Aviation expo seeks volunteers

SEBRING -Preparations for the 10th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, set from Jan. 16-19, are swinging into high gear, and the management team is looking for local volunteers to assist them before and during the event, held annually at the Sebring Regional Airport.

"We welcomed 17,500 people from throughout the world to our four-day event this past January," said Expo Director Jana Filip, "and there's a myriad of jobs that we need help with. Specifically, we have needs in the areas of admissions, aircraft parking, taxiway attendants, shuttle drivers, and information booth. "

Local volunteers are a "key" component of the expo's success, Filip added. "Volunteering at the expo is a great way to meet new friends and learn more about aviation."

All volunteers receive a complimentary four-day event and parking pass.

The Sebring expo is the largest event in the world dedicated to sport aviation, a news release adds.
