Flight Sim Expo 2021 Media Partnership Confirmed



Skyward Flight Media is proud to formally announce that we are a media partner for Flight Sim Expo 2021. Our co-founder, Aaron "Ribbon-Blue" Mendoza, will be in attendance in person with co-founder Santiago "Cubeboy" Cuberos and other Skyward members participating in online events. Skyward Flight Media plans to publish a series of content related to Flight Sim Expo leading up to the event.


Flight Sim Expo (FSE) is an annual flight simulation conference and tradeshow designed to showcase the power of flight simulation to pilots, air traffic controllers, students, simmers, and industry developers. In June 2019, the second-annual Flight Sim Expo welcomed 1,650 simmers and pilots to Orlando.


Flight Sim Expo 2021 takes place on September 24th-26th, 2021, at Town and Country Resort in San Diego, California, USA. As North America's community-driven flight conference, Flight Sim Expo is proudly produced by active participants of the flight simulation community.


Today the initial exhibitor list was made public with more than 25 confirmed sponsors and exhibitors. Gleim Aviation, Honeycomb Aeronautical, Prepar3D/Lockheed Martin, RealSimGear, SKALARKI electronics Ltd, Sky Blue Radio, SoFly, TFDi Design, Thrustmaster, VATSIM, X-Plane, and Yaw VR Ltd are some of the many organizations involved with this hybrid online and in-person event.


Though Microsoft has yet to be confirmed as of the time this article has been published, the organizers of FSE 2021 have released the following statement:

"We invite Microsoft to join flight simulation developers like GeoFS, Prepar3D, and X-Plane, along with more than 25 confirmed sponsors and exhibitors, at this year's FlightSimExpo, in-person or remotely. The release of Microsoft Flight Simulator has had an incredible impact in our community. We know the show won't be the same without their participation."

Following delays related to public safety due to the effect of COVID-19 on the world, FSE co-founder Evan Reiter made a point to address this directly, saying:


"We know people are excited to get back to travel and events[.] We're looking forward to meeting face-to-face at what might be the only large flight simulation get-together this year! But we also know there is still uncertainty around global travel that may preclude some exhibitors from participating in-person. Through weekly social media updates and our upcoming YouTube Live Q&A, we'll keep the community completely up-to-date on attendee and exhibitor participation rates so everyone can make an informed decision."

With that being said, it is highly recommended anyone interested in attending this event or learning more about Flight Sim Expo to visit the official website while following either their Facebook or Twitter profiles for more information about the event schedule and updates directly from the event organizers. On June 28th, 2021, a Q&A livestream will be held by the co-founders of the event to discuss various parts of this year's expo. This is a good opportunity for people with more pressing questions about the venue, travel or the expo in general.


We want to thank our viewers for their continued support of Skyward Flight Media and our endeavors to cover flight games and simulators across all levels of realism from past and present. Becoming a media partner for FSE 2021 is a significant achievement for us and it is the support we receive that propels us ever forward.
