SUN 'n FUN offers family thrills in Lakeland, aviation style

LAKELAND, Fla. - It's time for the annual SUN 'n FUN event out at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport.

It sparks all levels of aviation interests from student to active "veteran" pilots, to "homebuilders" (people who design, build and fly their own airplanes!) and armchair enthusiasts, many who continue to nurture the dream to fly.

SUN 'n FUN features 500 plus exhibitors both outside on the campus and in four dedicated exhibit hangars.

Attendees have the opportunity to review and shop the latest developments in aircraft design, aircraft avionics, pilot equipment, supplies and services plus a variety of aviation oriented art work, apparel and jewelry.

The SUN 'n FUN campus showcase a world-class concentration of vintage, warbird, homebuilt, factory built, rotorcraft, ultralight, light sport, hot air balloon, aerobatic and current military aircraft that add to the memorable experiences for SUN ʼn FUN guests throughout the week.

A highlight is the popular SUN ʼn FUN daily airshow, which is known as one of the finest and largest displays of aerobatic talent in the country. This year the show will begin at 1:00 p.m. and conclude at 5:00 p.m. each day.
