Sebring Ends U.S. Sport Aviation Expo


The January 2019 U.S. Sport Aviation Expo was the last to be hosted by Sebring Regional Airport (SEF), according to an announcement made by expo organizers on Thursday. The annual expo, which was held in Sebring, Florida, first took place in 2004. According to the event website, over 100 aircraft were on display at the expo in 2018 while just over 50 were exhibited this year.

“Sebring Regional Airport will continue to vigorously support existing aviation-related tenants with a focus on growth and vibrancy of our region.” the organization said. “Commitment to all segments of aviation has always been a cornerstone that will continue to be a core value.” The statement also thanked the exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers and participants who attended and assisted with the expo for the past 15 years. The airport says it will focus on “the development of new programs in emerging aviation areas including manned, optionally manned and unmanned systems.”
