Drone Indoor Display and Demonstration: Expo 2017

The U.S. Sport Aviation Expo debuted unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs… aka drones) at its 2016 show. The drones were displayed and demonstrated inside Hangar 60 on the Expo show site in an area designated as the “Drone Home.”  This year Sebring Expo has upped the ante. AirOps Inc. and CineVista Media have joined up with Sebring to facilitate the Drone exhibits and races. For 2017, we’re moving to hanger 44 which is closer to the action. We’ve added the FIRST known large scale MultiGP sanctioned Drone Race at an aviation event. We have multiplied the vendor area by over 10 times the space from last year…and the order for good weather has been placed!

Exhibits inside the hangar will flank an indoor flight demonstration cage approximately 60 feet wide by 60 feet long by 30 feet high. The 100,000 square foot racing area is a spectacular addition for drone enthusiasts.

$20,000 Total Cash and Prize Purse
The race will be hosted by Urban Drones, sanctioned by MultiGP, directed by Joe Scully, broadcasted by FPVLive.tv and raced among the top pilots in the world. The grand prize is $10,000 and total cash and prize purse are estimated at over $20,000. Racing practice rounds will start on Thursday; qualifiers will be on Friday, and Finals on Saturday.

The Drone Race will feature Hobbico’s RISE Vusion Extreme FPV Race Pack. The race runs in conjunction with the first ever MultiGP sanctioned drone race at an aviation event. The top FPV pilots from the main race will qualify to compete for the Hobbico-sponsored $5,000 prize purse on Saturday, January 28th.

Flights Demos Daily
Daily flight demonstrations will take place indoors at 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and hands on “Fly-A-Drone” workshops will be on the hour, every hour. Expo will be demonstrating both the professional, and recreational sides of the drone world. Drone experts from all over the U.S. will be presenting forums on many aspects of drone ownership, Part 107, 333, 336 safe effective operations, and business management.
