Registration for FlightSimExpo 2019, held June 7-9 at Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, is now open. In addition to two-day event access, drinks and appetisers, and a conference bag, FlightSimExpo registration now includes a free, 6-month membership to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA).
This free membership, designed for pilots and also for simmers with no real-world flight time, offers six editions of EAA Sport Aviation Magazine, access to local EAA chapters, free entry to more than 300 museums, and discounted attendance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
Attendees can register for FlightSimExpo at www.flightsimexpo.com for just $70. Anybody who has already registered should check their email for instructions on how to add the free EAA membership onto their existing registration.
There are now more than 50 confirmed exhibitors for the 2019 event, surpassing last year’s total with a month to go before exhibitor registration closes. FlightSimExpo 2019 will feature presentations and panels from YouTube content creators, flight simulation developers, airline personnel, helicopter sim enthusiasts, and more during two days of back-to-back seminars in two conference rooms.
Event seminars take place on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9. Following a welcome and introduction by conference organisers, YouTubers Jason Miller and Steve Thorne (“FlightChops”) will speak about the benefits of sim for real-world training. Then, Twitch streamer chillywillies will moderate a panel designed to connect attendees to flight simulation developers, who will discuss their backgrounds, their perspectives on the flight simulation industry, and what is next for the community.
Conferences at the show then splits into two rooms. In ‘The Right Seat’, Prepar3D, Gleim Aviation, Parallel 42, Virtual Fly, Mettar Simulations, Noble Flight Simulation, and Mindstar Aviation will each have 30 minutes to share their latest developments and news.
Meanwhile, in the second room, attendees can learn more about flight operations from a real-world dispatcher and will hear from airline pilot and airshow performer Paul Schulten.
On Sunday, June 9, the schedule continues in two parallel rooms. ‘The Right Seat’ will feature an in-depth series on Using At-Home Flight Simulation. Designed for the first-time simmer, presentations from FSElite’s Calum Martin, Sebastian Knoop-Troullier, and Ethan Hawes will take attendees through the step-by-step process of setting up and using an at-home simulator. Meanwhile, ‘The Left Seat’ will feature the finals of the X-Plane Landing Competition, an in-depth seminar on cockpit building, and a discussion of helicopter flight simulation.
