The crowds at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in its third day at the Sebring Regional Airport in central Florida aren’t overwhelming, but there has been an enthusiastic influx of visitors each day.

Highlights of the show have been the aerial demonstrations of LSA on display, especially with strong winds down the runway allowing for camera-ready slow passes in one direction followed by high-speed fly-bys in the other.

This year also marks the first time a sanctioned drone race is being held at an aviation event. The final race is scheduled for tomorrow, with the winner set to take home a $5,000 prize.

Around 100 exhibitors have packed the show site, which includes aircraft display areas and indoor exhibits by many of aviation's best-known brands, including Garmin, L-3 Avionics, Continental Motors, Rotax, Trade-a-Plane and many more.

The show runs through this Sunday.
