Indoor Ultralight and Light Plane Seminar

2011-02-23 Springfield, IL

Join me for a respite from the cold without getting on an airplane. There will be a bunch of ultralighters, some light sport aircraft folks and even some paramotor folks at the annual seminar in Springfield, IL.

Roy Beisswenger, publisher of Powered Sport Flying Magazine an host of the Powered  Sport Flying radio show will be there along with many others who have gear. Michael Mixer will have a paramotor in the expansive lobby but, alas, there's not enough room for indoor flying. That's something I'd love to do just once in my life. Anyone have any ideas?

It's a one-day deal, Saturday Feb 26, 2011, from 8am to 5pm and the price is right: free. Raffle tickets are sold to help recoup some of the expenses of putting it on.
