Greetings from The Aero Experience Team

Greetings!



The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Ultralight Fly-In at Lake Sangchris Air Park Has Variety of Participants

This weekend's Midwest Ultralight/LSA Rendezvous at Tommy Georges' Lake Sangchris Air Park attracted a variety of ultralight, LSA and GA aircraft.  The lower temperature and low humidity also brought some headwinds, enabling those of us who drove in to arrive comfortably before those who flew!  Here are a few images from Saturday.  Special thanks to the Gateway Area Ultralight Association who were my hosts for the event.
