About Flight Sim 2018

We're proud to be hosting this one-day event for the sixth consecutive year and are looking forward once again to giving flight simulation enthusiasts a chance to check out the latest aircraft and other add-ons, take a look at a range of equipment from specialist flight sim PC and cockpit equipment builders, have a chat with developers, publishers and fellow virtual aviators – and no doubt pick up a bargain or two!

Entrance to the RAF Museum is free to all visitors, so join us in October and enjoy the very best of both the virtual and the real worlds of aviation in the same venue!

We guarantee a very warm welcome to experienced desktop pilots and also to aviation enthusiasts who are keen to find out more about life in the virtual skies.

Flight Sim 2018 is organised and hosted by Just Flight, in association with media sponsor PC Pilot magazine.

Here's what exhibitors and visitors said about previous Flight Sim events

We love the friendly atmosphere and historic location. It's always a tiring event with so many enthusiastic visitors, but one we wouldn't miss for the world!
Mutley's Hangar Exhibitor
The show was a pleasure and I learned a lot. I will indeed attend again next year
Árni Stefán Árnason Visitor

The best flight sim show in the UK!
PC Pilot Exhibitor
I had a superb time at the show and congratulate all who were involved in putting it on.
Martyn Mitchell Visitor
Thanks for a great day out. At 70+ I am a retired private pilot brand new to the Flight Sim concept and was grateful and pleasantly surprised at the friendly helpfulness and patience of those I spoke to.
Stuart Funnell Visitor
Your Flightsim Shows each year in my opinion are of the highest quality and it is one event that I look forward to every year.
Everton Osbourne Visitor
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I managed to have a close look at some of the exhibits before it got crowded, and was impressed by how far the technology has progressed.

The venue itself almost upstaged the show, but not quite!
Carey Wilson Visitor
The Flight Sim Show at Cosford is our main focus event for showcasing our latest and greatest flight sim PCs. It is a professionally organised, well attended event with a very high quality of clientele. Chillblast has been attending since the show’s inception and have enjoyed watching it grow and prosper into the UK’s premier annual flight simulation event.
