Stop by the AOPA Tent to get the first look at the Debonair Sweepstakes aircraft, a 1963 Beechcraft Debonair B33 in the process of restoration that includes an all-new ergonomic interior, the latest avionics, and up-to-date airframe mods. This one-of-a-kind “Baby Bonanza” is the grand prize in AOPA’s Debonair Sweepstakes.
While at the AOPA Tent, stop inside to renew your membership, learn about new member benefits, test your aviation knowledge, and talk with aviation experts one-on-one.
Know someone who is dreaming of flying? Visit the AOPA Center to Advance the Pilot Community inside the AOPA Tent to get information on learning to fly, including how AOPA programs can help you accomplish your flight training goals.

The AOPA Tent is located west of Hangar A outside of the PilotMall Hangar. For more information about AOPA at Sun ‘n Fun and for an official schedule of AOPA events, visit AOPA’s Sun ’n Fun Web page.
