Homebuilt aircraft — and their owners and builders — will share the center stage at the first DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase, set for Nov. 3-5, 2016, at Florida’s DeLand Municipal Airport.
Nearly 100 exhibitors from Maine to Washington State and the Czech Republic to Brazil have confirmed their participation in Showcase 2016, according to organizers. They will display and demonstrate a wide variety of recreational aircraft, including fixed-wing airplanes and ultralights, gyroplanes, powered parachutes, powered paragliders, and trikes…and their associated equipment.
The three-day show will also feature educational forums, workshops, and the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Charlie Becker as a keynote speaker. In addition, demonstration flights will be available all day, every day.
A special Homebuilts Display will feature up to 50 aircraft and their owners and builders each day. Anyone wishing to participate — for one day or the whole event — is asked to complete an online Homebuilts Registration form.
The Homebuilts Display will be located adjacent to the Exhibitors Venue, providing easy access for Showcase attendees to view the various homebuilt aircraft that fly in each day.
