Thunderbirds arrive By BEN SCLAIR The Thunderbirds are here! In case you missed the memo, or yesterday’s 1 p.m. overhead arrival, fear not, the U.S. Air Force Demonstration Team will be center stage again Thursday. Today is a scheduled down day for the team, as they arrived two days earlier than typical on their 35-location, 73-show season that started last month and runs through November. Aaron “Ice” Jelinek, Opposing Solo #6, from Clarkston, Wash., said, “we’ll be visit-

ing Kathleen and Tenoroc High Schools on Friday, in the morning.” The nine-year Air Force veteran has served two deployments, the first in Oman for Operation Enduring Freedom, and the second in Balad, Iraq, for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Chief among Thunderbirds’ duties is, “Recruit. Represent. Retain,” continued Jelinek. “We represent 700,000 airmen worldwide, 40,000 of whom are currently deployed. On Saturday, we will conduct an enlistment ceremony,” in support of the recruitment mission, he added. Jelinek comes to the job with general

aviation credentials. He attended EmbryRiddle’s Prescott, Arizona, campus to earn a computer science degree. The ROTC member earned his private and instrument tickets when not programming computers. To date, he has 1,300 hours in the F-16 and 1,800 total. The team will practice on Thursday and Friday, and perform on Saturday and Sunday. “We are excited to be performing in front of thousands of fellow pilots,” said Jelinek. “This will be a special show for us.”

Established. Proven. Unmatched.

When choosing an aviation headset, consider this. Bose was the first to establish the use of active noise reducing headsets in aviation almost 20 years ago. And since then, we’ve continued to be the headset pilots prefer year after year.

lightweight Aviation Headset has been engineered to be the most comfortable headset you can wear without compromising on noise reduction or audio performance. Flyer Magazine says the Aviation Headset “is the closest thing to not wearing a headset at all.”

Today’s Bose Aviation Headset delivers a highly acclaimed combination of noise reduction, clearer audio and comfort that remains unmatched. And # for nine years in a row, it’s been rated #1 in NINE Professional Pilot’s annual survey, claiming this YEARS year’s top honors for comfortable fit, clarity and IN A ROW technical advancement. It’s this rare combination Professional Pilot’s 2009 of benefits that other manufacturers find most headset preference survey difficult to duplicate and what continues to distinguish the Aviation Headset from other ANR headsets.

U.S. Air Force AWACS crews, who often fly 14-hour shifts, tested many different ANR headsets. They chose Bose. Made in the U.S.A., the Aviation Headset is fully certified to FAA TSO standards.

Noise reduction. Clearer audio. Advanced technology effectively reduces aircraft engine noise, so you’ll hear more of what you want to hear. All with the clearer audio that has made Bose the most respected name in sound. The Aviation Consumer reports the performance “sets it apart from the pack.”

Convenient Bose payment plan. Use your own major credit card to make 12 easy payments, with no interest charges from Bose.* Take our 30-day Test Flight. The best way to truly appreciate the Bose Aviation Headset is to experience it in your aircraft. That’s where it was engineered to be at its most effective. Fly with it just once, and you’ll understand right away why Bose is the industry leader, and why pilots rate us #1 time and time again. See us at Sun n Fun at the Bose Pavilion

Missionaries who take their work to some of the world’s most remote locations — most accessible only by aircraft — will share their remarkable story at at a special “Mission Aviation� in the Southeast Exhibit area. Four mission aviation organizations are participating, including Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF); JAARS (formerly “Jungle Aviation and Radio Ser vice, now the technical suppor t arm of Wyclif fe Bible Translators); New Tribes Mission (NTM); and Indigenous People’s Technology Center (I-TEC). More than 30 missionary pilots will be on hand to provide first-hand insights into the challenging world of mission aviation. Aircraft on display within the exhibit include a Helio Courier, Quest Kodiak and the Maverick “Flying Buggy� – a flying car. There also is a three-axis flight simulator provided by MAF that features an approach to a very challenging airstrip in Indonesia. “Mission Aviation began in earnest after World War II,� said John Hoke, who is coordinating the group’s pres-

access isolated areas that are unreachable by other, more ordinary means. This is a remarkable story of people helping people through aviation.� The exhibit also includes a prop from the movie “End of the Spear,� a 2006 documentar y that recounts the stor y of “Operation Auca,� in which five American Christian missionaries were killed while attempting to evangelize the Waodani people living in the jungles of Ecuador in the 1950s. The movie is told from the perspective of Steve Saint , son of one of the five murdered missionaries, and “Mincaye,� one of the tribesmen who killed the missionaries. Saint and Mincaye eventually formed a friendship that continues to this day. Several educational forums based on mission aviation also will be presented this week, including one focusing on the Maverick Flying Car; another on Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) Flying Techniques; a third on mountain flying; and a fourth featuring a panel discussion on Fly4Life activities.

