    WINDSOR LOCKS, CT, USA - February 6, 2017 - FlightSimCon 2017, the largest annual aviation and flight simulation conference, is proud to announce the first round of sponsors and exhibitors for the 2017 event.

Other sponsors include SimMarket, JustPlanes, GoFlight Technologies, PILOT’s, Fly Tampa and Big Fat Simulations. In addition, the conference has partnered with PC Pilot Magazine, FlightSim.Com, and AirDailyX, who will all be attending and covering the event.
