Sebring LSA Show, Skiplanes, Launch The Year


For those pilots ready for a break from winter, the Sebring LSA Expo is coming up, and for those who prefer to celebrate the snow, EAA invites skiplane pilots to converge at Oshkosh, Wis. The sixth annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo runs Jan. 20-23 at the Sebring Regional Airport in central Florida. The event provides an opportunity for pilots and enthusiasts to learn about the sport pilot certificate and sample the wide range of LSA aircraft that are available. The show features exhibits, workshops, demo flights and forums. EAA’s skiplane fly-in is set for Jan. 22 at the Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh, with at least 25 aircraft expected to attend. The fly-in is free and open to the public.

Pilots who want to participate in the skiplane event must contact EAA in advance for approval and flight briefings. Contact Sean Elliot in EAA Aircraft Operations by e-mail or call 920-426-4886. Pilots who prefer to head for the Florida sunshine can find details about the Sebring event at the LSA Expo website. General admission to the show is $10 per day or $30 for a four-day pass. AVweb staffers will be attending the Sebring show, so watch for reports, podcasts and video from the event.
