What Is It Like Being Part of FSElite?
Working alongside like-minded & talented content creators in the team, I have been able to share my experiences and learnings as a flight sim YouTuber. I’ve also been able to improve my skills in many different areas, such as filming, editing, and analytics to name a few. The team vibe is very friendly, enthusiastic and we all have an amazing desire to showcase and produce the best content for the flight sim community.
Over the years FSElite has provided many opportunities to create content for all different types of sceneries, aircraft, plugins, hardware through different and sims, which I have been able to use to enhance my own personal sim and content that I have created for my Aus Flight Simmer channel. In meeting and working with many third-party developers and others within the community, I have made many friendships and contacts to help further my channel.
The team really believes in giving back to the community, including us as volunteers, giving us the platforms to showcase our own content through social media and our FSElite featured YouTube community videos through the site. Flight simulation is just going from strength to strength lately and the team is very excited for the future of content creation within flight sim. We are always on the lookout to share the journey with more enthusiastic video creators. I guarantee the journey, like mine, is worth the plunge.
