VATUSA Demonstration at FlightSimCon
« on: January 20, 2017, 01:48:25 AM »

VATUSA is pleased to announce we will be participating live at FlightSimCon 2017! We encourage all VATUSA members to join us at North America’s largest aviation and flight simulation conference, which takes place June 10-11 at the Sheraton Hartford Hotel, Bradley Int’l Airport (BDL), near Hartford, CT.

This event will be VATUSA’s biggest member meet-up of the year, and we really hope you’ll join us in person. Register online now starting at $50 for the weekend. Visit to get started.

After the event, plan to stick around: we’ll be holding a live, on-network ATC event at 8pm ET on Sunday, June 11. All VATUSA controllers and pilots are welcome to bring their computers to join in an evening of socializing with other members from around the country and enjoying the top-notch ATC our division offers as we attempt to Light Up America live for one evening!

During FlightSimCon, VATUSA will be staffing 4 tables on the convention floor. We will have a live demonstration on the network featuring many of the possibilities for virtual flight and control across our division. Additionally, we will provide opportunities for the public to try controlling in VATSIM’s ATC training environment. We’d love for you to meet our controllers and staff, and, while you’re at it, check out the more than 30 other exhibitors and sponsors that are already confirmed for the event.

VATUSA encourages all of our pilots and controllers to attend FlightSimCon. This is North America’s ONLY aviation and flight simulation conference, and it needs the support of communities like ours to help keep it growing. Throughout the event, you’ll have the chance to win great giveaway items from Big Fat Simulations, David Clark, ImagineSim, and The conference will also feature a complimentary social event on Saturday night, sponsored by Private Jet Class Sponsor Orbx Simulation Systems. 

Registration for FlightSimCon is available at Standard registration for the whole weekend is $60 for general members, with discounts available for students or those actively training for a private pilot certificate. All VATUSA members attending should put VATUSA as their Company/Organization on the registration form.
