FSElite 2016 User Awards

fselite-user-awards2016-jpg

To celebrate the start of 2017, we take a look back at some of the “Best-of” 2016. Everything from aircraft, and scenery to utility and publisher of the year.

The selection below was carefully picked by the FSElite team, and we’re looking to YOU to pick the best from the best.

All the products below have been released or updated in 2016. We’ve narrowed it down to 5 per category to make the selection easier. Of course, some names may appear more than once, and we’ve tried to make it as varied and fair as possible. Not everything and everyone’s favourite is here, but hopefully there’s a good selection to pick from.

By submitting your name and email address, and completing the form, we’ll enter you into a competition to win some free Flight Sim merchandise!

Use the Google form below.

Voting will close on February 10th 2017 at 2030zulu!

    1. Yeah as are other people. It was in the running, but when you have to pick 5, the QW787 just didn’t cut it from the others. Plus we didn’t want to populate the whole list! Hope to see your vote!

    1. When I checked, EDDM came out in 2016, but happy to be proven wrong! 🙂 And yes a freeware category would be a fantastic idea!! I’ll keep that in mind for future stuff.

      We’ll be planning some freeware stuff very soon.

  1. It got released on 21.12.2015 (according to simmarket) and I am quite sure I bought it shortly after. Those christmas-releases are easy to remember and EDDM was quite controversial here in Germany 🙂

    1. Thanks David. I honestly thought it was a 2016 release (January) from the research I did.

      As people have already voted I will leave it for the time being but thank you for pointing it out. I will put a little caveat on the form to not confuse people.

      Cheers and keep in tocuj

  2. Surprised the IXEG didn’t make the “best of aircraft” list. out of all of them the ixeg delivers the most fun and immersion for me

    1. Right now, we don’t have anyone on the team who use X-Plane extensively enough to provide real insight. If you do and would want to join the FSElite team, shoot me an email! I’d love to expand our X-Plane coverage and knowledge.
