Look for AOPA's Big Yellow Tent at Sun 'n Fun.
The unofficial start of airshow season kicks off Tuesday in Lakeland, Florida, when the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In opens April 4.
But if you're planning to visit the big show, make sure you circle Friday, April 7, on your calendar. That's AOPA Day at Sun 'n Fun, and AOPA members will get a $5 discount off a single-day admission when they show their AOPA member card (may not be combined with any other offer).
The excitement really starts Thursday evening when AOPA President Phil Boyer hosts a free Pilot Town Meeting on the Sun 'n Fun grounds. On Friday, be sure to stop by AOPA's Big Yellow Tent. There will be hourly seminars on everything from medical issues to safety to insurance.
While you're at the tent, don't forget to pick up your AOPA sticker. AOPA's SurPRIZE Squad will be canvassing the grounds, rewarding members and attendees for showing their AOPA pride - one lucky winner will receive the grand prize, a Garmin 396 handheld GPS! Of course, a highlight at the tent will be the public debut of AOPA's Win a Six in '06 Sweepstakes airplane, a 1967 Cherokee Six. The airplane will be parked right next to the tent all week.
