Flight simulation enthusiasts are likely familiar with the flight simulation conferences taking place regularly overseas, the biggest of which is probably FlightSim Conference held in Germany this March . Flight simulation conferences in Europe have drawn thousands of attendees and provided a fascinating forum for simmers and vendors to interact.
Inspired by this success, FlightSimCon aims to achieve the same in the United States. The FlightSimCon team believes that North America can also support a large flight simulation conference—but your support is needed to make it happen! North American Flight Simulator fans: this is your chance as a flight simulation community to build a great conference in our own backyard.
FlightSimCon 2015 is embarking on its third year. This year’s event is hosted at the New England Air Museum just off the grounds of Bradley International Airport near Hartford, Connecticut on June 13-14, 2015.

FlightSimCon is proud to have an exciting list of exhibitors already confirmed for the 2015 conference. The conference expects to secure even more exhibitors and speakers in the next few months.
FlightSimCon needs large amounts of flight simulation enthusiasts like you to attend this conference to make it a long-term success . With the support of the North American flight simulation community, FlightSimCon has the potential to bring thousands of people together this year.
As the conference is still a few months away, at this point the organizers would like to ask for the community’s support in identifying additional companies and/or speakers who have an interest in participating with the conference. If you, or anyone you know, is willing to speak or exhibit at the event, please connect us!
Of course, the best way individuals can support this event is by making plans to attend! Registration is just for the entire weekend, which includes access to the New England Air Museum. For more information and to register, visit the Homepage .
FlightSimCon 2015 is North American’s flight simulation conference. They look forward to your support in making this a sustainable, annual event for years to come.
