Chrome 2021 02 11 16 38 19

The FlightSimExpo 2021 schedule and registration links are now live. Scheduled to be held on June 4-6 2021 in San Diego, North America’s community-driven flight simulation conference is looking to invite simmers around the world to join in the hybrid event.

In the press release issued by FlightSimExpo, the attendee registration this year is designed to be as flexible as possible. Registration is now open for both in-person and online attendees. Those who are looking to attend in-person can register for $70 USD, which includes access to the exhibitor and seminar halls for the whole weekend. As with previous years, Captains’ Corner is also available to add onto your registration for $10 USD. Captains’ Corner is an add-on pack that will enable you to see additional educational seminars on Friday, June 4th 2021.

If you’re wanting to be part of FlightSimExpo 2021 from home, then you are able to do so remotely. An online-only offering is also available for $15 USD. This registration will give you unrestricted access to three days of seminars via a live stream, along with the ability to view product videos, discounts and exhibitor video booths in a virtual exhibit hall.

Whilst registration is now open, FlightSimExpo will be polling registered attendees, developers and the broader community to better understand feelings and also evaluating the current global situation. Event sponsors and exhibitors will be announced following those discussions. It’s important to note that any registration packages added will not incur a charge until later in the year.

Registering now is important for the FlightSimExpo team to help them approach sponsors, exhibitors and content creators. Evan from FlightSimExpo said “when we can approach sponsors and exhibitors with attendee registration numbers, we can have a much more productive conversation and deliver a conference that is most aligned with the community’s wishes.” It is also confirmed that the FlightSimExpo website will be updated weekly with attendee registration numbers and a list of developers who are planning to attend.

We also have our first-look at the schedule and speakers has also been confirmed. Sessions include understanding VR, home cockpit construction, Microsoft Flight Simulator development and also understanding online flying. Check out the schedule page to see what’s going on.


On Saturday 13th February 2021 at 12:00pm PT (20:00 GMT), FlightSimExpo Co-Founder, Evan, will be joining Moosestaffa on Twitch to answer questions anyone from the community may have.

Whilst the situation is flexible, we can confirm FSElite intends on attending the show in-person.

You can register now for FlightSimExpo 2021 both the in-person event and the online component. You’ll be able to change or cancel your registration at no charge.

The in-person component of FlightSimExpo 2021 will be held at the iconic Town and Country Resort in San Diego. Booking through FlightSimExpo, attendees receive a discounted overnight rate and special perks. As in past years, the conference has arranged travel discounts with Delta, Enterprise, Southwest, and WestJet.

Town and Country Resort in San Diego was chosen as the hotel location due to its iconic status and great facilities. The hotel has just completed a $90 million renovation meaning the hotel now features a four-story waterslide, penthouse fitness facility, a three-acre park, five on-site dining and beverage options. The hotel is also a short walk to Fashion Valley Mall. FlightSimExpo attendees will pay discounted rates of just US$151.87 per night, including taxes and fees, which also includes other perks such as unlimited WiFi, waived hotel service charges and also shuttle services to nearby attractions.

Flight Sim Show 2020 Cancelled

DSC 3123

It’s with sadness that we are writing that Flight Sim Show 2020 has been cancelled. Whilst never formally announced with dates, the annual event was scheduled to take place in early October at the RAF Museum Cosford in the UK.

As per the announcement post on the Just Sim website, the ongoing uncertainty about large gatherings due to the global COVID-19 pandemic is the reason for the cancellation of the event. The decision has been made by both the organisers (Just Flight) and the museum.

The event is one of the largest gatherings for the Flight Simulation with over 2,000 people attending last year’s weekend show. Names such as Just Flight, Laminar Research, Orbx, Honeycomb Aeronautical and more attended last year and many of them showed off their products to the thousands of attendees.

From the press release, Just Flight said, “with Flight Sim 2020 being a real highlight of our year, and one of the few occasions when the FS community can get together in person, we’re all going to miss catching up with everybody this year.”

Flight Sim Show 2020 joins Flight Sim Expo and various other aviation-related events in being cancelled this year due to the ongoing pandemic.

News about the future of the show is to come in the future. We’ll continue to let you if there’s any news surrounding the show or other flight sim focused shows.
