The Weekender: Sun ‘n Fun and More


Our weekly immersion into SocialFlightuncovered the month’s big Kahuna, Sun ‘n Fun, as well local activities including local FlyDays, an EAA chapter breakfast and a fish-fry and fly-in. We’re reporting this from under clear skies and great weather as the 40th annual Sun ‘n Fun fly-in, airshow, convention and celebration is going on in Lakeland, Fla. What has widely been referred to as aviation’s cabin fever cure will continue through April 6 with the Blue Angels and other high-profile airshow acts on stage. At the other end of the country, Friday, April 4 is the date for FlyDays, a gathering of those with an aviation passion at San Diego’s Gillespie Field Cafe from 4-8 p.m. for “good food, great people and World War II and antique airplanes.”

At Skyview Airport in Cheyenne, Wyo., EAA Chapter 342 will be holding a fly-in breakfast on Saturday, April 5 from 8 to 11 a.m. Finally, the Lebanon, Tenn., Rotary Club is holding a fish fry and fly-in on Saturday, April 5 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Lebanon, Tenn., Airport. In addition to the food, there will be displays of homebuilts, ultralights and vintage airplanes. Thank you to SocialFlight for compiling the “what’s-where” in aviation activities.
