[FINAL CHANCE] Community Choice Awards 2019 – Stage 2 NOW OPEN

FSELITE Com Choice Awards

[FINAL CHANCE TO VOTE – CLOSES TONIGHT AT 11PM ZULU]

Update: We have extended the deadline until Jan 10th 2020 to further votes to be cast as we appreciate over the holidays period many people were busy.

Our second stage of the Community Choice Awards is now open. With the shortlist revealed (below), you can now vote for the Winner and Runner-Up for each category. From each category, you have 6 options to pick from. We’re asking that you pick 2 from each category. We will then tally the votes and eventually declare who has won the Community Choice awards for 2019.

2019 certainly saw a huge increase in X-Plane add-ons being released. From new aircraft to ports of old scenery – the X-Plane community has certainly seen a thriving range of add-ons, which is only getting bigger and bigger. For FSX/P3D users, highly anticipated aircraft were finally released and developers really took advantage of PBR materials in the simulator to make scenery look spectacular. Undoubtedly, 2019 will also be remembered as the year Microsoft announced to the world their solid intentions on returning to the flight simulation market with their new Flight Simulator coming out in 2020.

As a reminder, all of these picks were chosen by the community during stage one. Additionally the products selected in the initial case were releases that occured in 2019 (between January 1st and December 9th). Those with developer or general community awards were selected either because they were extremely active in that year (e.g. a release or major update) or provided a service that is generally known by the community in the year.

Voting for FINAL stage closes on December 10th @ 23:00pm zulu. 

Vote now!
