FlightSimExpo 2023 will take place on June 23-25, 2023 at the Lone Star Flight Museum, Ellington Airport, Houston.
Following the success of the hybrid event in San Diego last year, the upcoming show will again feature options to attend in-person or watch a live stream of the presentations and announcements from anywhere in the world.
Lone Star Flight Museum has space for more than 2,000 attendees across two air-conditioned hangars. The facility is also home to the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame and multiple aviation learning exhibits, including certified Redbird flight training devices that will be available to attendees.
Event organiser and FSA co-founder Phil Coyle said: “We couldn’t be more excited about this year’s venue. It’s the perfect backdrop for the FlightSimExpo exhibit floor and a fantastic city for aviation and aerospace fans like us.”
On Saturday and Sunday, attendees will be able to try out the latest in flight simulation software and hardware as well as how-to seminars, educational discussions and announcements from some of simulation’s most prominent developers. As in past years, Friday will feature an add-on series of group discussions before the main event on the weekend.
The museum is a 15-minute drive from Hobby Airport, 35 minutes from Intercontinental and about 15 minutes from nearby attendee hotels. The museum also has airside access, which will allow visitors to fly their own aircraft to the event for the first time. The area is one of America’s largest aerospace centres: Houston is a hub for two major airlines, NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Space Center Houston and more. As in past years, discounts on hotels, airfare, rental cars, and more will be available to attendees.
FSA’s Evan Reiter explained: “Save the dates, start thinking of plans, but please don’t lock your travel in just yet. As always, we are working with hotels in the area, 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.”
More information about hotel options, attractions and travel will be available later this year. Registration for attendees and exhibitors begins in December. As North America’s community-driven flight simulation conference, organisers invite the community to share their ideas, feedback and suggestions for the show.
