flight simmer, trying his best not to crash and kill all his virtual passengers. Sérgio is HeliSimmer.com's editor and writer.
Drew "Bel Geode" Bolton has been a flight simulation enthusiast since 1986, and has been an active member of the community since 2005. A former virtual airline CEO, Bel has embraced many aspects of flight simulation, and understands how to connect with the community at large, through his YouTube channel, and various collaborations with fellow simmers. Bel Geode can be found often in FSX/P3D in his F-14 Tomcat "Valkyrie", in X-Plane in one of his many helicopters, or in DCS World in anything he can get his hands on, to make targets go "Boomflowah"!
Our stuff in pretty pictures. With movement.
As if it wasn't hard enough to just listen to us...
The way to listen to all the nonsense we say, without looking at our ugly mugs.
