sun n fun 2010

Attended the show opening day . Good crowd at lsa mall also good showing of models throughout the show from major manufactorors.Seemed to be a lot of rated pilots looking at light sport.A major problem with some current pilots seems to be the inability to trade a ga aircraft towards a light sport.Untill the light sport dealers have an outlet for trades they are missing a part of the market.Just my thoughts.

Yep, the aviation bubble is just like he housing bubble. I don't think it's so much not being able to trade, just no one wants to accept the reality of the current value. The markup in LSA is small enough that a trade in requires being well back of wholesale to be able to floorplan (if a dealer still has a floorplan available in this economy).
