Sebring reports record attendance

Organizers of the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo held in Sebring, Florida, Jan. 19-22, report record attendance for the show, no doubt helped by sunny skies and warm weather. “For two hours on Saturday, Sebring Regional Airport was the busiest airport in the country,” organizers said.

Organizers quote Bert Simpson, FAA Staff Manager, North Florida District: “There were 1,256 operations on Saturday and 1,091 operations on Friday. Total operations on Friday and Saturday were greater than any airport in the state of Florida. Over 200 operations took place in the first two hours on Saturday alone. That’s the same as Atlanta Hartsfield or Chicago O’ Hare.”

We’ll have full coverage of the show in posts throughout the week and in our next print issue.
