The only annual conference focused on the business of flight training

  • Assistant chief flight instructor
  • Key employee involved in the operation of a flight school

Exhibit hall

Our attendees can’t get enough of the exhibits at FSANA conferences and who can blame them. Better than a tradeshow, they get one-on-one attention, not 2 minutes and a brochure. Our exhibitors know how to quench this audience's thirst for new products and services. 
 
Exhibitors reserve your spot To exhibit. Want to sponsor or exhibit? FSANA encourages businesses who are interested in engaging with top flight training providers to reserve your booth early.

The youth component

Although we are a professionals’ conference, we have endeavored to include the youth generation into the mix with limited student access to sessions and exhibits as well as special youth-only sessions.
 
Additionally, we strive to educate our business attendees on the importance of youth and their parents as a revenue stream and remind them that even a twelve year old loves flying planes and represents the future of aviation and aerospace. Ask any of our flight school members who have returned home after a FSANA conference and started an AeroCamp program and they will testify to the rewards of opening the door to the youth in their community.