The Seaplanes Pilot Association is giving away a float plane rating (a $1,200 value). Sign up for a one-year membership to the association ($45) to enter the give away. Winner will receive a two-day session at Jack Brown’s Seaplane Base here in Florida. For more information stop by the association’s booth in Hangar C, Space 77, or online at Seaplanes.org.

What’s in a name? You may have noticed that Sun ’n Fun has changed its name this year. It’s official name now is the Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In & Expo. “That was done to recognize what has developed over the past 36 years,� said Jim Bernegger, the fly-in’s spokesman. “What started as an enthusiasts’ fly-in has grown into a significant event for the industry.� Adding international to the name pays homage to the fact that each year the fly-in attracts visitors from all over the world. Last year, people from 86 countries attended the event. Adding “Expo� brings attention to a “significant dimension� of the show — education — which is also the core mission of Sun ’n Fun, Bernegger

said. “Through the Expo the industr y can share current information and developments with the pilot population, while the fly-in retains much of the character of Sun ’n Fun with the forums and the workshops.� The changes are subtle, he admits. “But it’s a significant statement recognizing the movement of the industry to a more global profile,� he said. You also may notice that the organizers have kept the tagline “Spring Break for Pilots.� It’s especially true this year, as winter has been so hard for so many, Bernegger said. Lastly, Sun ’n Fun officials continue the mantra that “the aviation year starts here.� “Many people look to the show to give the industry a jumpstart on new products and developments,� he said.

Laugh and learn: AOPA brings Rod Machado to this year’s fly-in The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is proud to bring flight instr uctor extraordinaire Rod Machado to Sun ’n Fun for three days of thought- and laugh-provoking seminars. Machado, a flight instructor, author, and monthly contributor to AOPA Pilot and Flight Training magazines, will present three seminars in the AOPA Pavilion, next to the Florida Air Museum, at 10 a.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Tomorrow, Machado will talk about “Yoke and Pedal: Secrets to Better Piloting Proficiency.” Is it OK to use two hands to flare an airplane? Should you crab or sideslip during a crosswind landing? Are you approaching too fast or too slow? When should you raise your gear after takeoff? Should

you always land on the numbers? Do you need to fly by the seat of your pants to fly coordinated? What’s the most important thing you need to do to avoid stalling an airplane on final approach? If you’d like answers to these and other flying technique questions, then be sure to be at the AOPA Pavilion at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Friday is just for laughs…and a little learning. Machado will present his own inimitable style of aviation humor. Who knew you could learn so much while laughing so hard? Finally, Saturday is reserved for all those would-be pilots out there. He will explain how taking flying lessons could be the best decision of your life. And he’ll share the information you need to start you or a friend on the path to “pilothood.”

Choppertown marks milestone thing in aviation, he noted and, because of this, the pilots are what Meyer called “working young. “They are still in the midst of their careers, so they can talk to the kids who come down here and tell them about what it is like to fly for the military or law enforcement or medevac,” he said. “We get them interested in aviation. Those future pilots come from here.” One of the special parts of the week is when the British Air Cadets come to Choppertown. “We started them out on the ground learning hand signals, which are necessary for the launch and recovery of a helicopter,” he said. “They learn what can happen if those signals get messed up. Then after they master the ground, we put them in the air.” Chopper town is located south of the warbird area and east of light plane camping.

