Association of Flight Simulator Builders and Instructors. Behind the concept of the Association is a way to advocate for flight simulation’s impact in the world of flying. Although many are joining the flight simulation community because it’s technically challenging and entertaining, there is also great value in simulation for training, research, and other fields. These are all benefiting from the effort of people just like our members, constantly devising new ways to render simulation more engaging and realistic or just learning the basics. These efforts can be leveraged more effectively by the Association to promote a more recognizable ecosystem. AFSBI proposes collaboration and representation as important themes of its work.
