Thank you to SC Aviation Safety Council for lining up the speakers for the 2016 Expo.  

The Southeast Aviation Expo provides pilots from around the southern region a showcase of the latest products on the market as well as offer education on the products being marketed. The event is always open to anyone interested in aviation. Companies that sell aviation products as well as aviation services are invited to exhibit at the show. 

The Southeast Aviation Expo provides the only pilot focused trade show in South Carolina on an annual basis. Our Association’s goals remain focused on events such as this in order to reach out to all pilots in South Carolina and neighboring states in an effort to provide them with pilot education and a venue that offers the opportunity to see what products and services are available. The South Carolina Aviation Association is excited to partner again with the Greenwood County Airport and their Greenwood Aviation Expo  in producing these expo events.

Here is what some of our exhibitors had to say about the 2015 event:
