Orlando, The Capital of Simulation and Training

Orlando has a lot more to offer than theme parks!

With major players like Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Cubic, Bohemia and the National Center for Simulation all located within 20 miles from each other, it’s no wonder Orlando is considered the Capital for Simulation and Training in the world.
