Florida Anyone? SUN N FUN '21

Recommended Posts

SnF is on, and about 2 months out, so sending a heads up for those who might be interested in the show.  I'm not sure of dates I'd be around, maybe a couple nights of camping on the field is current thought, and won't make the call until the week prior as getting out / back in to Michigan can still be a wildcard that early in season.

Sun n Fun is a blast.  I like it better than Osh because of the smaller scale, yet lots of "Oshkosh style" plane entertainment.  

I will try to go.  Would love to fly down but I am getting back in the work force shortly and my time won't be my own...

I plan on being there now that I am getting  second Covid-19 vaccine shot next week.

I enjoy Sun n Fun, Hotels there are very reasonable.

Getting closer - have the week off and will start to pick the dates as weather forecast firms up.  Presently thinking of shooting down Monday 12th to near area and hoteling it that night, then arrive day 1 on Tue 13th, camping a night or two.  If weather is crappy I'll push later in the week accordingly.

Ok. I was thinking to try Paradise City this time.  Nice 2200' grass strip.  I was thinking Wednesday because they seem to have a good cast for the airshow.

The Paradise City runway will be closed. Here’s an excerpt from the 2021 NOTAM.  The full text is available on line.

RWY 08/26 will be CLOSED from 1400 EDT (1800 UTC) April 2 through 1600 EDT (2000 UTC) April 22. (See: Paradise City)

Well, now that I read further down the NOTAM, it looks like it’s open to types including SLSA. Looks like an opportunity.

Yeah - having a southern arrival and being separated out of the main LAL approach would certainly take some pressure off.  I'm encouraged with how the weather forecast is trending on my route and at the event, looking like good odd's I'll make it.

I hope the weather is nice Wednesday because I took that day off work. I hope to see you there.
