The 11th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo will open one day earlier than in years past, with the event now running from Wednesday, Jan. 14, through Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015. The Expo, held on Sebring Regional Airport (SEF) in Florida, is known as the Sebring LSA Expo because it features everything related to sport aviation and LSAs.

The 10th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo — known by most as the Sebring LSA Expo — will take center stage at Florida’s Sebring Regional Airport Jan. 16-19, 2014.
It used to be that January was one of the slowest months of the year. Freezing cold in the northern states combined with short days across the northern hemisphere to produce a sluggish month for all but transport or working aircraft.

The U.S Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida, concluded at 2 p.m. Sunday with an awards ceremony and the launching of more than a dozen light-sport aircraft on a trip to the Bahamas. According to a report at EAA.org, weather for the first big airshow of the year was excellent the first day and the last day, but Friday and Saturday had temperatures as low as 41, clouds, mist, and light rain as weather to the north (which had blocked some arrivals) began to affect the Sebring area. Look for a full wrap-up of the show from General Aviation News blogger Jamie Beckett in an upcoming post.
The Sebring Regional Airport will be buzzing with activity later this week when the ninth annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo opens its four-day run, Jan. 17-20.
The holidays approach like a lumbering airliner on final, sure and certain. With its arrival, aviation in America can take stock of the year and begin the anticipation for a new season to dawn once the days begin to lengthen. Winter in many northern states is a time of reduced recreational flying activity but (speaking as one who endured many Minnesota winters before permanently flying south) the short days and cold nights help to build excitement.

Last year’s event drew more than 16,000 visitors to a trade show oriented to help buyers view all the airplanes from which they can choose. [Read more...]
