Last but not least, today (September 24), the Flight Simulation Association will host a live panel on the topic of “Gaming vs. Flight Simulation”.

Yours truly will be there to try to represent both sides of the issue, alongside friends from FSElite and HeliSimmer.

The panel starts at 7:00 p.m. Zulu, which translates to noon PDT, 3:00 p.m. EDT, 8:00 p.m. BST, or 9:00 p.m. CEST, depending on where you live.

Below you can read a description of the panel and find the embedded live stream ready to watch when it starts.

“Today, flight simulation is available on gaming consoles, low-end PCs, and even mobile devices. With the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator, the flight simulation hobby has become more accessible and mainstream than ever. Does this mean we are entering a new “race to the bottom” for quality flight simulation add-ons? Is it still worth developing products for the PC market?

Join some of the community’s most prominent media personalities for a discussion on the changing world of flight simulation. The live chat will also feature a Q&A segment with the audience.
