The DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase is just 7 short days away.
The Showcase Field is being prepped, booths striped, grass mowed. Tents, fencing, and signage are going up. Soon the Showcase Field will be alive with the arrival of exhibitors, media, food vendors, volunteers, and dignitaries.
On November 2nd, 3rd, and 4th the skies above the DeLand Municipal Airport will be filled with color as over 100 recreational aircraft will fly non-stop demonstration flights while 100’s of skydivers will continue their daily routine out of Skydive DeLand.
Here are some of the highlights you will experience at the 2017 DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase at the DeLand Municipal Airport on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 2 through 4.
In addition to the EAA hands-on Workshops, over 100 aircraft and aviation-related exhibitors will display their wares on the Showcase Field. Demo flights take place all day, every day with over 1,000 operations each day at the debut event last year. Showcase Flights, held at 12n each day will give each aircraft their “time to shine” on the runway and in the air. The Flying Musicians entertain daily in the Show Center Tent from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and again from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm. One can camp Under the Wing right on the Showcase Field. And a variety of handpicked Food Vendors are sure to not disappoint.
