July 9, 2014- Sporty's welcomes showgoers to its big tent
Sporty's will provide a shopping experience for showgoers who enter Sporty's big tent. Even larger than last year, Sporty's will show pilots what's new and what they need now in a 16,000-square foot display.
"Sporty's has relocated its pilot shop to Oshkosh for the week," says Sporty's Vice President John Zimmerman. "We want showgoers to get up close, try out, hold, and examine the array of products we have."
In addition to some exciting new products on display, the interactive pilot shop will have a headset demo station where pilots can compare comfort and fit of a variety of headsets side by side. Another area is set aside to demonstrate cockpit video cameras from GoPro and Garmin. Book signings will take place, and Sporty's staff, including flight instructors, will be on hand to demonstrate the Stratus ADS-B receiver, new online training courses and apps, and help customers make just the right purchase.
For those interested in services at Sporty's Flight Center at Clermont County Airport in Cincinnati, representatives will also be on hand from Sporty's Flight School, Sporty's Cincinnati Avionics and Sandy's Airpark at Sporty's.
Sporty's tent is located in #260 outside of Exhibit Hangar B.

Now in its 52nd year, Sporty's has grown from a one-man operation launched by Hal Shevers to the world's largest pilot shop and an iconic general aviation brand. Sporty's operations extend to airport management, avionics installation and repair, aircraft maintenance, a residential airport community, new aircraft sales and flight training, including for the University of Cincinnati's professional pilot program. Located at Clermont County/Sporty's Airport (I69), Sporty's is philanthropically dedicated to expanding the general aviation community with both pilots and skilled technicians.
