Come and join us for our next FSElite Group Flight! Our brand new series of flights Low N’ Slow focuses on the smaller aircraft and airports enabling pilots to be toured around various points of interest and other naturally beautiful areas of the world often overlooked.

We’ll be joining the event online via VATSIM. No controllers have been confirmed, but this is all about the exploration of the region. We’ll create some channels within our discord for a ‘unicom’ experience also.

Our first Low N’ Slow flight focuses on the Rockies. Our partners at Orbx have created a huge range of beautiful products in the region, which we’ll be taking full advantage of.

Starting off at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (KBZN) and then flying a specifically designed route to explore many parts of the Rockies. We’ll make a quick stop off at West Yellowstone Airport (KWYS) before then continuing onto our final destination at Jackson Hole Airport (KJAC).

The adventurous journey will begin on Saturday, November 3rd @ 16:00 zulu. You can grab the journey plan from SkyVector at this link. We’ll be reminding you guys as we get closer to the event as well as further details on how we plan to arrange everything. For now, mark your calendar.

To celebrate the Low N’ Slow flight, Orbx has kindly promised some nice savings on products related to the event!

FSElite Original: Looking Back on Flight Sim 2018

Lookingback Cosford Flight Sim 2018

During every event, me and the team have attended since we have started working on FSElite in 2016 has always been something incredibly special. I am lucky enough to work with a passionate, dedicated, and engaging team of people who stop at nothing to provide great content for the community.

Flight Sim 2018 was no exception. The team didn’t let me down and 7 of them dropped everything to come spend a few days in England to meet the community, shake hands with their favourite developers, and even spend 4 hours discussing a past review. It’s just incredible how, after how all these years, it was the first time I’ve met some of these guys face-to-face. Even more incredible is the fact that these events really do allow us to meet the community in person, hear what they think about the website, what our future should be, and give us feedback on what we could do better. Shaking their hands, talking to them and giving them free biscuits is what we thrive on; and for that reason, I feel Flight Sim 2018 was another success for the flight sim community.

Of course, we weren’t the only people there representing our virtual hobby. There were plenty of developers including Orbx, projectFLY, FSLabs, Aerosoft, and of course, the organiser of the event: Just Flight. It’s also important to remember the smaller guys there too like Pilot Plus (excellent X-Plane developer), Virtual Flight Experience (737 Fixed Base Sim) and Fulcrum Simulator Controls (upcoming new yoke system).

There were also plenty of other exhibitors at the event who really impressed us such as the guys at Infinite Flight and Remex Software (the developers behind Deadstick Bush Flight Sim). With so many different developers, publishers and hardware makers participating, there was always something to see and do.
