The conference and tradeshow is an all-ages event that welcomes simmers and pilots of all experience levels. The in-person event features a 30,000 square foot exhibit hall where attendees can try the latest in simulation technology, experience virtual reality, and win prizes in landing competitions and other contests. The event also hosts a series of seminars on flight simulation topics. This year’s presenter lineup includes experienced flight simmers, airline pilots, flight dispatchers, an NTSB accident investigator, and developers of flight simulation software and hardware.
Lockheed Martin will be in attendance to represent Prepar3D, a visual simulation platform that allows users to create training scenarios across aviation, maritime, and ground domains. Prepar3D has become the go-to platform for serious flight simmers and developers creating top-tier simulation add-on products. The Prepar3D team will be hosting a “questions and answers” session with in-person attendees at 3:15pm PDT on Saturday, September 25.
For those unable to physically attend, FlightSimExpo 2021 is offering an online registration for $15. This online registration includes exclusive access to event seminars and the ability to chat and engage with participating developers throughout the weekend. In partnership with the large online networks, virtual attendees will also be able to participate in a simulator fly-in to KSAN on Saturday alongside other online activities during the weekend.
