About Chuck's Guides

First of all, thanks for being here! If you love aviation, you are in the right place!

Who am I?
I am the creator of “Chuck’s Guides”, a free resource hosted on Mudspike that aims to teach you how to fly the coolest planes in the flight simulation world. Can’t figure out something about a specific aircraft in DCS, Prepar3d, FSX, X-Plane or Il-2? Look no further, I’m here to help!

What’s in it for you?
The “Chuck’s Guides” library has a page count over 8000 pages across all flight sim platforms. A lot of research and care goes into every single document, which can take hundreds of hours to make for a single pdf. I do this in my free time, which is quite limited since I also have a full-time job. Patrons will be able to brainstorm with me about new guides, or suggest what existing guides could be improved upon. My guides are constantly being updated and maintained, and I’m always open to new ideas. Patrons will also have early access to my early drafts and have some visibility over the guide creation process.

Why Patreon?
The flight sim hobby isn’t cheap since I buy every product I write on. This includes hardware, modules, software to create these guides… and of course the ridiculous amount of time I pour into these guides.

Where the money goes
I always wanted to build a golden statue of myself in my front yard (just kidding!). This money goes into the costs for software licences required to create these guides, hardware and of course the software modules themselves. Also… coffee is one hell of a drug.

Thank you for making a difference!
I have always done these guides to make the flight sim hobby become more accessible to newcomers and mavericks alike…but I am always amazed to see the selflessness of this tightly knit community. Thank you all for keeping the genre alive!
