Yesterday, the 60th annual Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) International Convention & Trade Show opened its doors to the general public. During the four-day event, over 2,000 avionics manufacturers, repair stations, installers and other general aviation professionals are attending the trade show at the Ernest N.
