Come on down!


While Sun ‘n Fun 2018 opened to a day with significant thundershowers and rain, the forecast is for better weather starting on Wednesday, and improving through the weekend. We took a walk to the middle of Homebuilt Parking before the rain came, and it is clear there is plenty of room for everyone – so come on down and join in the fun! Vendors are ready to answer your questions about the latest kits, engines, and avionics. Volunteers are doing a great job keeping things organized and clean. And with the better weather, flying should increase and the afternoon airshows will ramp up.

Let’s see if we can’t show the experimental flag and get a bunch of airplanes to fill the space!
