The first look at AERO Friedrichshafen is indicative of the optimism and enthusiasm of the general aviation community here. The exposition center features a remarkable design of several new, beautifully constructed hangar-like halls.
Even with the perfect Spring weather calling, this indoor show is very attractive.
Even better, the wonderful setting seems to be a good backdrop for doing business. The exhibitors I’ve spoken with are pleased with the opening day activity.
There’s an especially strong presence from the LSA community and the vendors are attracting good crowds. One manufacturer even told me he is pretty sure he has sold 2 aircraft in the first hours of the show.
