Midwest LSA Expo Pictorial Review: Saturday Brings Light Sport Aircraft Customers and the Public to Mount Vernon Outland Airport

By Carmelo Turdo highly-anticipated 6th Annual Midwest LSA Expo came to a close on Saturday 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.
