From the C.E.O.



September was a rough month for our pilots domiciled in Florida.Four major hurricanes made landfall with some of our pilots getting hit with 3 hurricanes and others with 2 hurricanes.


In some cases, they had to evacuate their area and return later to find downed trees and flooding.Fortunately no one was hurt and no one lost their home.


In every case, they lost power and internet connections.Some still are not back on-line from Hurricane Ivan.


Iím thankful that God has kept them safe, and am sure that many of you had them all in your prayers.



Microsoft is releasing an FS 2004 update this month.Mainly it will place bridges at locations that have been missing them.†† It will also correct some stability problems.
