aka: Bruce Artwick, B. Artwick

Biography edit · view history

Bruce Artwick created the company subLOGIC while he was a student in University of Illinois at Champaign back in 1979. He created the first "Flight Simulator" for the then primitive Apple II and Radio Shack TRS-80. Originally it was a graphics demo, but it was well received that he added a real "flight model". Thus Flight Simulator is born.

In 1988, internal dissention between Bruce Artwick and acting mananger caused Bruce to resign and founded his own company, Bruce Artwick Organization (BAO). He also took with him a substantial number of subLOGIC employees. He then went on to create FS4 for Microsoft. BAO later also created scenery and aircraft designer for FS4.
