The fourth of six Sport Pilot Tour “test” events proved the idea has great appeal as a means to reveal all the new Light-Sport Aircraft and to educate those who attend about FAA’s newest rule. The Dallas, Texas Sport Pilot Tour concluded with 11 models represented. Crowds were the strongest yet with 750 people attending; these are intended as focused, small-venue marketing efforts that only show LSA and offer expert forums on the topic. EAA is solidly behind the events using their national clout plus local EAA chapters in nearly every corner of the country. Many demo flights were taken, even expanding into Sunday following the Saturday event. All Sport Pilot Tours are free to visitors. The next one, scheduled for December 3rd in Camarillo, California (near Ventura) promises to be the biggest yet. “Join us,” says EAA and many aircraft exhibitors. “C’mon out and see the newest airplanes!”
