The EAA Sport Pilot Tour that started last year will continue this fall, Dan Johnson told AVweb at AirVenture on Saturday. "We'll have our second Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Fla., October 27-30, and we'll have a static display at AOPA Expo [Nov. 3-5 in Tampa]," he said. In addition, the tour will visit at least three other sites, yet to be determined, and Johnson hopes to schedule up to a dozen events over the winter months. The tour brings sport planes to airports around the country, where the curious can learn about them and get demo flights. The tour also distributes information about how to get certified as a sport pilot. Other highlights of each event include sport pilot forums, education for flight instructors, plus an FAA "Wings" safety program related to light-sport aviation.
