Pilots and aircraft operators considering an airplane purchase will have an opportunity this week to experience first-hand a large gathering of new airplane manufacturers and vendors at the TAC Air FBO at the Centennial Airport (KAPA) in Englewood, Colorado, located in the southeastern corner of the Denver metropolitan area.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27. Aircraft manufacturers such as Textron Aviation, Piper, Quest, Honda Aircraft, Pilatus, CubCrafters and more, will be on hand to show off their airplanes. Visitors will be able to get detailed information and take a closer look at two-seat backcountry taildraggers and other piston-powered airplanes, as well as turboprops and light business jets.

In addition to learning more about the airplanes, attendees can educate themselves about aircraft insurance, financing, tax concerns and more, during an ownership conference on Friday at 1 pm. Entrance to the U.S. Aircraft Expo is free, but to help the organizers get an idea of how many people will attend, visitors are encouraged to register here.

There are six additional U.S. Aircraft Expos scheduled this year. The next event will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, on May 16 and 17; followed by White Plains, New York on May 31 and June 1; Carlsbad, California, on July 12 and 13; Seattle on August 23 and 24; Orange County, California, on September 20 and 21 and, finally, Scottsdale, Arizona on November 8 and 9.
