Last year, Orbx took the initiative to help newcomers to the world of flight simulation through a month-long event. For 2021, the Orbx team is back with FlyJuly and it promises to be even better than before. In this month-long industry-wide event, FlyJuly will be celebrating flight simmers, community members and real-world aviators who use simulation to help them.
Throughout July, Orbx will be teaming up with many developers, publishers, content creators and community members to share brand-new content, host community fly-in sessions and stream charity events. Furthermore, Orbx will host some special promotions in the future, whilst their flight tracking app, Volanta, will host a series of new challenges for virtual pilots to complete.
We are delighted to be involved in FlyJuly ourselves. Later this month, we will be moderating a roundtable discussion with a series of key members of the development community and getting their take on what the future of flight simulation holds. We’ll share more details on that in the near future.
For now, check out the newly revamped FlyJuly website for more information on what to expect. Otherwise, take a look at the events currently planned for the rest of the month under this exciting initiative.
