Orbx Logo 1920

Orbx has announced the launch of their official Twitch streaming channel.

The all new and official Twitch channel will go live for the first time in late October, with the streams set to show off scenery and airport previews while also giving a stage to company news and competitions. In the announcement on the Orbx forum, CEO John Venema is quoted as saying that this channel is something he has always wanted to do.

Live streams on the channel will be hosted by the company’s Community and Marketing Manager, Aimee Sanjari, alongside well known and established Twitch streamer, Brendan Quinn – better known by his channel name of Dirkadurka. The company felt that Brendan was a suitable choice to get involved with the channel being that he has many years of streaming and simming experience, while also being a regular user of both major simulators, Prepar3D and X-Plane.

With the first stream set to kick off at the end of October, registered Twitch users can head over to the brand new channel to follow it and be notified when the inaugural stream goes live.

Oz Flight Sim Expo Dates & Location Announced


Good news for those of us on the other side of the world who were glued to the FSElite coverage of FSExpo in Las Vegas last month – something a little closer is happening later in the year. Oz Flight Sim Expo has been announced for 2018, and it’s coming to the Historic Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia over the weekend of November 17 and 18.

Being held in the HARS main hangar at Wollongong airport, Oz Flight Sim Expo is the only event of its kind in Australia. Catering to the flight sim beginner, right through to the most experienced flight simmer and aviation enthusiasts, the expo will have something for everyone. The HARS aircraft on site will create a perfect backdrop for the expo, with such displays as a Bell AH-1 Huey Cobra, Hawker Hunter FR-74S and VH-OJA – a former Qantas 747-438 that currently holds the world record for the longest commercial flight from London to Sydney in 1989 – just to name a few.

In 2018, the organisers are putting together Australia’s largest flight sim meet, aiming to have flight simmers from all over the country, and abroad, come together to fly their favourite flight simulator on their own equipment during the expo.

Event director Ross Farquharson said: “We are delighted to be bringing the Oz Flight Sim Expo for 2018 to HARS. HARS is a well-established organisation boasting one of the greatest collection of historical aircraft, including the record-holding Qantas 747-400, and we are excited to bring the Oz Flight Sim Expo to this amazing venue”.

Expressions of interest from potential event sponsors and exhibitors are now open and should be directed to [email protected]

Tickets will go on sale August 17, with adults priced at $20ea, Seniors/Concession $15ea, Kids 5-14yo $8, and children under 5 free.
