Michael Greenblatt from FS-GS passed away last night from a 4 month battle with cancer.

He devoted his every waking moment to helping others with their flight sim problems, and literally 1000's are in his debt for making their simmimg experiance what it is today.

Love him or hate him, he was a pillar of this community and will be sorely missed..

Go with the angels Mike, all flights wil be smooth now

This is a great loss for the Flight Sim Community.

I met Michael 2 years ago now. I was transitioning from another online community that had closed it's doors. Jay got me pointed in the right direction, and Michael 'fixed' my installation... What started as a gruff, introduction when he saw my desktop, turned into a friendship as I stopped fussing with his changes and just went with it. When we were finished setting up my computer, my world of FSX changed dramatically. A few upgrades later, and overclocking my new system 125% it was running rock solid. My FSX exerience was better than ever before.

I will miss the flights with Michael and the friendly banter between the group of us who flew almost every day. It has been about a year since the last time I was able to fly with the group, and it will seem that much more empty when I am able to get back to flying more regularly.

RIP Michael. Fair skys and smooth landings.

I met Michael back in 2002... We became very good friends once I cracked his shell. Spent many hours on the phone and it wasn't about the flight sim all the time. Have not spoke to him in a few years but my condolences go out to him and his family.... Fair skies Michael....
