LSA Road Show Continues in Colorado

Building on the success of the previous tours in Florida and Georgia, seven Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) manufacturers and distributors are continuing their flying roadshow in Colorado. Timed to coincide with the Colorado Pilots Association Rocky Mountain LSA expo at the Front Range Airport, the collaborators have scheduled stops in four airports within the state. “This tour has created an intimate atmosphere for purchasers to see planes, without the noise of a show,” said Bill Canino of SportairUSA, one of the participants. “We meet people who are looking to make that jump to aircraft ownership, but are unable to get to traditional aviation events,” said Dave Graham at Legend Aircraft.

The group has scheduled four stops in Colorado (listed by date, location, host):

• Thurs. May 12th Ft. Collins Loveland (KFNL)

Ft. Collins Jet Center, 970/667-2574

• Fri. May 13th Centennial Airport, Denver (KAPA)

Denver Jet Center, 303/790-4321 and Skyraider Aviation, 303/929-4265

• Sat. May 14th Front Range Airport, Denver (KFTG)

Colorado Pilots Association, 303/929-4265

• Sun. May 15th Meadow Lake Airport, Colorado Springs (KFLY)

EAA Chapter 72, 719/351-1640

Each venue will open to the public at 10:00 a.m. The roadshow concludes with a Q&A session with a panel of experts at 6:00 p.m. each day.
