RIP Tom Allensworth

TomAllensworth_BannerFollowing the recent announcement that he was terminally ill, we are sad to have to pass on the news that Avsim founder Tom Allensworth passed away this morning.

One of the longest serving members of the flight sim community, active on message and bulletin boards before many people even knew the internet existed, Tom has been known, personally or through his work, to many of us over the years and his loss will be felt throughout the FS world. The staff at simFlight would like to add our thoughts and condolences to Tom’s family and friends.

A sad loss to the flight sim community. We’ll not see his like again. Thanks for all you did Tom. I for one will always appreciate what you gave us.

I have been on and off the AVSIM forum for more than 15 years. There is no denying Tom Allensworth was a defining figure of the flightsim world.
Blue Skies and Fair Winds forever. May he rest in peace.
