The software guy in the team.
Passioned by aviation he originally considered to become a pilot, but he chose a different direction and graduated with a university degree in engineering.
Combining his passion for aviation and wanting to maintain his computer and software skills, he started programming the A320 Simulator software a number of years back. Originally fully stand alone, not intended to be linked with any cockpit hardware whatsoever. It grew from in the very beginning drawing a simple gauge to proof himself that it was feasible, to modeling in very high detail and realism a complete Airbus with all of its systems.
Meeting the two other guys on the team who were building a hardware cockpit was a revelation. All suddenly everything became much more realistic.
