09/08/04 - SPORT PILOT EXPO SITE SURVIVES HURRICANE FRANCES

Organizers of the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo report that the Sebring Regional Airport escaped the brunt of Hurricane Frances, and planning continues for the inaugural October 28-31 event in Sebring, Florida. Though the storm’s eye passed over the airport, damage was limited and should have no impact on the event.

EAA President Tom Poberezny will lead a large contingent of EAA representatives attending the Expo. Also confirmed are Sue Gardner and Marty Weaver from the FAA; Dan Schultz of ASTM International; John and Martha King of the King Schools; Phil Lockwood of Lockwood Aviation Supply; and Jimmy Zavez, John Calla, Loctite Corp.; and Larry Burke of the Light Aircraft Manufacturing Association (LAMA).

In addition, 87 exhibitors have reserved 105 exhibit spaces, which exhausts the planned outside display sites. More exhibit space is being added to help satisfy the high demand, and a limited number of inside exhibit spaces is available.

EAA members who present a current membership card are admitted for $8 per day and $25 for the full event (Thursday-Sunday). General admission per day is $10 and $30 for all four days. Children ages 12 and under will be admitted free.
