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.
