Midwest LSA Expo Has Begun: Wide Variety of Light Sport Aircraft Available, Great Deals for Customers

By Carmelo Turdo highly-anticipated 6th Annual Midwest LSA Expo is in its second day at Mount Vernon Outland Airport in central Illinois.  The Midwest LSA Expo is a very important marketplace for the light sport aircraft manufacturers to demonstrate their products for serious customers.  Chris Collins, Mount Vernon Outland Airport Manager, told The Aero Experience that the focus of the event is to place aircraft buyers and sellers in one convenient location.  Collins mentioned that aircraft suppliers and customers come from across the country and Canada to this event, further illustrating the importance of the Midwest LSA Expo to the growth of the aviation community beyond the region.  The event organizers have provided free parking, free admission, free camping, and free shuttles to local hotels to help make everyone's experience there a pleasant one.
