Flight Sim Events 2018
2017 is over, which means many of us are looking ahead at new opportunities to make the most of the new year. If you love travelling as much as we do, it's a safe bet that you are going to want to know about all the awesome flight sim events coming up in 2018. Luckily, we are here to tell you all about them!
While we haven't got our own diaries sorted yet, stay tuned to our channels to find out where you can find the FSW crew over the next 365 days.
German Flight Sim Conference
Where: AERO Friedrichshafen, Friedrichshafen, DE
When: 18-21 April 2018
The German Flight Sim Conference is the premier flight simulation event in Germany. Hosted by Aerosoft, this is a great opportunity to mingle with German and English speaking simmers alike.
If you've attended this show before, you'll notice that this year's setup is a little different. For the first time the conference will be held in the midst of AERO Friedrichshafen, a global GA-focused show. Not only will there be lots of simulation fun to be had, but you will also be surrounded by real world aviation exhibitors and enthusiasts. Sounds positively wunderbar if you ask us!

Flight Sim Expo
Where: Flamingo Las Vegas Resort, Nevada, USA
When: 9-10 June, 2018
We have a new kid on the block this year: Flight Sim Expo is a breakaway event being held in early June in Las Vegas (Need we say more?) with the aim of bringing our beloved hobby at long last to the Pacific coast. Organized by the Boston Virtual ARTCC, the guys formerly behind FlightSimCon (see below), this event holds a lot of promise already despite it being early days.
Confirmed exhibitors include: Aerosoft, AirDailyX, Boston Virtual ARTCC, FlyTampa, FSFX Packages, FSElite, HiFi Simulation, iBlueYonder, Infinite-Flight, Jetline Systems, Just Flight, Orbx, PilotEdge, Prepar3D, POSCON, TFDi Design, VATSTAR, X-Plane, and more.

Where: Hyatt Regency Hotel, Dallas Texas, USA
When: 23-24 June, 2018
The month of June is going to be a busy one for us simmers! the illustrious FlightSimCon is back and taking us down deep in the heart of Texas for some flight-focused fun.
If past events are anything to go by, this is going to be a fabulous time for exhibitors and attendees alike. Dallas is easy to get to from both inside and out of the USA, and hey, Six Flags is nearby so after a day of flight fun, you can bust some G's on your favorite roller coaster!
