The Fly-in and Expo
After Oshkosh, Sun ‘n Fun is America’s second biggest aviation event. It is often preferred to Oshkosh as it is a more relaxed, less commercialised and has a good EAA feel to it.
The show attracts over 500 exhibitors , housed in 4 large exhibition halls and on outdoor stands on the field.
The event features daily air shows, featuring both military and civilian aircraft, a busy ultralight field and over 4 500 aircraft on the field. The Florida Air Museum is on the grounds and features one-of-a-kind designs, classics, ultra-lights, antiques and war-birds.
Workshops and Forums
A major feature of Sun ‘n Fun are the numerous hands-on work shops and forums held on the airfield during the event Forums are scheduled in the mornings prior to the daily air show. Over 250 forums are presented ranging in topics from international flying to sheet metal construction and fabric covering.
Workshops run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily and cover subjects such as composite construction, sheet metal techniques and avionics and electrical.
All forums and workshops are free and are held right on the airfield!
Couple this with the fly-market and you have a great place for any home builder to be!
