New LSA Engines, Seminars And Events


Next week’s U.S. Sport Aviation Expo aims not just to show off the LSA products but to introduce the masses to the whole concept of sport flying and get them up in the air for a free demo flight. Entrance fees are low, with $40 buying a four-day pass including parking. Fly-ins are welcome, and camping is just $5 a day. Besides lots of LSAs to look at and try out, UL Power-Aero from Belgium and Vulcan both will be introducing new engines at the show, Wood said. EAA staffers provide free seminars about how to choose the right LSA and how to earn a sport pilot certificate. Current aviators can also learn about becoming an LSA instructor or repair technician. And if you’ve always wondered what it’s like to fly a trike, gyro, powered parachute or LSA, the Sebring expo offers a chance to try them all.
