Wow, off to another KTAI trade show… Having gone to the one in Primm last year, I was really looking forward to spending some time in sunny Florida!

Knowing full well that things would be slow with all of the late night socials last night, we slept in and arrived at the show around 10am… This gave me an opportunity to speak to a few of the exhibitors I missed over the last few days. Flexifoil International has four brand new traction kites […]
