Light Plane pilots will be in close proximity to the event’s “new” venue, The Island!  This new and exciting area will provide entertainment, presentations and refreshments all day and into the evening.  This area will also provide support services like the Pilot Welcome Center, camp store, ticket sales, shower houses, Uber & Lyft services and Publix Instacart grocery delivery.

RV Camping is available south of runway 8/26.  If you plan to center your visit around Paradise City and plan to bring your RV, you may want to consider this option, however, it is dry camping. Camping can be purchased at the ticket sales area near the Polk State College building in Lakeland Airside Center.
