The Flight Simulation Association (FSA) has just announced more than 50 hardware, software, training, and community organizations that will participate in this year’s FlightSimExpo, schedule to take place on June 23-25, 2023 in Houston. This year’s initial exhibitor list is the largest in the show’s history, and features some of flight simulation’s biggest names!
Hardware exhibitors are headlined by Honeycomb Aeronautical, Thrustmaster, and SimFab, which specializes in modular racing and flight simulation cockpits. Meanwhile, Diamond Sponsors include Navigraph, Orbx, Lockheed Martin – Prepar3D, and Laminar Research. iniBuilds, whose releases for MSFS we’ve followed extensively, will make its first appearance at the show. PMDG will also return as a Diamond Sponsor, and simMarket/simFlight, a platform used by developers and publishers since 1997, will continue to support the event.
Evan Reiter, co-founder of FSA, expressed his delight at the high level of support shown by the exhibitors, saying, “Our unique fly-in venue—coupled with this incredible and varied set of partners—has got us counting down the minutes until we’re back together again in Houston.”
FlightSimExpo attendees can look forward to product reveals and the latest in flight simulation technology. The event will also include a series of reveals on Friday, June 23, from Thrustmaster, FastCow Productions, Allied Cockpit Equipment, TFDi Design, Virtual Fly North America, and Honeycomb. The full schedule will be released in the coming weeks.
In addition to the exhibitors, the event will also see the public debut of the Yawman Arrow, a handheld gaming controller designed specifically for the flight simming community. Thomas Nield, co-founder of Yawman Flight, said, “Having spent the last two years working on the Arrow, FSExpo is the perfect setting for Yawman to introduce our new handheld.”
Other confirmed exhibitors and sponsors include Altimeter Motives, Blackbird Simulations, GeoFS, Gleim Aviation, Hype Performance Group, Infinite Flight, Just Flight, LIFT Academy, Northern Reliable Transport, Pimax Innovation, SKALARKI electronics Ltd., SoFly, Stay Level Avionix, LLC, Virtual Fly North America, and Yawman Flight.
