Oshkosh, WI – As the 2011 edition of EAA’s AirVenture fades some people are left celebrating, like the folks at Wicks Aircraft Supply. They experienced record sales in 2010 and went up another 60 percent in 2011.
While big ticket items like aircraft were not moving very quickly, Wicks saw items like Dynon Avionics’ new handheld radio flying out of the exhibit building. Sales were also brisk with the new LED technology incorporated in AeroLEDs technology. Just about anything intended for aircraft panels were hot items.
“We expanded our booth this year, increased our inventory and it sure paid off,” said Scott Wick, President of Wicks Aircraft Supply. “Buyers were homebuilders, LSA owners and GA pilots with Part 23 aircraft. There was a lot upgrading taking place.”

The competitions are open to anyone with an electric powered aircraft who has flown at least 40 hours and has an airworthiness certificate.
The low-cost aerobatic plane is the latest offering from the Sonex Aircraft, Wisconsin company.
The prize has been made possible by equal contributions from AeroLEDs, Aircraft Spruce & Specialty, Dynon Avionics, and Wicks Aircraft Supply.
