August 10, 2009 (Duluth, MN) – Today, AMPT Associates announced an updated exhibitor list for FLYING Magazine’s Parade of Planes – Southeast. Liberty and Sport Cruiser are scheduled to join the field of aircraft that will be on display for the new aircraft sales event ranging from $99,000 Light Sport to $6.4M turbine aircraft.
“Consumers who attend Parade of Planes – Southeast will be able to compare a cross section of popular aircraft from Cessna, Cirrus, CubCrafters, Diamond, Embraer, Extra, Gobosh, Hawker Beechcraft, Husky, Liberty, Maule, Pilatus, Remos and Sport Cruiser,” stated Randy S. Bolinger of AMPT Associates. “Both Liberty and Sport Cruiser will represent something unique on the ramp so we’re thrilled to have them back.”
The Liberty XL2 is a fully-certified, FADEC controlled, two-seater that is the most economical certified flight trainer available. The SportCruiser is unique because it was purpose-built to be an LSA (rather than modified for the class) after the LSA rule was finalized. Thus engineers were able to take advantage of the full 1,320 pound weight restriction and build a proportionally designed aircraft.
For consumers who will be making a purchase in 2009 to take advantage of attractive tax incentives, the core Buyer’s Resources team will be on-site to answer the pre-purchase questions regarding tax, finance and insurance. Aero Credit Corporation, AirFleet Capital, Advocate Tax Consulting, and NationAir aviation insurance are an integral part of what makes Parade of Planes such an effective venue for both aircraft consumers and retailers. The Aircraft Partnership Association helps match aviators interested in sharing the total cost of aircraft ownership.
The following aircraft brands are scheduled to be at FLYING’s Parade of Planes - Southeast (actual aircraft models on display will be determined by each exhibitor):
