Announcing FlightSimCon 2014

Posted on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:26:57 GMT

On June 7 and 8, 2014, FlightSimCon hosts its second annual flight simulation event at Windsor Locks, CT. It will be held at Bradley Airport’s New England Air Museum. But many people wonder just what the flight simulation event is, and what will it offer?

Aviation professionals will find FlightSimCon’s aviation event the perfect place for networking. It’s full of real aviators, as well as those who love to use the desktop simulation software. Some of the people who attended the first year included air traffic controllers and those who have a passion for everything flight related.

Networking is essential for those looking to get ahead in their career, or those making the move from hobbyist to professional. It’s not what you know, but who you know. Meeting the right people at this event could open doors you have never experienced before. Not only that, but you will gain the support you need to develop your aviation career further, whether you want to be an air traffic controller, pilot or do some of the behind the scenes work.

Get Up to Date Software

Simulation software is essential for pilot training. However, it’s also fun for people to use who just don’t have the funds right now to learn how to fly. Vendors all around the world develop aviation software and equipment. Some of it is designed purely for entertainment purposes, but there are others designed for training and practical use.

FlightSimCon’s second annual flight simulation event is the chance to meet the various companies and designers. It’s your chances to find out more about the different types of software available, and play on the demo. Aircraft owners can buy something to keep their skills up while they’re grounded, and trainers can trial the latest equipment to find something that suits their needs perfectly.

This is also a great chance for the companies and individuals to find out just what you want. It’s your chance to get into discussions with the developers to talk about software needs, highlights you’d like to see and equipment ideas that would make jobs easier and safer.

It’s a Chance to Talk to the Professionals

Ever wondered if flying is for you? Many people have, but how do you find out before you get in the air? While flight simulation software is a good way to find out, you also need to talk to those with experience. Pilots will be around to talk to, and many give presentations during the weekend to share advice, knowledge and stories.

But what about the other areas of aviation? Maybe you want to develop the new systems or you want to get into air traffic control. There will be people within those roles around too. A number of speakers from all aspects of aviation are already booked and ready to share their advice, skills and tips.

It’s Time to Be a Part of Something Big

GameSpy’s multiplayer recently closed down. It was a major setback in the aviation software world, and thousands of you complained.  Well, FlightSimCon is looking to be a part of a “Beyond GameSpy” experience, and it wants you to be a part of that. Multiplayers from all over the world are invited to come along, share their ideas and even software that they have started to design.

There are hundreds of developers looking to close this gap. This is your chance to be a part of that. They want to hear what you think, and they want to see your designs. You could become part of their team and really make a difference in the aviation software world.

Take a Look Around the New England Air Museum

If you’re new to the area or you’re visiting from out of town, you may never have seen the Air Museum in New England. It’s a wonderful place, taking you through the history of aviation, and a chance to see models of old and new flights. You get the chance to see it all when you book your ticket for the second annual flight simulation event with FlightSimCon. The registration fee includes the ticket price to enter the museum.

It is time to open your mind to something exciting. The FlightSimCon event is something for all levels of passion and expertise, and is a great day out for the whole family. Whether you love playing on the simulation software for fun or you need something to improve your training experience, this is the event for you. Check out the new items and products, and network with the biggest names in the industry. You will soon find yourself one step ahead.
