Unmanned aerial systems (UAS), also known as drones and remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) will be on display at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, Jan. 20-23, in Sebring, Florida.
The drones will be exhibited and demonstrated inside Hangar 60 in an area designated as the “Drone Home.”
Exhibits inside the hangar will flank a flight demonstration cage approximately 24 feet wide by 48 feet long by 24 feet high. Bleachers will provide an observation area for the general public.
Narrated flight demonstrations will be held twice daily, at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., with open flying available throughout the remainder of the show hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The drone display will culminate with a pizza delivery competition on, Jan. 23, beginning at 3 p.m.
A special focus for Expo 2016 involves encouraging young people to participate in aviation. To that end, students (accompanied by an adult) will be allowed free admission to the Expo on Saturday, Jan. 23.
