Robert is creating Aviation Adventures, Sim Tutorials

Hello! My name is Robert Sogomonian and I'm a private pilot who transitioned from twenty years of armchair piloting in early 2016.

My content creation endeavors started a few years earlier in 2013 with a very well received tutorial series for the Su25T Frogfoot, a free aircraft available with the DCS World flight simulator. I produced ten detailed tutorials covering all aspects of employing the aircraft.

In August of 2015 I started my flight training and by May of 2016 I was officially a certificated private pilot! I filmed my training with a GoPro as a way to debrief and analyze my progress to better understand where I could improve. The videos were incredibly useful to me and I decided to start a vlog for the benefit other pilots as well.

By pledging to this campaign you are directly supporting the creation of informative, entertaining videos geared towards private pilots, armchair pilots, and aviation enthusiasts alike with the purpose of improving skills and understanding of various aviation concepts utilizing all of the tools and information at my disposal.

In aviation, this is referred to as single-pilot resource management.
On YouTube, this is referred to as content production. 😉

The flight simulator tutorials are instructional in nature within the context of a simulator, but the aviation adventures are meant to be relatable videos that show real world flights made by an average private pilot. From time to time I will reference the differences that I notice between real world aviation and flying a simulator.

It's very rewarding to be able to share how a real world interest in aviation and pursuing that interest through video games turned into something directly applicable to the real world.

Your patronage confirms to me that the effort I put into this content creates value and at the same time challenges me to improve my creative skill to produce the best aviation videos I can.

The amount pledged isn't that important to me,
which is why I don't show the total amount of contributions on this page.
What is important to me
is that you find the content valuable enough to want to contribute in the first place.

The simulator tutorials have evolved from simple off-the-top-of-my-head instructional narration and now take a few days of research and practice to make sure all of the information I am presenting is accurate and correct. Then throw in a day of filming and frequent re-shoots because things often aren't perfect on the first take and another day of editing it all together.

Vlogging takes a similar amount of time for flight planning, coming up with an interesting, entertaining, and informative narrative, filming the actual material, and then often a few days to edit the video from multiple action cameras together into a self contained episode.

I put a lot of research, care, and attention to detail into creating content that I think is entertaining and will inspire fellow aviation enthusiasts to maybe take that step they've been meaning to for years. Often times even someone who isn't necessarily interested in something can become interested if they see something that draws them into it. Bringing more people into general aviation can't be a bad thing and that's where the value of all of this exists for me.

Become a patron today to show your support for my content and challenge me to continue to create compelling, engaging, and informative aviation adventures and flight simulator tutorials.

Thank you so very much for your support!

One aviation adventure and one simulator tutorial every month (on a bi-weekly schedule). The pledged amount would be put towards aircraft rental and the time it takes to create high production video content.
