FSA to host ‘Year-End Cross-Community Panel Discussion’

The folks at Flight Simulation Association have pulled together an impressive panel to discuss flight sims in 2022 and beyond. There are quite a few high profile and highly anticipated product releases coming up and this next year looks like it will potentially top what we saw from the simulation world in the last couple of years.

So be sure to listen in on Saturday, December 18 at 2000 GMT (3:00 pm EST) for what should be a very interesting panel. I will soon have a link up on the Stormbirds YouTube channel to share as I’ll be doing a simultaneous cast of the event in conjunction with the FSA.


2022 promises some highly-anticipated product releases, including X-Plane 12, several new airliners for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and some exciting new scenery projects across desktop flight simulation. As the year draws to a close, everyone is invited to join developers and content creators for a special live event discussion flight simulation add-on development. Featuring video panelists from Blu Games, Flightbeam, FlightFX, Laminar Research, NZA Simulations, and Orbx, the 90-minute livestream will focus on how add-ons are created, distributed, and enjoyed by our community. 

The panel will answer questions like: 

  • Submitted by FSElite: “What are your thoughts on ‘overlapping development’ – is having more than one developer working on an airport a good thing?”
  • Submitted by Chewwy94: “We’re expecting a few big releases in 2022 – what are your predictions and plans going into the new year?”
  • Submitted by FlightFX: “What does it take to be a successful flight simulation developer?” 

Everyone is welcome to participate. We encourage pilots and flight simmers to watch the stream live on December 18 at 2000 GMT via Flight Simulation Association, on YouTube, or with any of the participating content creators. If you are a flight simulation developer or a content creator, please reach out to FSA for information on getting involved.

Win great prizes. Everyone participating live will have the chance to win prizes! The list includes products from Aerobask, Aerosoft, Canada4XPlane, Captain Bob Flight Simulation, SimWorksStudios, and TFDi Design! There will be multiple prize draws conducted live during the stream. 


Watch with your favorite content creators. We’ve invited content creators from across the community to host “watch parties” on their channels. You’ll be able to catch the livestream on multiple Twitch and YouTube channels, including with Chewwy94, Moosestaffa, and the Stormbirds YouTube Channel. Several developers will also be hosting a “simulcast” on their social channels.
