Ready for Some SUN 'n FUN?

February 13, 2020 - The annual SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo is slightly more than six weeks away, and aviators and EAA members are making plans for the journey down to the unofficial kickoff of the flying season. SUN 'n FUN takes place March 31-April 5 at Florida's Lakeland Linder Airport (LAL) and will feature the USAF Thunderbirds.

EAA members can save on admission by using the discount code "EAA543" while purchasing online, or by showing an EAA member card at the admission gates. EAA volunteers will be at the main gate to verify memberships and assist with renewals.

SUN 'n FUN is a great time for EAA members to meet up with one another and EAA staff outside of the busy week of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. In addition to a presence at the front gate, we invite you to explore EAA programs and retail or join an educational forum at our exhibit, just south of the FAA building on the corner of Laird and SUN 'n FUN Blvd.

Check out the schedule below for more information on the awesome lineup of presenters and topics. And don't forget, from Thursday to Saturday EAA members and a guest can enjoy shade, refreshments, and a great view of the air show at the EAA Member Oasis located off the warbirds ramp. Doors are open from noon until the end of the air show. Be sure to stop by for the ice cream social held daily at 3 p.m.

The EAA staff looks forward to seeing you in sunny Lakeland, Florida!
