  • Flight school owner
  • Flight school manager
  • Chief flight instructor
  • Assistant chief flight instructor
  • Key employee involved in the operation of a flight school
  • Person opening or considering starting a flight school
The training market is continually evolving in America and through the FSANA annual conference and its member programs, FSANA is helping schools become model training facilities.

Registration includes

  • Entry to professional sessions and workshops
  • Admission to exhibition hall with over 50 exhibitors
  • Opening reception
  • Dinner and entertainment
  • 2 luncheons
  • Coffee breaks with exhibitors

Exhibit hall

Our attendees can’t get enough of the exhibits at FSANA conferences and who can blame them. With 55 exhibitors on board in 2024 the FSANA Conference and Trade Show has become the One-Stop Supply Chain trade show for the flight training community. Our exhibitors know how to quench this audience's thirst for new products and services.
Exhibit space sold out for 2024's event. FSANA encourages businesses who are interested in engaging with top flight training providers to reserve early for 2025's event when the invite goes out this summer. 

Attention non-FSANA members

Conference scholarship

Financial assistance may be available toward conference registration. This does not include room accommodations or transportation. Please submit registration ASAP so we can contact you to discuss assistance.

The youth component

Although we are a professionals’ conference and trade show, we have endeavored to include the youth generation into the mix with limited student access to sessions and exhibits.
Additionally, we educate our business attendees on the importance of youth and their parents as customers 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.

FSANA Youth members and students enrolled in a college aviation degree program or a post-secondary aviation specialty program are invited to attend the conference for a nominal fee of $25/day. Attend Thursday or Friday, or both days. The student pass provides:

  • Entry to professional sessions and workshops
  • Admission to exhibition hall
  • Luncheon
  • Coffee breaks with exhibitors
