Aviation leaders from flight schools and aeronautical universities converged in San Diego in late September 2023 for the inaugural Envision Flight Edu-Con symposium, hosted by King Schools.

The event, which took place at Coast Air Center at Montgomery Field (KMYF), provided a platform for aviation educators and professionals nationwide to exchange ideas, share experiences, and delve into the world of aviation teaching and training, said Brian Hough, King School’s Senior VP of Business Development and Sales, and the driving force behind the event.
