Biography edit · view history

Andy Hollis is another true pioneer in entertainment software. As a founding member of MicroProse Software, he designed and programmed many of that company's top flight simulations, including Mig Alley, Kennedy Approach, Gunship, F-19 Stealth Fighter, F-15 Strike Eagle II and F-15 Strike Eagle III, as well as the science-fiction titles Lightspeed and Hyperspeed. His programming expertise covers multiple computer platforms. Andy joined ORIGIN in 1993 to launch a new line of military simulations. His first product, AH-64D Longbow, a premier helicopter flight sim, is being released under the Janes Combat Simulations Brand. The brand is a result of a licensing agreement between Electronic Arts, ORIGIN and Janes Information Group, the worlds leader in defense publications.
