I for one can't wait for Sun N Fun. If you haven't been to one of the greatest airshows and flying events in the country you are missing out.
So what are you waiting for? Get the map out, reserve a camp site or room and start practicing the flight to Florida on your simulator.
Don't have a plane? Check out airfares. Rates are usually really good at that time of year. But don't wait to long, its spring break so rooms fill up fast.
While you are at Sun N Fun, attend one of my buying an aircraft seminars so you can fly yourself to the event the next year.
Once you've been you have to go back.
Oh, and having ridden in Fat Albert once, makes the return of the Blue Angels even more exciting.
