SUN n FUN Aerospace Expo

From its humble beginnings in 1974 as a fly-in for sport aviation enthusiasts, the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo has grown into one of the largest and most successful aviation events on earth. We are Florida’s largest annual convention of any kind, and each year over 200,000 visitors flock to what has become known as “Aviation’s Season Opener” or “Spring Break for Pilots.”

Pilots flying into the Expo are fascinated by the vision of hundreds of aircraft showcased in all shapes and sizes. Aircraft areas include Vintage, Homebuilt, Aerobatic, Warbird, Jet, and Light Sport. To serve all those flying in, a major trade show is part of SUN ‘n FUN. Over 500 exhibitors have an incredible lineup of products and services, hands-on workshops teach hundreds of building and maintenance skills, and dozens of forums educate pilots and maintainers about safety, new products, and an infinite number of other timely topics. Not just for pilots, SUN ‘n FUN has STEM and Career Fair activities, plus a Family Fun Zone and, of course, our world-famous daily and night airshows that feature breathtaking displays from dozens of military and civilian performers.

The SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus at SUN ‘n FUN FLY-IN, INC. is one of the most unique venues in Central Florida. Our wide-open space on over 200 acres of natural Florida setting has access to the Lakeland Linder International Airport (KLAL) and hosts the annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo in March or April. Located along the 1-4 High-Tech Corridor, only 5 miles off 1-4 (Exit 25), the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus is easily accessible to the Tampa and Orlando metro areas. In addition to our acreage, the Expo Campus has a myriad of special event spaces – from boardrooms to clubhouses, to aircraft hangars, to wide-open grassy areas - there is space to accommodate most needs. Onsite Camping (full/partial hookups and primitive) is available for your group. Major festivals, RV rallies, galas, trade shows, weddings, sporting events, including 5k races have all found their perfect home at the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus with the support of our friendly and professional Events Team. From initial planning, event execution, to a seamless move-out, we are here to turn your vision into reality, and to deliver outstanding results for our clients.

For 45 years, the leadership, staff, and volunteers of SUN ‘N FUN FLY-IN, INC., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, have produced the second-largest airshow and fly-in in North America. Each Spring, the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus hosts over 225,000 visitors from around the world for a week of aviation-related activities.

Proceeds from events held on the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus help fund the Aerospace Center for Excellence’s aerospace-based youth education programs and scholarships.
