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.”

Interested In Attending The Fly-In & Expo? While there are a ton of events that will take place over the course of five days, but there are some that will almost guarantee your attendance.  If you are at the show make sure to come visit us at Hangar A, Booth 21.
