FSA's curated weekly news digest. Catch up on the latest in home flight simulation from the past week.

Hello! It's Saturday, August 12. We're covering a new (third) option for free MSFS model matching, venue options for FlightSimExpo 2024, and a way to get PA announcements into flight sim (because who doesn't want to hear when it is and isn't okay to use your mobile device?). 

Feedback? Email us at info@flightsimassociation.com.


Multiplayer model matching is one of the most sought-after features that flyers in MSFS have been looking for.

The FSExpo audience enjoys Friday's opening presentations in Houston.

We're looking for your opinion on where FlightSimExpo 2024 should be.

I had the chance to try the Pimax Crystal during FSExpo in Houston and, despite a mere 10 minutes or so immersed with headset and flying in MSFS, I came away very impressed.
