Update: The event has now been postponed. Here’s the official statement:
As a result of ongoing events in Ukraine and respecting the wishes of participants, the Cross-Community Panel Discussion originally scheduled for February 26 has been postponed.
Flight simulation is a worldwide hobby and passion. Unfortunately, the situation has had a direct impact on the lives of several of our planned participants and their teams. We cannot move forward with a panel discussion designed to celebrate our community in the shadow of current events.
Our thoughts are with those impacted by the crisis. We will work to reschedule the panel discussion for a future date.
In an emergency, could a flight simmer land an airliner? How is home flight simulation impacting real-world training today? And what more should we be doing?
Watch the live panel discussion on Saturday, February 26th at 20:00 GMT.
Join Robert Randazzo (@PMDG Simulations Official), Fabio Miguez (@The Flying Fabio), Keith Smith (@PilotEdge), and Laura Laban (@Infinite Flight) for a conversation about how flight simulation is impacting real-world flying.
Like our other Cross-Community Panel Discussions, everyone who participates live will have the chance to win prizes from: Aerobask, Flight Control Replay, Infinite Flight, Laminar Research, PilotEdge, PMDG, SoFly, Thrustmaster, and X-CPL-Pilot. There will be multiple draws throughout the live session, including for our grand prize: the Thrustmaster TCA Airbus Officer Pack.
And, as always, there will be a few bonus prizes available exclusively for FSA members watching on our website! The 90-minute panel discussion is hosted by Flight Simulation Association and will be available across multiple platforms.

Alongside the video panelists, developers of freeware and payware products, content creators, and livestreamers — large and small — are all welcome to participate in the live session as chat panelists.
