FSEMC 2012 invites all Flight Simulation fans
Flight Simulation Engineering and Maintenance conference (FSEMC) in Dallas (USA), held on 17-20 of September, once again invites all Flight Simulation fans to share their experience and knowledge. The objectives of the conference are to promote reliability and reduced operating cost in flight simulators by improving engineering, maintenance, and support techniques through the exchange of technical information. Each year this conference brings simulation specialists together from all over the world, providing innovative and cost efficient solutions to simulator operational and maintenance problems. This year over 300 attendees are arriving, ranging from training centers to flight simulator manufacturers. FSEMC is well known for its nature, which is somehow different from other simulation conferences, being more of a businesslike and not that technological – for many years conference organizers have included such activities like social evenings, spouse occupation during conference time and many other.

Asia-Pacific – future of aviation training
According to recent Boeing’s Pilot and Technician Outlook, Asia Pacific region is expected to have huge demand for aviation personnel by the year 2030 – nearly 430,000 people. This number includes 185,600 new pilots and 243,500 technicians. And that is where problem appears. If we will take into account data provided by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), Asia-Pacific region does not have capabilities required to keep up with future demand. To reach those numbers, nearly 10,000 new pilots have to be trained each year. This is the biggest shortage in the world. According to this, Asia-Pacific might become Nr. 1 industry for flight simulator manufacturing and service companies.
