January 16, 2014 - The 10th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo kicked off this morning on Sebring Regional Airport (SEB) in Sebring, Florida, under a sunny albeit slightly chilly sky. More than 120 exhibitors will be displaying aircraft and aviation equipment and supplies throughout the weekend. The Expo runs through Sunday afternoon, with exhibits opening at 9 a.m. each day.
This year Expo organizers have extended a special invitation to homebuilt aircraft owners and pilots to join the event and display their aircraft. Homebuilders can reserve a parking space for their aircraft as well as a space to camp under their wing by contacting the Sebring Regional Airport. Call 863-655-6455 for more information.
Aircraft manufacturers will showcase their aircraft beginning at 10:30 each morning and again at 2:30 each afternoon with individual flybys of aircraft. Anyone interested in purchasing an aircraft also may arrange for demonstration flights throughout the weekend.
A couple of new aircraft have already appeared on site. Chip Erwin's AeroMaine LSA flew its new Zigolo ultralight motorglider into the show Wednesday afternoon, and Florida Light Sport Aviation has its newly minted Super Petrel LS amphibious special light-sport aircraft on display.
Those two aircraft bookend the wide variety of aircraft on display at this year's Expo. Trikes, powered parachutes, autogyros, the Maverick flying car, and a wide range of fixed-wing aircraft are also present. If you're interested in a light aircraft, the Sebring Expo is the place to be this weekend.
