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.
