Headed to SUN 'n
Sporty’s Free SUN 'n FUN App
LAKELAND, FL -
March 28, 2013 The new Sporty's Airshow app will enhance your experience!
Sporty’s, in partnership with SUN ‘n FUN, is releasing a free mobile app
for the 39th Annual SUN 'n FUN International Fly-In & Expo that is now
available for both Apple and Android devices. The 2013 SUN ‘n FUN app may
be downloaded free at Sportys.com/apps, through the iTunes App store or
You will have all the information you need at your fingertips, ranging from
maps to exhibitors and displays, forums, events, tram routes and more. The
interactive exhibitors list is linked to detailed maps. Simply click on an
exhibitor’s name, and you will instantly see their exact location whether
in an exhibit hangar or anywhere on the show grounds.
“Knowing that the company you want to visit is in booth C-088 isn’t helpful
in itself,” said Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “With our app, you
will now know whether the company is inside or outside and its location
within an exhibit hangar.”
Sporty’s SUN ‘n FUN app will be useful even before the show starts.
If you’re driving to the event, you can access directions and detailed
parking information. You can also avoid long admission lines by
buying advanced tickets through the app. If you’re arriving by
general aviation aircraft, the complete SUN ‘n FUN NOTAM is included for
arrival and departure procedures as well as a convenient local airport
directory. It’s perfect for in-flight reference as the app does not
require an internet connection.
We want to remind pilots to stock up for SUN ‘n FUN and buy tie downs,
batteries, sunglasses, charts and whatever other supplies are necessary for
your trip,” adds Zimmerman. “Of course, we’ve made it easy to connect to
Sporty’s and shop right from the app.” “Don’t forget to allow some
time to just sit under a tree and watch the airplanes,” says Zimmerman.
“You can spend a relaxing hour just doing that. If you want, you can
multitask and listen to SUN ‘n FUN radio via the app while you sit.”
Since time can go by fast at SUN ‘n FUN, the “My SUN ‘n FUN” feature guides
you through making up your own schedule, consulting with the available
forums, exhibitors to visit, seminars, events, evening programs and air
show performances. The detailed maps will make finding these activities
Sporty’s created the app as a service to SUN ‘n FUN attendees. In addition
to SUN ‘n FUN, Sporty’s has created apps for EAA AirVenture, AOPA Summit
and the International Women in Aviation Conference.

FUN app works on all Apple devices, including iPad, iPhone and iPod
