Five will be on exhibit from the nearby factory, and a "very large 'Gaggle' of Seareys" is expected to arrive en masse on Thursday, March 29th at 10:00 a.m. - 20 or more from the cohesive and enthusiastic Searey community of more than 500.
Half an hour later a smaller group will overfly the Sun 'n Fun crowd.
The Searey will be on display at three locations: Booth 58, the LSA Mall and the Seaplane Pilots Association display.
I had a ball flying the amphib at Sebring 2011. It's a great way to enjoy water flying at either a kit price or, in time, prebuilt as an S-LSA.

The "production ready" version of the two-seat, LSA-legal Transition is scheduled for delivery to the first of 100 pre-order buyers by the end of this year after a long development process and ever- increasing price level - currently around $250,000.
The reconfigured and refined design, which originally had a type of canard forward of the front "bumper", touts a max speed of 115mph. "Roadable" mileage after the pushbutton transition to folded-wing land vehicle is claimed to be around 35 mpg.
I'll be visiting these folks and lots more and posting here as I'm able during the show.
