Fergus has been an aviation enthusiast since early childhood. He trained on fixed wing as a teenager but could never justify the cost to pursue a PPL(H). His day job provides the opportunity to do aerial photography work from helicopters which is a very enjoyable perk. He has been interested in flight simulation in general since Microsoft Flight Simulator 98. This is where he discovered Hovercontrol and was bitten by the helicopter bug. He later moved over to X-Plane 9. The advent of VR brought renewed interest and focus on the hobby and he became a very early adopter. He's been exclusively using VR in X-Plane through various methods and headsets since 2013 and adopted the forum name RiftFlyer. The development bug began when he worked on the community revamp of the freeware Hughes 500D. This was followed with an Avitab and GTN750 integration for the Rotorsim EC135 and more recently the Mobile Helipad plugin.
