Welcome to the first Flight SimCon event kicking off in the Spring 2013 in Hartford, CT!
Flight SimCon will provide a social conference format with networking and learning for enthusiasts of desktop flight simulation programs and aviation in general.
If you are involved with flight simulation programs such as Microsoft Flight Simulator (FSX/FS9) or X-Plane - and especially in the multiplayer environment - this conference is for you. Modern desktop flight simulations such as FSX have become so sophisticated and realistic that they are competitive in many respects with professional full motion simulators used to train and certify commercial pilots and air traffic controllers. If you are interested in learning about aviation career opportunities or training for aviation careers, and you understand the power of simulation, then this conference is for you!
Recent studies have indicated a massive shortage of commercial pilots in the coming decade, and a current shortage of training capacity to replace them. We believe that today's multiplayer flight sim enthusiast can be the working pilot or air traffic controller of tomorrow. We believe that those who learn flight operations via these programs can have a tremendous competitive edge in hiring, training, ability, and safety. This conference will support that development.
If you are a flight sim enthusiast participating in multiplayer environments such as Boston Virtual ATC, FS-MP, FSHost, IVAO, or FSN Virtual – this conference is definitely for you. This is an opportunity to turn what you love to do online into a real world opportunity for advancement development and good fun with peers. You won’t want to miss it.
Modern desktop flight simulation programs support not only a fun and educational experience, but also a massive underground following. We believe that this following can be an untapped resource for the future of global aviation.
Multiplayer flight sim enthusiasts function as an online community, but typically without
ever meeting their online friends face-to-face. This conference is also
intended to turn what may have been a solitary experience of gaming
into a real world opportunity for friendship, networking, learning,
growth, and fun.
The event will feature vendors and suppliers of flight simulation equipment, software and hardware, as well as vendors of real world equipment and training for real world aviation. Keynote speakers will enrich the program with their advice and knowledge, while breakout sessions on topics of interest will spur discussion, networking, opportunity, and learning.
This is an all ages conference. We recognize that multiplayer flight simulation can benefit the young student just as much as it benefits the retired airline pilot. We anticipate attendees ranging from age 14 to 70, from all walks of life, and all are welcome. We all share the common thread of the love of flight and we will all benefit from our shared experiences.
If you are a fanatic of aviation or flight simulation of any sort, this is a conference you'll definitely want to attend.
