The Human Element – IndiaFoxtEcho Interview

In the second instalment of our new Human Element series, PC Pilot meets Dino Cattaneo, the mastermind behind military aircraft add-on company IndiaFoxtEcho. The Italian software developer, who also works as a mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry, released his first freeware add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator 98.

In the years since the freeware releases became more complex and in 2015, Cattaneo made the decision to transition to a payware model. In this interview, we find out how he became involved in aviation and what his flight simulation interests are, as well as his thoughts on developing add-ons for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Incidentally, one of IndiaFoxtEcho’s products, the T-45C Goshawk (co-produced with MilViz).
