The Simwings Community Support Project

Flight Simmers Supporting Flight Simmers – All Around The Globe

Our Mission Statement: To encourage and enable aspiring flight simmers, both young & old, to participate fully in flight simulation and within our community, even when constrained by their current financial situation, and so make it possible for the less privileged in our community to take to the virtual skies in their own simulator.

We hope this will also enable them to take a more active role in our community, where we often see them only on the side lines, and hopefully even going on to create their own online content.

Here at Simwings we invite you to help make this possible.

For more details on exactly what we are trying to achieve and why, see the Info, Team and Q&A pages.

Current news and status

Please meet our very 1st successful Simwings applicant…

Allow me to introduce Kevaugn Peterkin and his mother… Known within the flightsim community as ‘Capt K.Peterkin’, he lives on the beautiful island of Jamaica and, although only 16 years old, he has been a very active and highly regarded member of our community for a considerable time. His main interest within flight simulation is X-Plane and its associated online community. Capt K was, up until now, unable to take to the virtual skies himself due to the lack of a PC, and the family being without adequate means to provide one.

Capt K is extremely knowledgeable about aviation – both real world and simulated.  He is enormously helpful to others in various flightsim chat rooms; always polite, and can almost always be found among the chat rooms of many and varied X-Plane Youtube channels.  So much so, that many content creators have enlisted his help as a moderator, both in their live chat rooms and also their Discord Servers, where he shows great maturity and always leads by example.

We at The Simwings Project are not only thrilled and delight for Kevaugn, but also consider ourselves fortunate and privileged to know this delightful young man.

Testimonial for Capt K.Peterkin from ‘XP1972’ (Youtube X-Plane 11 Streamer)

Captain.K Peterkin has been a very enthusiastic supporter and participant in the Aviation Simulations community. He’s been so out front in his appearance and participation in many online Flight Simmers  streams that he has earned a spot as a moderator on not only my stream and Discord channel but also many others. He was highly recommended to become a mod for me from other moderators of my streams and that says a lot about his personality and dedication to this hobby. All this was done at the age of 16 years old. That’s impressive. He is more than deserving of the first Simwings award and will do well in the real world aviation community if he so choose. Congratulations

The financial goal for this project, being a full PC system, flight simulation software and associated hardware controllers, is expected to be approximately $2,000 USD

We are delighted to announce the total amount raised to date (1st May 2020) is around $2,015(USD) and enough to launch Kevaugn into our virtual skies with his first ever PC based flight simulator. Every single dollar of this has been donated by individual members of the flightsim community.

The Simwings Community Support Project Salutes every single one of you as we are now in the process of arranging the build and shipment of this PC

Reaching this target doet not mean we cease accepting contributions. Quite the oposite – It’s time to start thinking about our next project.

UPDATE:  

As at 1st July 2020, Jamaican Customs have FINALLY reopened their borders and port operations after the COVID19 outbreak. Simwings have now purchased the system which is being built to specification.
