National STOL Demonstration

The Husky National STOL Series has partnered with the SUN 'n FUN Aerospace Expo, returning to Paradise City Field to bring you the 2022 STOL Demonstration!

Husky National STOL brings with them the most exciting and fastest growing sport in General Aviation! Our skilled STOL Pilots & Demo Teams will converge on Lakeland from across the continent, with pilots coming all the way from Canada and the Western United States, and will fly daily at Paradise City starting at 6:00pm on Tuesday-Thursday and 6:30 on Friday & Saturday; providing you an hour of amazingly Short Takeoffs and Landings in airplanes ranging from Heavy Touring class Cessna 180s to the most popular kit planes on the market today in the Light Experimental class.

The Husky National STOL Demo pilots have been featured in numerous aviation publications to date, such as Flying Magazine, AvWeb and AviNation. These pilots and their aircraft are the hottest STOL teams out there.
