Navigraph FlightSim Community 2020 Survey Results Now Available

The results from the Navigraph FlightSim Community 2020 Survey has been released. The survey took place late last year and saw over 23,500 people respond to the survey answering a range of questions to help developers, publishers, media outlets and content creators better understand the community to continue creating great flight simulator related content. The results of that survey has been presented by Magnus from Navigraph and the data is available to read through the 121-page report.

In total, 119 questions were asked making it the most comprehensive survey of its kind. With the release of major updates and simulation platforms, 2020 was an interesting year for flight simulation. The survey also contained questions influenced by the world-wide pandemic and how COVID-19 was impacting people’s simulator habits and spending.

Navigraph has complied all of the data for the community to also understand the results of the survey. Let’s take a look at some of the data provided.

Final Reminder: You have a few hours left to complete the survey. Click here to take it!

The biggest flight simulation survey is now ready for you to complete. For the past few years, Navigraph has put together a detailed and comprehensive survey to help developers, publishers, media outlets and content creators better understand the current situation within the world of flight simulation. The FlightSim Community Survey 2020 can be accessed by clicking this link.

Between November 13th and November 23rd 2020, flight simmers around the world will be able to take part in the largest flight simulation survey. Whilst the survey may be long in terms of time, the aim is to help a variety of companies ensure that future products and services are made with the results in mind. As such, it’s really important you take the time to answer the questions so that developers, publishers, content creators and media outlets can create flight simulation content suited to your needs. Your response will influence the future of the community.

As with other years, there is a focus on major simulators such as Lockheed Martin’s Prepar3D and Laminar Research’s X-Plane 11. However, this year will focus on mobile simulators, combat simulators, and of course, Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Following the survey, Navigraph will release the results publically so that everyone can see what’s going on in the industry and where people’s hearts and minds are at. Right now Navigraph anticipates releasing the results on December 10th 2020, but we’ll be sure to report and provide an analysis of the results when they are available.

For us here at FSElite, we’re really keen to learn how you consume content, what we can do in the future and how we can continue providing the community with transparent news, reviews and original content to inform you of the latest in flight simulation.
