FSExpo Reports Record Numbers for 2023 Event
Just this past weekend, more than 1,900 flight simmers, exhibitors, and pilots descended on hot and humid Houston, Texas for Flight Sim Expo 2023! Attendees hailed from 30 countries and 5 continents, with over 70 exhibitors being present for a hands-on experience showcasing home flight simulation and many aspects of real world aviation!
The event took off on Friday, June 23 with a series of product announcements that included announcements of upcoming hardware from Thrustmaster, the new Ford 4-AT Trimotor from Microsoft Flight Simulator, a multitude of new hardware products including the new Delta Flight Displays from Honeycomb, and a further update on what will be included with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024! A few developers made their announcements via video reveal, including A2A Simulations with their upcoming Comanche 250, and the A300-600 by iniBuilds.
On Saturday and Sunday, attendees had the chance to explore the exhibit hall and try the latest and greatest in flight simulation technology, including virtual reality devices, yokes, joysticks, and even GPS replicas. Along with many flight simulation developers being at the Expo, many content creators were there, with Jeff Faviagno, Chewwy94, Cpt. Canada, Swiss001, BluGames, and XP72 were all present.
During all this, seminars were held and featured a variety of community based content. Highlights include a panel about the business of flight simulation, a panel on content creation, a home cockpit building workshop, and several ‘getting started’ seminars to help newcomers find their wings
