Postby goinaround » Sun Nov 14, 2010 3:05 pm

Why no update? Any one going? I just bought tickets to Orlando about $69 each way. Air Tan and Southwest have deals during that time. I can't wait. :lol:

I posted a thread somewhere else in the forums and probably should have put one here instead.

I will be there Saturday and Sunday and would love to meet up with some of my fellow Sport Pilot Talk comrades. I am thinking we could meet up and goinaround could buy us all lunch. Tell me you are coming too Bryan, you have plenty of time to plan for this trip.

I'd welcome any comments about attending the Sebring Expo by flying in. Is the parking area on the field within walking distance to the Expo? Does the organizer run a shuttle? How common/uncommon are fly-ins?

Many thanks,
Jack

I will be there on Thu, Fri, & Sat--hanging out at the Tecnam, and Chesapeake Sport Pilot booths.

For Jack Tyler: Yes you can fly in. Parking for transient aircraft is in front of the terminal. The EXPO is around the corner to the NW, and is within a short walking distance. Go to the expo web site for more info. Last few years the ramp was pretty full.

Karen and I are tentatively planning to fly down in our Sky Arrow (from N GA).

Depends on weather, and how Karen's mom is doing - currently in a nursing home near us and on a fairly rapid decline.

My pop in for day visits, then stay with friends at a private strip at Lake Placid, FL.

I'll update when we can start to confirm.

Not going to make it this year - recent death in the family and just need to regroup right now.

Maybe Oshkosh if things settle down.

Have fun!

Went to the show Saturday very cold and windy with overcast all day.Unfortunatly the weather doesn,t seem to want to co-operate for the LSA expo.Had some very productive conversations however.All the exhibitors where warm and friendly.Looking forward to sun n fun.

It was bad enough to be good...

Postby Jack Tyler » Sun Jan 23, 2011 4:43 pm

As frfly mentions, Saturday brought low-hanging scud, a stiff & gusty W'ly wind and so, while it wasn't a particularly enjoyable day to fly light-weight aircraft, it sure was a great day to take a demo ride on a plane one is interested in! With many of these LSA a/c, given their light weights, short-coupled designs and relatively large tail feathers, doing demo flights produced some very entertaining aerobatics during the takeoffs and landings.

FYI the RV-12 I went to see handled the conditions very well. Really nice flying plane, all around. We were impressed...

I went to the show on Sunday and have to say I was disappointed. This makes my third year of going and I personally think this was the worst showing yet. Now granted it may have been the weather, or the fact I went on the last day, but I was definitely disappointed in the displays, vendors, etc. The only shining light for me at the show was meeting Adam and the crew with First Landings. I got an opportunity to see their camera setup first hand and I must say I was VERY impressed. Keep up the good work Adam.
