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.
