SUN ‘n FUN Aerobatic HQ Mission
To provide a place for aerobatic enthusiasts to gather and have a place to park their airplanes during the annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo.
To provide social and educational opportunities for all and sponsor safety forums during the Expo. The emphasis of the forums is on better airmanship to provide safer piloting.
For the purposes of this section, aerobatic flight means an intentional maneuver involving an abrupt change in an aircraft’s attitude, an abnormal attitude, or abnormal acceleration, not necessary for normal flight. From FAR 91.303.
At the SNF Aerobatic HQ, we promote Stall-Spin awareness, unusual attitude recovery training and better airmanship through aerobatic proficiency. We also maintain a list of aerobatic schools and instructors for those that are looking to improve their flying skills.
If you are flying in, check the NOTAM for arrival information. It is available at flysnf.org. Put a sign in your window with large letters ACRO and you will be directed to the new 2021 location of the Aerobatic HQs. This year Aerobatic HQ’s new location is due South of the War bird Ramp – across from (North of) Vintage Aircraft Parking.

There will be DAILY 11AM presentations at the AEROBATIC HQ. Check the SnF DAILY SCHEDULE for details.
