FlightSimExpo is the biggest simming event in the US and one that I have visited only once but I got hooked. In fact, I visited back in 2019 and was scheduled to return in 2020 but we all know what happened, right?

Covid happened.

So, in 2023, I do plan on attending and, hopefully, I will be able to annoy some more folks with another presentation.

Registration will start on December 17 and 200 FSA members will have the chance to do it at a discount, so check out the press release below and go for it! I would love to see a lot of rotorheads!

See you there?

2023 Event Schedule

Held across two locations near Houston’s Hobby Airport (HOU), FlightSimExpo 2023 will offer flight simulation fans the chance to interact with developers, try out the latest hardware, hear the latest developments, and meet fellow sim enthusiasts.

The event kicks off on Friday, June 23 with a series of seminars and announcements from some of simulation’s biggest developers. Later Friday, registered attendees are invited to join a welcome reception and social event featuring light fare and a free drink. All Friday activities take place at the DoubleTree Houston Hobby.

On Saturday and Sunday, the event shifts to the Lone Star Flight Museum, a 130,000 sq. ft. air-conditioned museum located on Ellington Airport (EFD), about a 15-minute drive from the DoubleTree and Hobby Airport. Nestled amongst warbirds, fighter jets, and drones, attendees will find hands-on flight simulation exhibits where they can try the latest in flight simulation software and hardware. Speaker rooms will feature how-to seminars and educational discussions throughout the weekend. Museum admission is included with FlightSimExpo registration.
