Midwest LSA Expo Features Wide Variety of Light Sport Aircraft Options

By Carmelo Turdo
The 4th Annual Plane & Pilot Midwest LSA Expo, held at Mount Vernon Outland Airport this past weekend, provided a great variety of Light Sport aircraft options for novice and veteran aviators and enthusiasts alike.  Light Sport has opened up many opportunities for (more) affordable aircraft ownership and pilot eligibility without the stringent medical standards required of other aircraft categories.  It is gratifying to see dedicated LSA manufacturers taking the lead in offering their products head-to-head in one marketplace.  Here is a survey of the LSA Expo, and future posts will feature each major aircraft manufacturer.  Special thanks to Mount Vernon Outland Airport Manager Chris Collins for his hospitality and assistance in covering this year's Expo.
