EAA Getting Ready for Sun 'n Fun
The EAA Welcome Center will be in the same familiar location at Sun 'n Fun, April 9-14, in Lakeland, Florida.
April 3, 2013 - Tuesday marks opening day at the 39th annual Sun 'n Fun International Fly-In & Expo at Lakeland, Florida, GA's weeklong spring break for pilots.
EAA staff and volunteers are there now making final preparations at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport, where EAA members will receive special discounted admission. Members can renew or verify memberships at the front gate tent to make sure they get the best rate possible.
Speaking of memberships, those who join, renew, or sign up for AutoPilot receive a free gift while supplies last. Bring your membership card to the flightline Member Oasis and join us for some shade, snacks, and fun throughout the fly-in! Not a member yet or want to bring a non-member friend to the Oasis? Not a problem - EAA is extending a complimentary six-month membership, only at the flightline tent and only during Sun 'n Fun 2013!
Visit us and check out all there is to offer at the EAA Welcome Center at the same location as last year (NE-039, -040, -063, -064). See an example of EAA's 2013 Aircraft Sweepstakes grand prize, a Stearman biplane, and enter to win it. There's also great merchandise available, and you can ask staff most any question about EAA, member services, and benefits. While you're there, you can also get your discounted advance admission to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013.
