Phase 1 of the FSElite Community Choice Awards 2018 Now Open

Cc (1)

Welcome to this year’s Community Choice Awards! We’re confident that many of you enjoyed at least 1 product (or more) from 2018’s massive collection of new releases. Whether that was a new aircraft, impressive piece of scenery or useful utility – there was something for everyone.

Over the past 3 years, we have run our Community Choice awards as a way for the community to provide feedback to developers who have released a product from the past year, and to give you an opportunity to vote for the best of the best. It’s like the Oscars of Flight Simulation. The winners get something: the recognition they deserve.

You can vote here.

Phase One

Voting Opens: 19-Jan-2019

Voting Closes: 24-Jan-2019 (23:59z)

The first part is ‘Open Voting’. We list all of this year’s categories and you, as a community, have free reign over which products are then put forward for us to shortlist.

For example, in the category of “Aircraft of the Year”, you will be able to submit whatever choice you’d like into the box. (Providing it was released during 2018).

After phase 1 is closed, we gather all the votes and then we compile our shortlist of appropriate products. The shortlist is a choice of the most popular/reoccurring products/developer in each category.

What are the categories?

BEST LARGE AIRCRAFT

Any aircraft with more than 16 seats qualify here.

BEST SMALL AIRCRAFT

General aviation, helicopters or private jets – plenty to choose from in this category.

BEST AIRCRAFT DEVELOPER

You’ve picked your favourite aircraft, now tell us your favourite aircraft developer of 2018.

BEST LARGE AIRPORT

Large terminals, long runways and plenty of traffic to keep you occupied. What was your favourite in 2018?

BEST SMALL AIRPORT

Maybe you’re keeping it local or just prefer the more peaceful nature of those smaller airports.

BEST REGION

Sometimes, it’s the recreation of an entire region that enhances your experience over a single airport.

BEST SCENERY/REGION DEVELOPER

Loads of scenery in 2018, but who deserves to win the best scenery/region developer award?

BEST UTILITY

You have the perfect aircraft and perfect scenery – but what was the best utility to immerse you in flying?

BEST UTILITY DEVELOPER

Who created the best utility of 2018 which enhanced your flying during the year?

BEST PUBLISHER

There’s a range of publishers, but who provided you with the best overall experience in 2018?

BEST USER SUPPORT

Part of buying a product means getting the support of a developer. Who provided you the best support?

BEST USE OF NEW TECHNOLOGY

Lots of new technology came out for the simulators in 2018, but what product best used it?

BEST FREEWARE

You don’t always have to buy to get a quality product. Which freeware product in 2018 delivered a payware experience?

MOST EXCITED FOR 2019

2018 was a fantastic year for products. 2019 looks to be equally as exciting, but what you most excited for in 2019?
