About Eaglesoft Development Group!

18 years of Flight Simulation for the 21st Century!

In the beginng: [Generation One Legacy Products]
Eaglesoft Development Group genesis was late 2000 and early 2001/2002. Our efforts began as, and was the result of a lifelong love for all things aviation. While pursuing an SEL/PPL, a chance introduction to Microsoft FS98, flown from the keyboard no less, led to the FS2000 simulation platform and a CH Yoke/Pedals combination. The desire for online flying via Squawkbox and Vatsim quickly culminated in approaching a few likeminded and talented friends who wished to build and fly Corporate Aviation and General Aviation Aircraft for the then new and upcoming FS2002 Simulator Platform. Eaglesoft founding members include owner Ronald Hamilton, Bob Hayes, Lonny Payne, and Bill Leaming. Our efforts led to an affiliation with Flight One Software to handle licensing and ecommerce and Eaglesoft Development Group was launched!

The local FBO housed a company owned Corporate Aircraft built by Raytheon named Beechjet 400A. Local pilots granting access to that aircraft and Lonny Payne's real world pilot experience flying the same type led to Eaglesoft Development Group building and releasing its first simulated Raytheon Beechjet 400A along with a (free with purchase) Raytheon Premier1 for the Microsoft FS2002 Simulator Platform in the Fall of 2002.
The initial success of that project has encouraged us to continue in developing an [Legacy] FS2004 Generation One Catalog of simulated Corporate Aviation and General Aviation aircraft and affiliating with others of like mind and talent throughout the US and the world.

The growing years: [Generation Two FSX Boxed]
The Fall of 2006 led to an invitation to Seattle, WA by now defunct Microsoft Aces Studio Management to be involved in beta testing their newest product named FSX which led to a Catalog of products designated Generation Two. We were asked to produce for testing, our first FSX product which turned out to be the venerable Raytheon Beechjet 400A now renamed to Raytheon Hawker 400XP. That trip also provided an opportunity to provide 12 of our Cirrus SR20 aircraft w/Avidyne Entegra Avionics to the Seattle Museum of Flight and Aviation Learning Center for Youth!

What’s Next: [Generation Two Dual Platform and Multi Platform Installers]
2014/2015 brought a number of changes to the simulated flight community with the advent of Lockheed Martin P3DV3 and FSX Steam Edition which compliments the existing FSX Boxed 32 Bit Platform and represents a fresh look at possibilities moving forward. In 2015/2016 Eaglesoft has begun the process of shuffling older and newer projects and personnel with an eye towards an overall improvement in products, projects, and personnel. We introduced an improved Generation Two Catalog of products which include a new series of Dual Platform and Multi Platform Installers with the ability to install to FSX Boxed, FSX Steam, and P3DV3, 32 Bit Platforms at one price point.

Near future and beyond: [Generation Three Extreme Multi Platform Installers]
2015/2016 brought major improvements to our modeling Staff and our affiliation with Avionics Suite developers to provide a Generation Three Catalog of products which include a series of Multi Platform Installers with the ability to install to FSX Boxed, FSX Steam, and P3DV3, 32 Bit Platforms at one price point. A Sneak Peek at our Generation Three Projects currently in development may be seen right here and on our Facebook Page.

Near future and beyond: [Generation Four Extreme Single Platform Installers]
Late 2017 brought yet another set of changes to the simulated flight community with the advent of a 64 Bit Simulation Platform called Lockheed Martin P3DV4. An eye to the future leads us to a logical path toward developing a Generation Four Catalog of select Extreme Corporate and/or Extreme General Aviation aircraft for the Lockheed Martin P3DV4 64 Bit Simulation Platform as schedules allow. We are confident and excited for the future of simulated flight and our contribution to its success. As can be seen we now have a presence on social media w/Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube and look forward to maximizing the enjoyment of simulated flight for all participants.
Best Regards,
Ronald Hamilton ASEL
