The DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase is an annual event designed to promote and support recreational flying, highlight the latest in sport aviation products and provide buyers and sellers with opportunities to connect. The annual Showcase is held at the DeLand Municipal Airport (KDED) in DeLand Florida. The Showcase welcomes all aviation enthusiasts interested in affordable recreational flying, offering a special emphasis on all things related to flying for fun.
The DeLand Sport Aviation Village will be a premier location for recreational aircraft manufacturers, dealers and owners with support for homebuilts and light-sport aircraft.
Already a major commerce center for the parachute industry and home to some of the world’s largest producers of sport parachutes, DeLand Municipal Airport will create a similar center for recreational aircraft manufacturers, dealers, and owners. Phase One construction of the Sport Aviation Village began with a groundbreaking ceremony just prior to the 2017 Showcase. Ground clearing is underway and the infrastructure bid has been awarded. Future occupants will begin building hangars this spring.
