Retired astronaut Story Musgrave, former SR-71 pilot USAF Col. Richard Graham (Ret.), and AOPA feature writer Dave Hirschman are this year’s keynote speakers for the 11th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, Jan. 14-17, on Sebring Regional Airport (SEF).
Let’s be direct and simply pronounce it a success. It only took a decade of hard work.

When Mike Willingham took over management of the airport well over a decade ago, I recall a slightly shabby, eerily quiet airport that only seemed to bloom once a year during the 62-year-old “12 Hours of Sebring” race.
In just three months, the 11th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo will take aviation’s center stage, opening on Wednesday, Jan. 14, and closing on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015.

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.
