Sebring, Aero Changes Set For 2015


Visitors to the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida, coming up Jan. 14-17, will have a chance to kick the tires on some pre-owned aircraft as well as all the new models on display, show organizers have announced. The Expo has teamed up with Aviators Hot Line to promote a special area set aside on the ramp to display private used aircraft for sale. The show also will feature refurbished aircraft for sale, in partnership with Triple R Affordable Aircraft, for the first time. More details are posted at the show website. The organizers of the Aero Friedrichshafen general aviation event in Germany also have announced some expanded features for next year’s show, coming up April 15 to 18.

For the first time, Aero will feature a Pilots Competence Center, where current pilots can learn how to improve their skills and new enthusiasts can learn about flight training. The show also will expand its indoor UAS flying display, which debuted last year, and also will take it outside for the first time, to a site at Trade Fair Lake near the west entrance. Aero also announced it will be launching a new general aviation show in China next year, Oct. 28 to Nov. 1, on the fairgrounds of Zhuhai Airport. The Aero Asia show will return every two years, alternating with the business-and-military-oriented Airshow China that is also held at Zhuhai. “The two partners are confident that the Chinese exhibition and the new Aero Asia, being held in alternate years, would complement each other perfectly,” according to Aero’s news release.
