Flight Simmers Supporting Flight Simmers – All Around The Globe
What do we do and why?
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.
How can I get involved?
We hold regular group flights to raise funds. These are always well planned, fun to fly and free to enter....

A Message From Dougal McTavish (founder of the Simwings Project)
After a great deal of soul searching, it is with much sadness and regret that I must announce my stepping down as founder and active member of the Simwings Project.
This is purely for personal and medical reasons. Most already know and it is no secret that I have had to commence a second round of aggressive treatment for cancer.
This simply does not leave me well enough to continue the work with Simwings. Nor would it be responsible to attempt to continue. There is a truly great and competent team behind The Simwings Project and I look forward to watching their future progress. I will also take this opportunity to express my deep and sincere thanks to everyone for supporting the project and helping me and the team to bring what was a dream, to full fruition.
Please continue to show your amazing support for the Project.
The whole team support Dougal in his decision and wish him a swift recovery.
Congratulations to LibyanPilot01 our latest successful candidate!
The Simwings Team is delighted to announce we have chosen the THIRD recipient of the Project. Zakaria Hammouda, known within the flightsim community as ‘LibyanPilot01’ is a youth YouTube content creator within our community. He has a passion for aviation through flight sim and is hopeful to have a career in aviation when the time comes. His aspirations to become a pilot for his home country, along with his love for flight sim leads us to believe he is a deserving applicant to be our next recipient. He has been struggling very hard to run a simulator on his current elderly PC and owns up to it being a very frustrating experience. We expect many can identify with this. We hope this PC creates a whole new experience for Zakaria and only strengthens his love for aviation. Be on the lookout for great things from this young man in the flight sim community as well as real world.
Looking forward to seeing you in the virtual skies, Captain.
