Pilot Shop expands Sun ‘n Fun presence
Sporty’s expanded presence at Sun ‘n Fun continues in 2015, with its exhibit space located in outdoor space N100 in the area north of the main exhibit hangars. Sporty’s tent provides a shopping atmosphere with hundreds of products that can be touched and tried. This year, more product experts will be on hand to provide additional hands-on demonstrations. It’s also the top destination for student pilots, with multiple flight instructors on hand to discuss flight training.
Similar to its presence at EAA AirVenture, Sporty’s on-site 1,200 square foot display includes a headset demo station where customers can try on a wide range of headsets, side by side, with ease. Also available will be a large assortment of cockpit video cameras, GPSs, Flight Gear bags, RAM mounts, radios and more.
“Far from being a static display, Sporty’s tent is an interactive experience,” says Sporty’s Pilot Shop Vice President John Zimmerman. “We’ll have product-specific experts on hand to talk about dozens of products.”
Sporty’s Sun ‘n Fun Tent will have experts available to guide new and experienced users of iPads in their flying. New apps and the latest iPad accessories can be tested, including the award-winning Stratus ADS-B receiver. Of course, learn-to-fly products, Sporty’s Complete Courses and Sporty’s flight instructors will be on hand to field any questions about flight training and discuss opportunities for flying at Sporty’s.
“Come by to see the show specials we have – great deals on products that you won’t get anywhere but at Sun ‘n Fun,” adds Zimmerman.
Sporty’s Forums, Too
Whether you’ve been flying with an iPad for years or just contemplating the change, Sporty’s has a useful seminar for you. Zimmerman and Sporty’s Vice President Bret Koebbe will present three iPad flying forums during Sun ‘n Fun. “Advanced iPad Flying” will be presented by John Zimmerman on Tuesday, April 21 at 11:00 a.m., in the AOPA Tent and on Thursday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. in Room #1, Bret Koebbe will host a seminar on getting started with the iPad, also on Thursday, at 9:00 a.m., also in Room #1. An additional forum, “ADS-B Solutions in the Cockpit” is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on Friday, April 24, presented by John Zimmerman.
“With the winter we’ve had, ‘Spring Break for Pilots’ can’t come soon enough,” says Zimmerman. “We look forward to complaining about the heat and meeting and greeting our customers.”
