The fifth annual DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase (DSAS) has been postponed until Nov. 2021. The event had already been moved on the calendar from Nov. 2020 to Jan. 2021.
“It’s been heartbreaking,” notes DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase Boss, Jana Filip. “We gave it every chance to happen, but conditions simply will not allow the proper measure of safety at this time… or in the near future.”
Specific dates have not be announced.
Filip cited Florida’s COVID-19 numbers continue to rise, limitations on national travel and severe limitations on international travel, as well as potential sponsor companies with their own travel bans, as parts of the reasoning for delaying they show.
All is not lost though. DeLand Airport will host a one-day fly-in/drive-in event on January 31, 2021. Co-sponsored by automaker Tesla, anyone who shows up at the DeLand Airport Management Center can take a test drive in a new Tesla. DeLand’s EAA Chapter 635 will, for January, move their monthly Pancake Breakfast to the Airport Management Center which allows for seating outside.
