From April 1-6, 2014, consider Lakeland, FL as your destination. Aviators view the 39th Annual SUN ‘n FUN FLY-In & Expo as their first chance in the season to purchase aircraft and equipment. Aviation enthusiasts know it is the 2nd largest airshow in the world and Florida’s largest convention. More than 200,000 people converge in Polk County to see an airshow, visit 500 exhibits, earn education credits at workshops and forums, introduce children to the world of aviation and view more than 4,500 aircraft from homebuilts to warbirds on 2,200 acres. Two evening air shows offer spectators an illuminated sky set to music and narration. Daily airshows on the SUN ‘n FUN grounds, evening programs and entertainment, food vendors, airplane rides, youth programming and a Seaplane event at Fantasy of Flight also attract foreign visitors and media to the annual event. Visit sun-n-fun.org for event schedules and information.
“After a year of sequestration and no military participation at airshows, SUN ’n FUN is honored to host the first appearance of the Blue Angels in the southeast in 2014,” said SUN ’n FUN President & CEO John R. “Lites” Leenhouts. “It is exciting for us to offer our guests the stellar precision that represents the piloting skills of all naval aviators.”
