On Saturday 24th July 2021 @ 20:00GMT, a panel of industry experts will be holding a special live event discussing the future of flight simulation. During this special live event, video panelists from Aerosoft, HeliSimmer.com, Hype Performance Group, Orbx, Parallel 42, and TFDi Design will discuss the state of home flight simulation and answer questions submitted by content creators and livestreamers. The event will be moderated by myself, hosted by Flight Simulation Association, and broadcast across multiple channels.
The main purpose of the cross-community panel discussion is to offer the simulation community a chance to come together. Regardless of the platform you fly, the type of simming you do, or the level of experience and involvement you have with the community, you’re invited to take part!
Closer to the time, we’ll share several links where you can watch and hopefully learn a few things about what the future of simulation holds. Discussion points will include how the new simulator has changed the community, the future of add-on development for P3D and X-Plane and also what the Xbox Edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator means for the community.
Everyone is welcome to participate. We encourage pilots and flight simmers to watch the stream live on July 24 at 2000 GMT via Flight Simulation Association, on YouTube, with Chewwy94 on Twitch, and across various other social and live platforms. You’ll be able to hear from some of your favorite developers regarding the state of home flight simulation and will have the chance to win prizes donated by participating companies.
If you are a content creator: We invite you to arrange a “watch party” with your viewers and submit one question on behalf of your community. Plus, we’ll shout out your channel and logo as part of the live broadcast. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
I look forward to seeing your questions pour in during the event and we’re all excited to dig into a deep discussion.
