Sun ‘n Fun 2012

by on Apr.16, 2012, under Flying

Harold Yanof­sky and I flew to Plant City Flori­da to attend Sun ‘n Fun held in near by Lake­land March 27. We had a great flight down, land­ed, tied down and were at the event in time for lunch. Sun ‘n Fun includes loads of sta­t­ic dis­plays by all the GA air­craft man­u­fac­tures, war bird, vin­tage, exper­i­men­tal and just about any­thing that fly­’s. In addi­tion there are four huge build­ings hous­ing dis­plays of every­thing you can imag­ine that is asso­ci­at­ed with air­craft own­er­ship. It’s an avi­a­tion enthu­si­asts paradise.

We only had Tues­day after­noon and Wednes­day morn­ing so we did a quick tour of the whole area, took in the air­show Tues­day evening and then focused on areas of spe­cif­ic inter­est. We attend­ed the Avi­dyne cus­tomer appre­ci­a­tion cook­out, to get the lat­est from my avion­ics sup­pli­er. Harold was inter­est­ed in check­ing out light sports, so we spent con­sid­er­able time there. We both enjoyed the war birds as well as the vin­tage air­craft. By Wednes­day we had done a pret­ty good job of cov­er­ing the bases we set out to cov­er and head­ed back to the air­port. We plowed through lots of build ups going home, but made it back in around two hours. Over­all it was a intense avi­a­tion expe­ri­ence rub­bing shoul­ders with lots of oth­er peo­ple that auto­mat­i­cal­ly look up when some­thing flies over.
