The U.S. Sport Aviation Expo is excited to announce that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) … aka drones … will be on display at Expo 2016. The drones will be exhibited and demonstrated inside Hangar 60 in an area designated as the “Drone Home.”
Exhibits inside the hangar will flank a flight demonstration cage approximately 24 feet wide by 48 feet long by 24 feet high. Bleachers will provide an observation area for the general public.
Narrated flight demonstrations will be held twice daily, at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., with open flying available throughout the remainder of the show hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The drone display will culminate with a UAV Pizza Delivery competition on Saturday, January 23, beginning at 3:00 p.m.
A special focus for Expo 2016 involves encouraging young people to participate in aviation. To that end, students (accompanied by an adult) will be allowed free admission to the Expo on Saturday, January 23.
The historic Sebring Regional Airport served as a B-17 pilot training base during World War II, with Hangar 60 operating as a maintenance hangar for the training aircraft stationed on the base. The Expo staff is excited to introduce the latest in drone technology to its visitors in this historic building, providing the proper perspective of how drones will be used in the future to improve industry, agriculture, and other aspects of our lives … as well as to provide a safe and affordable way to enjoy the marvels of flight.
