Five Light Sport Aircraft manufacturers and distributors are staging a flying show of six cities throughout Florida after the Sebring LSA Expo. We wanted to create an intimate atmosphere for purchasers to see planes without the noise of a show, said Bill Canino of Sportair USA, one of the participants. Buyers like to get up close and personal with the planes, and the people behind the planes, added Jim Julius of SportPlanes Florida.
Participants on the tour include American Legend Aircraft, Flight Design South East, RANS Aircraft, Sportair USA and SportplanesFlorida.com. Aircraft include the Legend Cub, CTLS, Sting, Jabiru, Sirius and others.
