Light Sport Aircraft On Display

With two GA shows in Florida coming up back-to-back, we can only hope that the hurricane season is really over. So far, the weather is looking great for Tampa, where the three-day AOPA Expo opens today. U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta will open the show, as guest speaker for this morning's general session. Sixteen Light Sport Aircraft are on display at Peter O. Knight Airport, with demo flights available. The show also includes over 500 exhibitors, 75 technology seminars, and lots more airplanes. AVweb's Russ Niles is there, and will bring you all the news live from Florida in your next issue of AVflash, on Monday. Also on the agenda is a panel discussion on the future of GA with Dan Johnson of LSA Marketing, Alan Klapmeier of Cirrus Design, and Vern Raburn of Eclipse. If you plan to fly in to AOPA Expo, you can land at either Vandenberg, Tampa International, or Peter O. Knight. Be sure to check with AOPA to review the arrival procedures before you fly.
