Last but not least, today (September 24) the Flight Simulation Association will host a livestreamed panel on the “Gaming vs. Flight Simulation” theme.
Yours truly will be there to try to represent both sides of the issue, alongside friends from FSElite and HeliSimmer.
The panel starts at 19:00 Zulu, which translates into Noon PDT, 3:00 pm EDT, 8:00 PM BST, or 9:00 PM CEST, depending on where you live.
Below you can read a description of the panel and find the embedded livestream ready to watch along when it starts.
“Today, flight simulation is available on gaming consoles, low-end PCs, and even mobile devices. Through the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator, the hobby of flight simulation has become more accessible and mainstream than ever. Does this mean we’re entering a new “race to the bottom” for quality of flight simulation add-ons? Is it even worth developing products for the PC market anymore?
Join some of the community’s most high-profile media personalities for a discussion on how the world of flight simulation is changing. The live discussion will also feature a Q&A segment with the audience.”
