Flight Simulation Association (FSA) has announced the dates and location for the next FlightSimExpo. The largest flight simulation conference in North America will return next year, June 23-25 2023, and will take place in Houston, TX.
After last year’s edition in San Diego, a hybrid event that took place in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, with all the restrictions that came with it, FlightSimExpo hopes to bring to flight simulation enthusiasts an exciting new edition next year. For that, the organizers chose a brilliant new location: the Lone Star Flight Museum!
This will definitely be a more exciting venue than the usual conference center in a hotel. Besides being closely related to real aviation and the “perfect backdrop for the FlightSimExpo exhibit floor,” according to Phil Coyle, FSA co-founder, this location also enables a series of exciting new opportunities for visitors, who will be able to see real airplanes and even fly in certified Redbird flight training devices.
Naturally, being FlightSimExpo, visitors will have the chance to find hands-on exhibits from many major players in the industry, trying the latest software and hardware for the hobby. As usual, there will also be a variety of seminars, educational discussions, and even important announcements from developers and creators.
A cool new aspect of Houston’s Lone Star Flight Museum is that it’s located at Ellington Airport, and since the Museum has airside access, FlightSimExpo attendees will be able to fly their own aircraft to the event!
“Save the dates, start thinking of plans, but please don’t lock your travel in just yet. As always, we are working with area hotels, airlines, rental car options, and attractions to secure discounted rates for our attendees. We’re expecting awesome, add-on experiences at NASA, air traffic control facilities, and more – and you’ll want to have that full picture before you start booking.”Evan Reiter, Organizer and FSA co-founder
More information about hotel options, attractions, and travel opportunities will be available later this year. Registrations are expected to begin in December, so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare and plan for your trip to Houston. Make sure to visit www.flightsimexpo.com for more information.
We couldn’t be present in last year’s edition due to travel restrictions to the US, but hopefully we’ll be able to attend the show in 2023 and bring you on-time updates and great new content from the largest flight simulation event in the US!
