EAA Coordinates Forums for Upcoming Sebring LSA Expo
December 10, 2007 — EAA has again developed a full schedule of nearly three-dozen light-sport aircraft-related aviation forums for the fast-approaching U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, coming January 17-20, 2008, to Sebring Regional Airport in Florida. The forum schedule, including a number of EAA staff-led sessions, is available now at the event's website, www.sport-aviation-expo.com/workshopforums.htm.
Since the first Expo in 2004, "Sebring" has become one of the premiere sport pilot/LSA industry events in the U.S. It serves as a showcase of the latest aircraft and components from within the fastest growing segment in aviation. According to the website, a record total of nearly 140 exhibitors will be there, and aircraft on display will include fixed-wing, weight-shift trikes, powered parachutes, motor-gliders, and gyroplanes.
"This event is the trade show for the light-sport industry," explained Ron Wagner, EAA field relations' manager and a Sebring forum presenter. "The exclusive focus on sport pilot and LSA gives manufacturers and enthusiasts a chance to interact on a more intimate level."
Among the EAA-led forums will be presentations on various LSA; the sport pilot certificate; training programs and insurance; and other related topics. As in the past, EAA will provide free sport pilot student pilot certificates to EAA members, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Event gates open daily at 7:30 a.m. and exhibits open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (3 p.m. on Sunday). To learn more, visit www.sport-aviation-expo.com.
