FlightSimCon 2015 is just two weeks away.! The annual aviation and flight simulation conference takes place June 13-14 at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, Connecticut.
There are more than 40 sponsors and exhibitors of the event, including Sennheiser Aviation, Daniel Webster College, and Edustation. All of the largest flight simulation developers will be in attendance, including A2A Simulations, Aerosoft, Dovetail Games, Go Flight, Jetline Systems, PMDG, Saitek, and many others, according to organizers.
One of the highlights of the conference for pilots is a how-to seminar on at-home flight simulation. “Six Steps to Setting up a Home Desktop Simulator” will be presented by Boston Virtual ATC’s Evan Reiter at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 13.
“My home simulator has been fundamental in my training, and helpful in finding a first job as a low-time commercial pilot,” says Reiter. “Platforms, hardware, software — after this session, pilots who have never even thought about a home simulator before will be able to walk out with all of the information they need to start flying online.”
This seminar is just one of 14 presentations, Q&A sessions, and panel discussions scheduled throughout the two-day conference.
In addition to participating in live demonstrations, attending exhibits and seminars, and trying out simulators, conference attendees have access to the New England Air Museum, the largest aviation museum in New England. Located just off the grounds of Bradley International Airport, the museum contains multiple hangars of interactive exhibits and displays, including more than 70 aircraft on display.
This event is open to the public and is for all ages. Registration is $60 for all FlightSimCon events for the weekend. Door prizes donated by various flight simulation organizations will be handed out throughout the event. Discounted registration fees are available for students and student pilots.
