Ever wanted to know how those pilots land on an aircraft carrier? At Otronicon, you’ll see firsthand.
Experience state of the art military and government simulators not normally seen by the public. These are the actual tools professionals in these fields use to train with. Feel the rush pilots feel as they’re soaring at hundreds of miles per hour.
And for the daredevil in you, our larger-than-life racing simulators will have you feeling like you’re ready for the circuit! The modeling and simulation industry is quickly becoming one of the most important to Central Florida and these simulators will give you an up-close look.
Experience how video game technology is being used to create better pilots, drivers, soldiers, doctors and more through hands-on experiences with cutting-edge simulators that before now have rarely been available to the public.

FIRST is a not-for-profit public organization for youth that uses robot challenges to build science and technology skills and interests. It is a character-driven program that also inspires self-confidence, leadership and life skills.
FIRST is impacting students and volunteers everywhere from the U.S. to China and even the Netherlands! In fact, more than 300,000 students will take part in FIRST events and have the opportunity to win more than $16 million in scholarships.
Students compete in one of two contests: the FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge. Competitors will raise funds, design a team brand, and build and program a robot using materials supplied to them by FIRST that will go head-to-head with other teams.
Be sure to meet these students, interact with their robots and learn how you can get involved in FIRST at Otronicon.
