Vintage Aircraft

Are you planning to fly your vintage-era aircraft to SUN ‘n FUN this year? Will your factory-built aircraft qualify to park in Vintage? Check out the categories below:

  • Antique – any airplane constructed on or before August 31, 1945
  • Classic – constructed between September 1, 1945, through December 31, 1955
  • Contemporary – constructed between January 1, 1956, through Dec. 31, 1970

Vintage pilots will be in close proximity to 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.

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

Vintage event and camping registration can be obtained at the Vintage Hospitality building located just west of the Vintage parking area.  You may also camp with your aircraft in the Vintage Parking/Camping area as long as your aircraft qualifies to be in the area.  Weekly or daily camping purchase is required to camp with your aircraft. Check out the Fly-In Early Camping package on the Camping link below!

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.

Vintage Parking/Camping is located south of the taxiway at the end of runway 5/23.
