Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


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!

The highly-anticipated 2017 Midwest LSA Expo is in its third 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.  The focus of the event is to place aircraft buyers and sellers in one convenient location.  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 established an excellent reputation for making everyone's experience during the event a pleasant one.

The Aero Experience team was again at Mount Vernon Outland Airport to report on this great Midwest Aviation event and show the various Light Sport Aircraft represented Thursday and Friday.  We will feature a brief survey here of those aircraft on exhibit, and we will post several stories this week to present a more in-depth look at each manufacturer's aircraft types.  Once again, we thank Airport Manager Chris Collins, his staff and event volunteers for their hospitality and assistance in producing our 2017 coverage.
