Thomas Haynes reports on North America’s largest flight simulation event
Hot and humid. Two words that almost perfectly describe the location of this year’s FlightSimExpo. The theme park city of Orlando played host to the second annual FlightSimExpo over the weekend of June 7-9 with 1,648 people descending on the sunshine state to enjoy a weekend of flight simulation. Launched in Las Vegas last year, the show is quickly establishing itself as North America’s premier flight simulation conference.
This year’s show was spread across three days with a selection of optional seminars on Friday. Dubbed ‘Captains’ Corner’, these ‘education-orientated’ seminars from big names such as Lockheed Martin, Jetline Systems, Navigraph, Orbx and Laminar Research were on offer to attendees.
