About Airforceproud95

There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes of air travel that passengers don’t see while squeezed in a seat, snacking on a tiny bag of almonds. Well, thanks to Flight Simulator X player extraordinaire Airforceproud95, YouTubers can experience the flip side of the flying experience, like communications between pilots and air traffic controllers or landing as seen from inside the cockpit. While he may simulate flying underneath the Golden Gate Bridge for his 480K+ subscribers, the certified commercial pilot also vlogs aboard real flights he’s guiding. His professional status comes in handy when he trolls inexperienced FSXplayers who make rookie mistakes, but his enthusiasm for flying helped him to gain more than 330K new fans in 2017.
