DeLand Showcase 2017 Remains True to Mission, Vision

EAA Workshops Offered On-Site, Sponsored By Aircraft Spruce

The 2nd annual DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase will take place November 2-4, 2017 and will mimic the inaugural show in design, layout, daily schedule, and hospitality. But most important, the mission and vision will remain the same: Committed to Sport Aviation. Held at DeLand (Florida) Municipal Airport (KDED), it’s the best sport aviation event for getting up close and personal with manufacturers and distributors of all things related to flying for fun.

After a successful inaugural event last fall, the Sport Aviation Showcase team is poised to make this year’s event even more valuable for exhibitors and visitors alike. “As we work to make Showcase 2017 even better, we will not lose sight of our focus to keep the DeLand Showcase All Sport Aviation - All In One Place,” said DeLand Sport Aviation Administrator Jana Filip, noting this is the only show of its’ kind in the U.S., with every component of the show targeted towards the advancement of the sport aviation community.
With an increased exhibitor field, expanded hands-on workshops, and an enhanced and targeted comprehensive marketing initiative, the Showcase is quickly becoming identified by the recreational and sport aviation communities as their don’t miss event.

Representing the best in sport aircraft, engines, fuel, accessories, and education, the full field of exhibitors makes the 2017 DeLand Showcase the perfect place for sport aviation pilots and would-be pilots to shop, compare, and take advantage of the demonstration flights all day-every day.

“The Showcase is an ideal environment for sport aviation enthusiasts to shop and learn more about their aviation interests," Filip said. "The format of our show makes it the best venue for buyers and sellers to have quality time together, and we make it easy for interested buyers to take those important demo flights."

“At Showcase 2017, our focus is to help our visitors get more involved with flying for fun.  There are hands-on workshops for builders (and soon-to-be builders) to learn new skills as well as live product demonstrations, educational and informational forums. New this year to Showcase, the EAA Workshops will conduct composite and sheet metal sessions, sponsored by Aircraft Spruce, offering great hands-on experience. Don’t come to the Showcase and just walk around, get hands-on, get involved,” Filip said.

Showcase Flights, conducted at noon each day, allow buyers to observe the flying characteristics of a wide variety of aircraft, with each aircraft company given their “moment to shine”. The Showcase Flights will again be narrated by the “Voice of the Showcase”, Commentator Michael McClellan, one of the most knowledgeable individuals of sport aircraft.

New outdoor Education Exhibits have been created at the southeast corner of the Showcase site, near the Main Entrance. Anchored by Embry-Riddle Aeronautic University, and joined by the Lakeland Aero Club, Eagles Nest Projects, and the Academy of Aviation flight training, there is plenty to attract the next generation of aviators. And all students receive complimentary admission on Saturday, November 4th.

All Exhibits will be open from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm daily. This year’s Indoor Exhibitors Tent will feature an enhanced Presentation Stage. There will be ongoing product presentations along with interactive games, interviews, contests, and product giveaways.

On-site food and beverage concessions will be centrally located near the Show Center Tent, featuring live music by the Flying Musicians Association, along with interviews and presentations daily throughout the show. Local EAA Chapter 635 said “yes” to your requests and will be serving their famous pancake breakfast all three days at Showcase 2017.
