Flight school operators, chief flight instructors, and persons considering opening a flight school should take special note of the upcoming International Flight School Operators Conference. The Flight School Association of North America (FSANA) annual event 2020 edition is being held at the Bally's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Registrants will have over 20 multi-track sessions to choose from during mornings and afternoons of February 20 and 21. Evenings are left open to explore Las Vegas. A preview day, Wednesday, February 19, includes an attendee reception and dinner and, new for the 2020 conference, an afternoon mentoring session.
A conference registration booklet and form can be downloaded at www.fsana.com.
Registration includes exhibit hall admission, two full days of sessions and round tables specific to flight school operations and doing business, lunches, and the preview reception and dinner. Vendors, suppliers, government agencies and professionals from the training industry are present to share tools, resources and strategies for doing business in the field of flight training.
According to Robert Rockmaker, FSANA president and CEO, “Anyone in the business of flight training should attend in order to learn, network, and meet supply chain partners and others who interface with their industry. For 2020 we have increased the number of education tracks even further since more than doubling our choices last year to meet the increased demand for additional content in the ever-changing world of flight training.”
The new mentoring session on Wednesday afternoon entitled "I'm New Here," is intended for conference registrants who are interested in starting, or who have just started, a new school. Some of the most successful school owners and managers in the industry will be on hand to inspire and give advice.
