A drone demo space will be among the new attractions at this year’s U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida. The show, which runs Jan. 20-23, will include a demo and display area in Hangar 60. Exhibitors will line the space around a 24-foot-high flight cage, where visitors can view daily demonstrations and try their hand at flying unmanned aerial vehicles. On Saturday, the drone displays will end the week with a “UAV Pizza Delivery” contest.

The twelfth annual expo also will feature more than 140 exhibitors and, for a second year, a sales lot where owners can display their aircraft to potential buyers. Other offerings at the event will focus on getting pilots and future pilots in the air. AOPA’s Rusty Pilot seminars will be held, along with dozens of educational forums and showings of the film Flying Again, produced by MzeroA.com. Students accompanied by an adult will get free admission to the show on Saturday. Keynote speakers will be Paul Dye, editor of Kitplanes magazine, and master aircraft mechanic Mike Busch.
