Flight Simulation in New Brunswick
New Brunswick is a province in Eastern Canada bordered on the West by the State of Maine USA and on the North by the Province of Quebec, Canada. To our South is the Bay of Fundy which separates New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. To our East is the vast Atlantic Ocean.
Our population is in the order of 747 thousand, so you might think it would not be too hard to have an abundance of members in our [sign in to see URL]
group. Not necessarily so, because our FSNB group wad formed about 15 years ago and at this writing we have 36 members. This is one good reasons why we participate in public events when we are invited and have our own display booth at the local exhibition.
The FSX Bluebirds are a team of Flight Simulator pilots that are interested in flying in formation.
Obtaining and keeping pilots can be tough for this type of flying. Why? Simply because many think that they would not be able to do it while others begin and then decide its not for them.
Formation flight requires the utmost of concentration, work and determination. Of course, a certain amount flying skill is an absolute bonus.
One would think that formation flight in a flight simulator would be simpler than in real life. "Not so" says one pilot from the real world. "In fact, it is more difficult because of the lack of field of view, depth perception and the feel of the controls that cannot be reproduced accurately in "home" simulators".
We fly the lockheed T-33 Shooting Star aircraft which has been "painted" in our unique colors. We practice three nights a week - Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays for one hour each session. Our flight time is 1900 and our comms are on the Sim-Outhouse TeamSpeak3 server. A shout-out to Sim-Outhouse for letting us have space on the server to do that.
If you get a chance, we would love for you to visit us at
