FlightSimCon

FlightSimCon 2015 takes place at the New England Air Museum on June 13-14, 2015. This annual North American aviation and flight simulation conference is entering its third year. The conference is all about promoting and expanding the use of at-home flight simulation, using platforms like Prepar3D.

For existing flight simulator users, the conference is a chance to explore other users’ setups, interact with vendors, attend seminars on improving simulator performance, and speak with flight simulation personalities. FlightSimCon will also introduce pilots to the world of flight simulation, with interactive how-to seminars on setting up a first flight simulator.

Attendees of FlightSimCon can:

  • Interact with aviation and P3D exhibitors such as Jetline Systems as well as online communities like Boston Virtual ATC, IVAO, and VATSIM
  • Participate in a free draw to win door prizes donated by Wilco Publishing and Just Planes
  • Attend ‘how-to’ seminars on setting up or improving your at-home setup
  • Meet popular YouTube personality “Frooglesim”, who will be speaking at the event
  • Hear from recreational and airline pilots about flight training, career planning, and pilot life
  • Fly a full-size Cessna 172 “sim-pit” and check out other home cockpit setups displayed by the Demonstration Team
  • Explore the 5-hangar New England Air Museum (admission is included in conference registration)

FlightSimCon is proud to have an exciting list of exhibitors and speakers already confirmed for the 2015 conference, with more being added every week. Speakers at the event include current and retired airline pilots, the Dean of the School of Aviation Science at Daniel Webster College, popular YouTube personality “Frooglesim”, flight instructors, home cockpit enthusiasts, and leaders from online flight simulation communities.

“I was surprised by the structure and extent of activities at the conference,” said Stephen Ablonczy, first-time attendee of FlightSimCon. “With interesting speakers, cool exhibitors, and lots of opportunity to try out different simulators and add-ons, there was definitely always something to do! I’m already making plans to return this year.”

Conference registration is open now. Full access to this 2-day conference is just $60, which includes admission to the New England Air Museum. The Museum is the largest aviation museum in New England, with over 70 aircraft that cover all eras of aviation on display.
