Hi! I’m Trevor, I run a Flight Simulation YouTube Channel and Company helping people build the cockpits of their dreams.
I’ve always had a fascination for aircraft. I don’t know what it is about them, but my eyes have always pivoted towards the sky at the roar of a jet or the hum of a Cessna.
I later tried to do everything I could to get into the cockpit of an airplane. I researched airplanes for hours, looking at how much it would cost to become a pilot. I read aviation magazines and even finished the FAR/AIM Aviation Law Manual cover to cover as a middle schooler (would not recommend).
My continued love for aviation launched me on the path to flight simulators. I’ve felt like a mechanically-inclined person from a pretty young age, loving to build mini projects that soak up my attention.
Later, on my epic adventure to becoming an airline pilot, I found I didn’t meet the colorblindness standards for night flight. Though I can still be a pilot, commercial opportunities would be limited.
This devastating news came at the perfect time. I found my true love of aviation stemmed from engineering. I love finding out how airplanes fly, and how the systems around aircraft are cleverly created.
I started really getting into flight simulation. I built many projects and put them up on my YouTube channel for people to see. I also started making tutorials. I love showing people how to wire things to MobiFlight because it lets me know they are getting into this wonderful hobby too!
Now I’m making the Cessna 172 Project. I decided to take my engineering skills to the next level, challenging my abilities with difficult problems.
Where did this name come from?
Captain Bob was originally used because my parents and I didn’t want to share my name online. Later we decided it’d be okay to share. I like the name Captain Bob, so it stuck with me 🙂
- December 2017 I got Microsoft Flight Simulator and the TX Hostas Joystick (The $50 one with a stick and throttle)
- June 2017, I got Gleim’s Private Pilot Kit, and have been studying to be a pilot.
- December 2017 I got my first set of Rudder Pedals, the Logitech Pro Pedals.
- June 2018, I got my CH Products Yoke
- 2021 Downloaded FS2020 and flew around chasing cars on the highway.
- September 2021 I spoke at Flight Sim Expo in San Diego California
- The story has built from there, and now I’ve learned how to build, design, edit, and make homecockpits.
