ORLANDO — Some Wichita exhibitors say traffic was down somewhat today at this year’s NBAA. But there were fewer tire kickers.
The ones here really want to talk, said Larry Franke, president of Avcon Industries in Newton.
In fact, three or four “really good contacts” came by Avcon’s exhibit today, Franke said.
Business is down in the general aviation business overall. So it’s natural that traffic would be down at the show, said Charles Skelton of Wichita’s Aircraft Interior Products.
“We’re looking at cautious optimism,” said Skelton, standing by carpets and other products for aircraft interiors.
