Florida’s Largest Aviation Event

Experience Kissimmee is helping to celebrate the 40th anniversary of SUN ‘n FUN, the “spring break for pilots” and aviation enthusiasts, this year as a sponsor for the annual International Fly-In & Expo, held just a short drive from the popular Central Florida destination.

With a wide-variety of attractions and activities for the whole family to enjoy and a number of special offers on lodging and activities, Kissimmee is the perfect place to stay and play while attending the annual event in Lakeland, Florida from April 1-6, 2014.

For four decades, the Fly-In has preserved the future of aviation by focusing on educating new generations with a variety of hands-on activities. The week-long event is expected to attract more than 200,000 visitors from around the globe to the Central Florida area. 

Throughout the week, attendees will have the opportunity to view more than 10,000 different aircrafts from homebuilts to warbirds, ultralights and new models on the exhibit floor, and then participate in a number of hands-on activities, workshops, forums and view daily airshows.

Lakeland Linder Regional Airport will become the busiest airport in the region, with 10,000-15,000 aircraft flying in and out during the week. A convenient alternative is Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM), which offers additional parking, tie down and fuel conveniences and an easy commute to the event.

Kissimmee also offers a wide-variety of accommodations, attractions and activities suited for the whole family, just 45 minutes from SUN ‘n FUN and right next door to Walt Disney World and Orlando’s world- famous theme parks. The easy commute makes Kissimmee the perfect option for family members who choose not to attend the entire event. Many accommodations in Kissimmee also offer free shuttle transportation to major theme parks and a variety of special offers.

In Kissimmee, visitors attending SUN ‘n FUN can stay and play for less with deals found throughout the area. For more special offers, visit www.experiencekissimmee.com/sun-n-fun/sun-n-funspecials/
