FlightSimExpo 2019 Dates and Location Announced

D541b564 Z


After the success of the first community driven event, the FSExpo team confirmed that the 2019 event planning had begun. With over 1100 people taking part in the event earlier last month, and selling out a large Las Vegas ballroom, it was looking likely the team were prepared to take it to the next level. Today, we can announce, along with FSExpo and other media partners, that FSExpo 2019 will be held on June 7-9 2019 at the Renaissance Orlando.

“We are proud to have based our location on input from developers, exhibitors, attendees, and the flight simulation community,” says Phil Coyle. “In a recent Twitter poll, Orlando was voted the best location for 2019, consistent with feedback we’ve received from those who joined us in Las Vegas in 2018.”

Orlando is known for its family friendly activities and huge range of things to do. From the theme parks, markets and fun fairs. Furthermore, those travelling can take full advantage of the large international airports that are both nearby and within a few hours drive.

FSExpo at Las Vegas in 2018

Although no developers or publishers have yet to officially confirm, we are pleased to announce that FSElite will be representing the community as a Media Partner yet again. We have listened to your feedback regarding our coverage from the previous event and have already started the process of ensuring we deliver the best experience to everyone.

At last year’s sell out event, FSExpo was supported by big names including Orbx, 1C Game Studios, FlyJSim, PILOT’S, REX Simulations, X-Plane, Aerosoft, Infinite Flight, NATCA, Navigraph, PilotEdge, ProSim, simFlight/simMarket. We’re hoping that many of these names appear at the event next year.

“When I was on site a few weeks ago, it was clear the venue is a great fit for FlightSimExpo,” says Evan Reiter, one of the conference’s co-founders. “Food is made from scratch in-house, the ballrooms are beautiful, there is a pool, arcade, and outdoor game spaces…really, it’s going to make for a fantastic event!”

It’s also been confirmed that registration will begin in December 2018 and weekend tickets will start at the low price of $50.

Keep an eye on the official FlightSimExpo Facebook feed to continue to watch video footage from the event last year.

PMDG 747-8 Screenshot NDA Lifted

Pmdg 747 8

The PMDG 747-8 has been on the radar for a very long time now. With lots of teasing throughout the development cycle, as well as new technology being shown off, it appears we are now in the final stretch in the run-up to release. On a private Facebook group, it has been confirmed by a PMDG beta tester that the NDA for screenshots has now been lifted. This means in the coming days, you can expect a flurry of imagery to flood social media, forums and the like showcasing the new aircraft. We took 2 from beta tester Evangelos. You can find the rest of his collection in the Facebook post.

If you’re unable to join that Facebook group, you’ll be pleased to know that over on the official PMDG forums, a singular shot of the aircraft in the twilight has been posted (header image above). Forum member ‘lasnubes’ said that “there will be lots more to follow, but this ought to get things rolling nicely for the moment..”

Taken by beta tester Evangelos.

Whilst we won’t post every new shot we can find, we’ll update this post every now and then. Either way, now you know you can soon expect some new shots of the upcoming PMDG 747-8.

Thanks to those that tipped us off about this.
