VATSIM is proud to announce our partnership and participation at the inaugural FlightSimExpo!

The event will take place 09 June – 10 June 2018 at the Flamingo Las Vegas resort.

VATSIM is planning a massive display of online flying and air traffic control consisting of air traffic controllers from our United States and Scandinavia divisions, pilots from the Boston Virtual ARTCC pilot community, flight instructors from the VATSTAR ATO, and representatives from the VATTASTIC VATSIM situational display.

Additionally, VATUSA will be hosting a live Friday Night Ops (FNO) event from the convention floor the day before the conference on 08 June from 2300z – 0400z. All VATSIM members are welcome to join us for this evening of live controlling and flying!

VATSIM encourages its members to join VATUSA and many members of the VATSIM Board of Governors at this first annual event. In addition to the chance to meet with fellow VATSIMmers, you’ll find the biggest names in at-home flight simulation at FlightSimExpo: Aerosoft, FlyJSim, Infinite Flight, Laminar Research, NATCA, Navigraph, Orbx, PILOT’S, Prepar3D, REX Game Studios, simMarket, and many more.

FlightSimExpo is a conference and tradeshow. Exhibitors will be displaying the latest in flight simulation and aviation technology in the 15,000 square foot exhibit hall. Attendees will be able to try out simulators and new products from developers across the industry, meet air traffic controllers, and learn about local non-profit aviation organizations. The event runs all day on Saturday, June 9 and until 3pm on Sunday, June 10.

Alongside more than 45 exhibitors, the conference will feature education-oriented seminars and presentations from a panel of Twitch streamers, PMDG’s Robert S. Randazzo, CFII Jason Miller, Captain John Cox, home cockpit builders Matt Ford and Tom Gauvin, and more! VATUSA controllers Derek Vento and Bradley Tice, who are also controllers in real life, are speaking about the benefits of VATSIM, and careers with the FAA, on Sunday afternoon.

There are great door prizes, discounts available on local attractions including flying a full-motion Boeing 737 NG simulator, and so much more!
