FlightSimExpo Partner Series: Thrustmaster

The Microsoft Flight Simulator team will be attending FlightSimExpo in Houston, Texas from June 23-25! If you’re at the expo, be sure to stop by our booth in the Waltrip Hangar to meet the MSFS Team and try some great products from some of our hardware partners.

Today we’re pleased to highlight one partner who is providing flight control peripherals to our booth kiosks: Thrustmaster.

For over 30 years, Thrustmaster has been making quality products for simulator enthusiasts, such as the legendary Cougar stick which long set the bar for what a high-end flight sim peripheral could be. At the Microsoft Flight Simulator booth, attendees can try several products from Thrustmaster’s current line-up of sim products including the officially-licensed TCA Yoke Pack Boeing Edition, TPR Rudder Pedals, and T16000M HOTAS.

In addition to helping power the Microsoft Flight Simulator booth, Thrustmaster themselves have their own booth in the Waltrip Hangar (directly across from the Microsoft booth) and are Diamond Sponsors of FlightSimExpo for the fourth consecutive year.

During the event, Thrustmaster will be taking the opportunity to make a major new product announcement to the community! Tune in to the official FSExpo livestream at 1:30PM Houston time (1830 UTC) on Friday, June 23 for two major reveals: a new addition to Thrustmaster’s licensed combat hardware lineup and a sneak peek at a key piece of their 2023 roadmap that will improve modularity and customizability across all categories of flight simulation.
