Idaho-based Kitfox Aircraft will be not exhibiting at this week’s U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida, commonly known as the Sebring LSA Expo.
The decision not the attend the show was a tough one, according to John McBean, Kitfox president.
“Our decision to not attended the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo was a tough one, but driven by our desire to deliver the best customer service possible,” he said. “This has been a valuable show for us in the past, but our backlog of orders and the fact that our small, dedicated team of professionals hand crafts each Kitfox S-LSA and Kitfox kit, would have diminished manpower just as our product back order has been increasing.”
“Kitfox has been attending this great event for many years and enjoyed some terrific island hopping in the Bahamas as a reward for those working the show,” he continued. “We will really miss the fun of greeting folks and getting away from the Idaho winter, but meeting our delivery commitments comes first.”
He noted that one Sebring tradition will continue: The company’s show special.
“Kitfox has rolled the cost savings by not attending Sebring into some very attractive packages,” he said, noting the details can be obtained by calling the company or visiting its website. “They include reimbursement credits to visit our expanded plant in Idaho (like a mini vacation, with flying thrown in) and free options,” he said.
