What People Had to Say
"The show was very well organized. There was good vendor cooperation and there was a good ambiance to the show. As exhibitors, we were treated well. Keep that up; it's very important to us."
- Kirk Kleinholz, Dynon Aircraft
"For a first-ever event, this place is awesomely organized. It's obvious that the management of it know what they are doing. The layout is great. The size of the crowd is good for visitors because they can get quality time with exhibitors. Also, the flying sessions are well organized and there's lots of demo time, which is important for aircraft sellers."
- Sebastian Heintz, President, Zenith Aircraft Company
"Well organized. Like the feel of this event. Not going to Sebring. Suggest putting posters at more airports in a larger radius. Flew into three airports days before the event and no one seemed to know about it."
- Darin Hart, Owner, Legend Club
"Very well organized. Good turnout for exhibitors. Decent crowd for a first-time event."
- Robert Goyer, editor, Plane & Pilot Magazine
"It is amazing to think that this event was put together from nothing six months ago. This is obviously not these folks' first rodeo. Very well done!"
- Sims Kline, Volunteer
"The organization of this show is great, the food is good, and we love that dogs are allowed to attend! That makes a lot of people happy. We have had a couple of very serious prospects, and that makes it all worthwhile for us."
- Amy Saunders, pilot, Evolution Trikes
"We are very happy with the people who came by our booth... they are quality prospects. While the quantity of people coming through was pretty low, the quality was high, and to us that's more important. We are planning to come back next year. I was impressed that one of our shuttle drivers was the Economic Director of the City of DeLand. That shows community commitment."
- Michele Schlitter, Marketing Agent, RANS Aircraft
"The show is organized and managed very well. Impressive to have 100 exhibitors in the first year. I'm amazed at that turnout. The volunteers have been courteous and very helpful."
