Captain Sim Story
The story of Captain Sim dates back to the 1970's when four small boys, Alex,
Eugene, Andrey and Sergey, fell in love with the immense and infinite sky.
Their fathers were fighter pilots and the boys grew up on air bases watching
fighters flying and enjoying the "ballet of the skies".
In 1988, Alex, Eugene, Andrey and Sergey entered the Chernigov Higher Fighter Pilot School
and started flying jets themselves. In 1992, they received their Fighter Pilot Wings,
degrees in Aeronautics and continued their service in the Air Force, flying
fighters, jet airliners, cargo turboprops and different flight simulators.
One day in the mid 1990's, they installed a copy of Microsoft's Flight Simulator 95, and were
amazed by its features. However, they felt that the aircraft, the quality of the
panels and the realism were less impressive. "Let's make it better, - they
said, - we know how!" - that was the key to success.
Between 1998 and 2000 they released a series of freeware
projects including a Tupolev Tu-134 panel, as well as An-26 and L-39 aircraft and panels.
These models became very popular among simmers due to their high levels of accuracy and realism.
Captain Sim is Born
Inspired by an increasing number of fans, the pilots decided to turn their hobby into a real business.
It was evident that there was no better recipe for success than doing what they were really experts in.
The company was founded in December 1999, offering expansions for the Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Since its establishment, Captain Sim has developed quite a reputation for creating highly accurate versions
of passenger and combat aircraft for the flight simulation community.
