12th Annual International Flight School Operators Conference 
March 3-5, 2021 / Orlando 


Join your peers, friends and exhibitors at next year’s Flight School Operators Conference in Orlando. Come learn, network and meet government officials, supply chain partners and others who interface with your industry. We have more than doubled our session choices in the past two years. Don’t miss out on the most important two days of the year for your business.
 
Now in its 12th year, this is the annual event that has been having a huge effect on businesses like yours. The FSANA conference experience is about learning how to:
  • Increase profits
  • Engage in growth strategies and new business opportunities
  • Adapt to the latest trends and technology
  • Manage costs and be more efficient
  • Learn how to operate in the world of COVID

The only annual conference focused on the business of flight training

Whether you are an existing or new flight school, or thinking of starting one, the sessions and workshops will propel your business into the year ahead. The networking and one-on-one opportunities can’t be given a price tag. You owe it to your business to attend if you are a:
  • 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 conference and its member programs, FSANA is helping schools to become model training facilities.

Exhibit hall

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.
