“The 2013 Expo was a great opportunity to visit with current clients -and answer insurance related questions for prospective buyers,” said Aviation Insurance Resource’s (AIR) Chris Wolbert, who attended the 9th annual Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo from January 17th to the 20th with fellow AIR employee Gregg Ellsworth. The two managed a booth (seen to the right) at the four day event, which focused on Light Sport Aircraft and the Sport Pilot Certificate, along with more than 160 other exhibitors ranging from engines and avionics to aviation accessories and other services.
The 2013 Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo saw record crowds despite the less than perfect weather.
