There are less than 70 days remaining until FlightSimCon 2015! As the countdown continues, FlightSimCon is happy to announce that Austin Meyer, creator of X-Plane, will be speaking at the event. Austin will provide an introduction to X-Plane for users of FSX-based platforms and will share the latest X-Plane developments.
Also speaking at FlightSimCon is Richard Fucci, former naval aviator and past president of Freedom’s Wings International. After being partially paralyzed in an aviation accident, Richard learned to fly modified gliders, and now teaches other persons with disabilities to fly. Richard will talk about his incredible story and discuss Condor, a flight simulation program for glider training.
Richard and Austin join more than 15 other flight simulation and aviation experts on our extensive list of speakers.
