The official press release is below. Basically, the team at Lockheed Martin have confirmed they will be in attendance to FlightSimCon later this year. They will be joined by other key names in the community including Aerosoft, Dovetail Games, FSFX Packages and more. Members of the Lockheed team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Of course, we hope they’ll also show off more of their future products, especially considering their “next major release” will be this year. I can only imagine what the questions will be…
Not only that, but we’ll be there as well with plenty of opportunity to ask questions, get a drink and pick our brains!
You can sign up NOW for your attendance to FlightSimCon 2017. We’re pretty sure this will be the biggest and best event yet, with more and more people being announced all the time.
Let us know in the comments if you’re coming.
FlightSimCon is North America’s largest annual aviation and flight simulation conference. This year, the event takes place on June 10 & 11 at the Sheraton Hartford Hotel at Bradley International Airport, just outside of Hartford, Connecticut. Prepar3D is pleased to announce we will be represented at the event and are participating in a panel discussion with fellow flight simulation developers on the first day of the conference.
FlightSimCon is designed for aviation and flight simulation enthusiasts from across the United States and around the world. Now in its fifth year, the event includes opportunities to meet exhibitors, try out products and simulator setups, and interact with a series of interesting and diverse speakers. For simmers who use Prepar3D, the event offers a great chance to meet the developers of your favorite P3D products, and to chat directly with representatives from Lockheed Martin.
