« Last post by Evan Reiter on July 19, 2018, 04:32:09 pm »
A few moments ago, it was officially announced that Orlando will host FlightSimExpo 2019 on June 7-9. Boston Virtual ARTCC is a proud partner of FlightSimExpo, and looks forward to welcoming our members, along with the rest of the simulation community, to Orlando this June. The press release below has been shared with media partners across the industry, and myself and Phil will be working on the next few days on updating our website with information about the 2019 location and some of the new and exciting features of this year's event.

As you know, BVA was an integral part of making FlightSimExpo's inaugural year in Las Vegas a tremendous success. We look forward to working with our members once again to make FlightSimExpo 2019 bigger and better yet!


After a sold-out event with over 1,100 attendees in Las Vegas, FlightSimExpo is bringing North America’s community-driven flight simulation conference to Renaissance Orlando in June 2019!

ORLANDO – July 19, 2018 – FlightSimExpo is pleased to announce that after a successful inaugural event in Las Vegas, the second annual community-driven flight simulation conference will land in Orlando on June 7-9, 2019.

Orlando, one of America’s most visitor-oriented and family-friendly cities, is a top event destination with a wide variety of nearby activities and attractions. The city boasts many domestic and international flight options and is also home to several civilian and military aviation simulation and training facilities.

“We are proud to have based our location on input from developers, exhibitors, attendees, and the flight simulation community,” says Phil Coyle. “In a recent Twitter poll, Orlando was voted the best location for 2019, consistent with feedback we’ve received from those who joined us in Las Vegas in 2018.”

The 2019 event venue is Renaissance Orlando, a Marriott hotel. Located next to one of Orlando’s historic theme parks, minutes from International Drive and Pointe Orlando, Renaissance Orlando offers an incredible atmosphere for the 2019 event. With great room rates, excellent on-site and nearby food options, and a focus on hospitality, organizers are excited to be working with Renaissance Orlando this year.

“When I was on site a few weeks ago, it was clear the venue is a great fit for FlightSimExpo,” says Evan Reiter, one of the conference’s co-founders. “Food is made from scratch in-house, the ballrooms are beautiful, there is a pool, arcade, and outdoor game spaces…really, it’s going to make for a fantastic event!”

In 2018 in Las Vegas, FlightSimExpo welcomed more than 1,100 attendees, along with 45 exhibitors and 21 speakers. Developers in attendance included Orbx, 1C Game Studios, FlyJSim, PILOT’S, REX Simulations, X-Plane, Aerosoft, Infinite Flight, NATCA, Navigraph, PilotEdge, ProSim, simFlight/simMarket, and many more. FlightSimExpo looks forward to hosting even more simmers and developers in 2019.

Conference registration for the June 2019 event will open in December, with Advance Registration starting at the same low price of just $50 for the whole weekend.
FlightSimExpo encourages our attendees to stay in touch! We’re publishing video of each of the event seminars, along with interviews and stories from the 2018 event. Visit us on Facebook, Twitter, or our newly-created YouTube channel to see why you should join us in Orlando in 2019!

I have one question: does BVAI works only when a VATSIM session is open or also offline?
The purpose of BVAI (and soon-to-be FLAi) is for VATSIM. We've designed the aircraft and model matching rules for vPilot. I've heard of some people who have used this AI traffic package with offline traffic packs, but that's something you would need to do at your own discretion as we haven't designed and cannot support this package for use in any way other than for VATSIM.

Hi, I would congratulate with you for excellent works done with BVAI. I can only imagine how huge was/is to make and maintain this add-on.
I have one question: does BVAI works only when a VATSIM session is open or also offline?

Thanks in advance and, again, congrats.

Thank you all for the warm comments!

I've been getting nothing but encouragement and support during my time at BVA. First when I was just working on small projects like FlyBVA, then as a webmaster while working on IDS and now as part of the Administration Team.

I'd like to thank the rest of the team for recognizing my work and seeing the value in it.
I will do my best keep bringing you guys new tools and improve BVA on the technology front.

Onwards and upwards!

I installed BVAI models for Vatsim but when I connect to Vpilot a load of errors come up saying can't find the model and defaults to the learjet.

Any ideas?
