Booth information

This year will mark the start of a (hopefully long and fruitful collaboration with a big partner in the airracing world). After several years of demonstrating FlightGear in the Amsterdam / Lelystad area, and following a short stint at Innsbruck last year, this year we'll be visiting the Las Vegas / Grand Canyon area. Demo flights will be conducted off the various airorts in the area, and we'll be aiming to have a WIFI lan connection available.
