Frequently Asked Questions

Q.What are the dates and location for FlightSimExpo?

FlightSimExpo is scheduled for June 21-23, 2024. There will be optional/add-on activities such as aviation facility tours happening on the Thursday, Friday, and Monday surrounding the event.

The event will be held at Tropicana Las Vegas, a hotel, resort, and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip. Free self-parking is available at the hotel for overnight and daily visitors, and hundreds of restaurants, shops, and attractions are located within walking distance. The hotel is a quick drive, taxi, or rideshare from the airport.

Q.What registration options are available?

Details on FlightSimExpo registration are available on our registration page.

Q.Why is there no "Saturday Only" registration option?

Our three registration options are: "Entire Event" (Friday-Sunday), "Weekend Only" (Saturday and Sunday), and "Sunday Only". Because more activities and bigger presentations tend to happen on the Saturday, our "Weekend Only" option includes both Saturday and Sunday.

If you’re planning to attend the event only on Saturday, June 22, 2024, please select the "Weekend Only" registration option.

Q.Will Flight Simulation Association members get special registration rates?
Yes! As in previous years, FSA members will have exclusive access to early-bird registration and discounted rates at the show. Anyone can sign up to be an FSA member—free—at www.flightsimassociation.com.
Q.I want to bring a spouse/partner/kids. Are there discounts for additional registrants?

We’re pleased to welcome children 12 years of age and younger to attend FlightSimExpo at no charge, when accompanied by a registered adult or guardian. Please complete your registration online, then email info@flightsimexpo.com and we’ll provide a code to register a child at no charge.

We ask all attendees over the age of 12 to complete a registration. 10-20% discounts on registrations are available for FSA members and from select Media Partners.

Q.For those unable to attend in-person, will there be an online component to the event?
Yes. Based on the success of our online events in San Diego and Houston, we continue to offer FlightSimExpo as a hybrid in-person and online event. Attendees unable to attend the show in Las Vegas will be able to register for access to watch select event seminars from anywhere in the world.
Q.I’ve heard the Tropicana is nearing the end of its life. Is there a risk the hotel may not be standing in 2024?
We have confirmations from the hotel, Hilton, and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority that the hotel will be operating through 2025.
Q.I’ve heard the Tropicana is nearing the end of its life. Is the property being maintained to a decent standard?

We conducted a site inspection in June 2023 and did not identify any concerns with the state of repair of the meeting space or guest rooms. During our visit, the casino and hotel appeared extremely full. As a Hilton property, Tropicana is required to maintain brand standards including a minimum level of repair.

Of course, attendees are not required to stay overnight at Tropicana and are welcome to find their own accommodation. Similarly, should you read or encounter any concerning feedback, please share it with us. We are in regular communication with Tropicana and are happy to address any concerns with them.

Q.How was the location determined?
The location was selected following a community-wide survey in which more than 500 simmers selected Las Vegas as their top location choice.
Q.Will there be COVID-19 protocols in place?
We will follow local, state, and federal guidelines regarding COVID-19 and other attendee health and safety practices. We plan to clearly communicate any requirements above and beyond our 2023 event prior to attendee registration. At the moment, we do not anticipate requirements for masks, social distancing, or any other above-and-beyond safety measures.
Q.How can I engage with attendees and organizers prior to and during the event?
We invite everyone to join the Flight Simulation Association Discord to share thoughts and feedback about our show. Become a member for free at www.flightsimassociation.com, then join our Discord server.
