If you can't be in sunny Florida this week for Sun 'n Fun, the first big aviation event of the season, then tune in to your inbox each day for a full report from AVweb. We'll be bringing you video, podcasts, photos, and news from the field each day with a close-up look at all the latest airplane models and engines, avionics upgrades, an update on the status of the 51-percent rule, and lots of other news from the GA world. Cirrus, Piper, and Honda will be here on opening day with news updates on their companies, and throughout the week we'll be hearing from big players in sport aircraft such as Cessna, Maule, CubCrafters, Flight Design, and lots more.

We'll be out on the field every day checking out the 500 commercial exhibitors and 5,000 aircraft on the grounds, asking questions and looking for news. In the evening, we'll cover some big events from the aviation film world, including a showing of a documentary about wildlife pilots in Africa and sneak previews of some new films in the works. AOPA's new president, Craig Fuller, will have a chance to meet plenty of aviation folks as he makes a presentation here on Thursday night. A line-up of the world's best airshow performers, including Patty Wagstaff, Sean D. Tucker, Mike Goulian, Bill Stein, and more, will fly every afternoon. We'll also visit Thursday's Splash-In event at Fantasy of Flight, for a look at the world of seaplanes and amphibious aircraft.
