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