Homebuilt Aircraft

Are you planning to fly your newly built or almost complete Homebuilt to SUN ‘n FUN this year?  Don’t forget to inquire about our Perseverance Award for newly completed or almost complete Homebuilts.  We want you to join us even if your aircraft project has been completed for years…. Actually, are they really ever really complete?

Don’t forget to inquire about aircraft judging. You must have your aircraft judging registration completed by noon on Friday.

Are you thinking of building a homebuilt aircraft?  This is your opportunity to take a look at many different types of aircraft when visiting our Homebuilt Aircraft area. Many of our Homebuilders enjoy sharing their homebuilding experience, so stop by, ask questions and enjoy the talents of many who have shared the same love of homebuilding. Homebuilt Parking and camping are now co-located so you see many different plans-built and kit-built aircraft. Share a hangar chat with an owner/builder who might be willing to share a tip or two!

Homebuilders will be in close proximity to the, The Island!  Make sure to drop by and enjoy the refreshments, entertainment, and presentations throughout the day and into the evening.  This area will also provide support services like the Pilot Welcome Center, camp store, ticket sales, shower houses, Rideshare and Publix Instacart grocery delivery. Refreshments will be available starting noon on Saturday, April 6.

Homebuilt Parking & Camping, along with their hospitality operation will be in the same location, just west of 5/23 and south of the VOR.  This location will provide a great view of the Showcase Fly-Bys and daily airshows without leaving the area.  Please make sure the window placard indicates your desired parking location, as several aircraft parking and camping areas have been relocated. Please watch ground personnel for directions. Weekly or daily camping purchase is required to camp with your aircraft.

Admission is included with a Weekly or Fly-In Early Aircraft Camping purchase.

If you have guests driving in to join you, auto parking and ticket sales are now available on the southeast side of the convention site and in close proximity to most airside aircraft parking/camping locations on the east side of the airport. This will provide guests the ability to purchase entry and gain immediate airside access close to the east end of the airport and near aircraft parking and camping areas. Transportation will also be provided. Note: Vehicles are not permitted on airside and must park in the guest parking lot.
