Sebring is off and flying… well, like a homesick angel! It appears the sixth running of the show is as strong as it’s ever been. Tim Casey — head guru of Garmin‘s division for aviation portables plus avionics and radios used in nearly every LSA on the market — told me this evening, “I think traffic is nearly double last year [a record year for Sebring]. We completely ran out of literature on the second day!” The giant producer reported solid sales of equipment including their lovely new touchscreen Aera and their complete info glass screen package, dubbed the G3X. *** My pal, Jim Lawrence has been pumping out the blogs as you’ve seen right here (does this guy ever sleep?!) and more will come. In addition, my video partner, UltralightNews, has been working both of us hard to build up a flock of cool video clips. See the highlights here with a coming quick-take tour of the entire show grounds (see below)… followed in the weeks ahead by our continuing review of every Light-Sport Aircraft on the market. Thanks to UltralightNews’s prodigious video production capability, we are now about half-way through the 105 models of SLSA on the market. We even got Rose Pelton to stand for an interview of her very own Skycatcher. Rose is Cessna CEO Jack Pelton’s lovely wife and, yes, the first Skycatcher went to her so she can pursue her Private Pilot license. *** We’ll have LOTS more to come; click back here often to see all the latest and greatest in the LSA world. [UPDATE 1/25/10: Race around Sebring 2010 with UltralightNews and me as we give you a quick tour of many aircraft displayed at the just-concluded Sebring LSA Expo event. We provide a brief description and a few facts about each aircraft plus their web address for fuller details. It’s fun and fast… Quick Tour Part 1 or Quick Tour Part 2.]
