Imagine the convenience of being able to fly your plane any time you want simply by walking out your front door. Well that dream is achievable at Ridge Landing Airpark in Florida.
SUN ‘n FUN is one of the most adventurous aviation events in the world today, attracting participants from all around the globe. The annual international fly in and expo event provides a weeklong platform for participants and spectators to learn as much as they can about the aviation industry while having fun and enjoying the sun.
The 6-day event, which takes place in April, celebrates the past and current developments in the aviation industry, featuring more than 4,000 airplanes and 500 commercial exhibitors displaying the latest products and services available to the aviation industry.
SUN ‘n FUN is not only known for the fly in and expo, but also for supporting Central Florida Aerospace Academy and Florida Air Museum. Whether you’re a pilot or an avid aviation enthusiast, this is one event you don’t want to miss. Pack up a cooler, a lawn chair and a couple friends and head over to the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport to check out these must-see activities and more.
Flying into SUN ‘n FUN is always a great time! We go every year and it’s our favorite Fly in Expo, mainly because it’s conveniently close to our Florida Airpark.

Join Ridge Landing’s Residents as they take off in their personal air crafts to Lakeland, Florida for the 40th annual international fly-in and expo. We can’t believe that for 40 years now, flight enthusiasts and pilots have joined together at the same airspace to share their passion for aviation with each other. It began with a small group of aviators that wanted to join together every year and hold a “fly-in,” little did they know that it would soon become an “International Fly-In & Expo.”
