ORLANDO – May 9, 2019 – FlightSimExpo will welcome EAA, Gleim Aviation, iCloth, PilotEdge, Redbird, and more than 55 other exhibitors to Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld(R) on June 7-9. Following a sold-out introductory event last summer, the second-annual FlightSimExpo will show pilots how their training, proficiency, and currency can benefit from at-home simulation.

The conference has teamed up with Gleim Aviation to produce a new video highlighting the benefits of simulation for real-world pilots. The video features YouTuber Steve “FlightChops” Thorne, who is setting up a home simulator as he pursues his instrument rating. It also includes commentary from CFII Jason Miller, host of The Finer Points Aviation Podcast, who is Steve’s real-world CFII. Steve and Jason will keynote FlightSimExpo 2019 with a panel discussion on Saturday, June 9.

Gleim Aviation will be providing a special code to flight schools that offers student pilots a 50% discount on event registration. Gleim is also reaching out to Central Florida high schools to offer a 75% discount for high school students interested in learning more about aviation.

FlightSimExpo is open to the public and welcomes first-time simmers of all ages! Public registration is $70 until May 15, which includes two-day tradeshow floor access, panels and seminars, a conference bag, drinks and appetizers during the event social, and a 6-month membership with the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA).

FlightSimExpo is a tradeshow and conference. On the tradeshow floor, hardware and software exhibitors will be showcasing their products and services.
