Looks like the model that they are getting is the FMX-E . Gotta love new expensive toys, I just hope the whole wing will get to use this, not just one area.... only time will tell.

This is awesome news!

I just hope the whole wing will get to use this, not just one area.... only time will tell.

The sim will be housed at my old stomping grounds. I was the group commander when we designated that building as the NYWG Cadet Educational Center. I still know a lot of the people there.

All of this is to say -- they want this facility to be used. The wing commander wants it, the group commander wants it. There is a long history of bringing people from all across the state to Hancock for training. I'm sure they would love to have you.

I visit Central NY a couple times a year to see my family. Maybe I'll pack a uniform on my next trip up there... 8)

Super excited for this. Shame that I'm moving away from CNYG this summer.

That's good news for NY!


NYWG does indeed have some nice facilities at CNYG thanks to a very close, long-standing relationship with the NYANG. Bonus points because it is geographically located right around the centerpoint of the state.
