OCTOBER 31st – 2nd NOVEMBER 2014

The Flight Aviation Expo was held at the Palm Springs Convention Center between the 31st October and 2nd November 2014. This event was organised as a result of the AOPA not bringing back their annual event back to Palm Springs and was therefor a much smaller event. This year 22 Manufacturers and Owners were involved in the static display of aircraft with many more Pilots, Industry experts and Innovators taking part in the main hall. Many seminars and classes were also available.

One of the main attractions of events hosted at the Palm Springs Convention Center is the parade of planes through the streets as they make their way from the airport to their static display at the Convention Center.

Hundreds of people lined Alejo Road and Avenida Caballeros to watch the planes make their way to the convention center, where they remained until the Sunday and the close of the Aviation Expo when they made their way back to the Palm Springs International Airport.
