Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo Update

Hear direct from Sam Aircraft designer, Thierry Zibi

Dan Johnson interviews Thierry Zibi about his SAM experimental, amateurbuilt, light sport aircraft during the 2013 U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, Sebring Regional Airport Sebring Florida.

Looks like a Yak; flies like a Light-Sport. In this video we speak to Thierry Zibi of Canada who has been working on this design for more than five years. At previous Sebring events he had a booth and collected design input but at the 2013 event, he shows a full-size aircraft. A unique all-metal creation that is unique in its appearance, we asked some of the questions you might have.

This event, with its focus on Sport Aircraft and the Sport Pilot Certificate, continues to grow in importance and in attendance with a great group of exhibitors/sponsors, media, and concessionaires. These associates travel to Sebring from nearly forty states and several foreign countries. Attendees come to Sebring to see, try, fly and, in some cases, buy a new plane and all the necessary gear for both plane and pilot. Exhibitors include dealers, manufacturers, and engineers of aircraft, avionics, electronics, and pilot supplies in addition to training systems, aircraft insurance, and financial institutions. LSA (Light Sport Aircraft) include Fixed-Wing Airplanes, Trikes, Powered Parachutes, Gliders, and Gyroplanes as well as Floatplanes and Amphibians.

The U.S. Sport Aviation Expo has outside and inside displays in addition to food concessionaires. Special events including an exhibitor/sponsor reception, aircraft auction, food & wine tastings, seaplane base, twilight air shows,an aircraft auction and a volunteer recognition dinner are scheduled. Look for more events to be announced as they are arranged.