The year was 1990. The year may be remembered by some as the year of the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Exxon Oil spill, but for visitors to Sun ’n Fun it will be remembered as the year Choppertown, the official space for rotorcraft, was established. The undisputed mayor of Choppertown is Bill Meyer of Jacksonville, Fla., known as Flangehead to his friends. “Before Choppertown was created, people used to fly in here and park their helicopters and gyrocopters and that was it, that’s where they had to stay. They couldn’t get near their aircraft until after the show. They certainly couldn’t fly them. A bunch of us got to talking to Sun ’n Fun Director Billy Henderson and he said ‘somebody needs to start a helicopter section. We need one.’ Then I looked around and everyone was gone. I was too stupid to move, so I got the job.” What was needed was a space large enough to conduct safe flights and have room for vendor displays. “Safety was first,” said Meyer. “We had to keep the fixed-wing and helicopters apart.” It took about a year to find the right location for Chopper town, which is located on the southeast corner of the airport. “We’re tucked into a little corner of the airport,” said Meyer. “It’s far removed from the main traffic areas.” A tram takes visitors to Choppertown because, for most people, it’s quite a walk

from the main exhibit grounds. The remoteness is a double-edged sword, says Meyer. “We are far out here and some people may not know we are here, but because we are separated from the fixed-wing traffic, the vendors can do intro flights and the like,” he said. Demonstration flights also are common. On Monday afternoon a pair of gyrocopters were taking turns shoot-

ing approaches to a grass landing zone marked off with white paint. The number of exhibitors and vendors varies based on the economy, says Meyer. “Helicopters are expensive — more expensive to fly, maintain and operate than a fixed wing,” he said. “We have as many as 14 to 20 vendors and some standing by to come.” Helicopters are still a relatively new

Skiles to speak at special Splash-In luncheon Something new has been added to the popular Splash-In, slated for Thursday at Lake Agnes, adjacent to Fantasy of Flight. This year, Fantasy of Flight has added a luncheon featuring Jeff Skiles, who ser ved as the first of ficer to Captain Chesley Sullenberger III on US Air ways Flight 1549, during the historic “Miracle on the Hudson.” Skiles is scheduled to arrive at Sun ’n Fun today. Fantasy of Flight founder Kermit Weeks will pick up Skiles at the Sun ’n Fun grounds in an amphibious Grumman Duck at 10 a.m. tomorrow and fly him back to Fantasy of Flight. Skiles will then speak to guests about his role in the heroic landing at a BBQ lunch. Cost of the BBQ lunch is $20 plus tax, which does not include admission to Fantasy of Flight and Splash-In, which are priced separately. “Aviation is a field that has always lent itself to creating heroes, and Jeff Skiles is certainly one of them,” said Weeks. “We’re excited to have him at Fantasy of Flight to share his recollec-

tions of that historic water landing. And this time, we hope the only bird in the air will be our own Grumman Duck!” The one-day Splash-In celebrates seaplanes and other amphibious aircraft, as dozens of seaplane pilots use Fantasy of Flight’s Lake Agnes as their chosen landing strip. This “fly-in within a fly-in” includes water takeoffs and landings, as well as competition flying, spot landing, a “bomb drop” contest and slaloms with floatplanes and flying boats. The Splash-In is included in Fantasy of Flight’s admission price, which is $28.95 for adults and $14.95 for children, ages 6-15. Sun ’n Fun attendees will receive $5 off the regular admission price with proof of admission to Sun ’n Fun. The offer is good for multiple visits and expires May 31. Sun ’n Fun guests who do not wish to visit Fantasy of Flight will be charged $5 for parking and admission to the Splash-In. Guests are transported by shuttle to and from Fantasy of Flight and Sun ’n Fun grounds at Lakeland Linder Field throughout the event. Cost is $3 each way.

Alto 100, all-metal LSA, debuts at show Targeted at flight schools and cross-country LSA owners, the Alto 100 will make its U.S. debut at Sun ’n Fun this week.

HIS OTHER PLANE: While he flies jetliners for a living, Jeff Skiles relaxes in his WACO.

The LSA features a 100-hp Rotax 912S engine and Sensenich carbon fiber ground adjustable prop; Matco wheels and brakes; a 7-inch Dynon Skyview EFIS/EMS glass; PS Engineering intercom; and electric pitch and roll trim in the base model, available for $99,995. “Advanced” and IFR models are also available, ranging to $115,284.

Flight Design debuts floats, new models Flight Design, which manufactures the best-selling Light Sport Aircraft in the U.S., is not sitting on its laurels. The German company, which already of fers several models, including the CTLS, the MC and the CTLS Lite, is debuting another model, the CTLS-HL (for High Lift) Turbocharged model. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also busy on a joint venture with Clamar Floats to develop floats for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LSAs. The floats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and all the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s models â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are on display at its exhibit in the Southeast Exhibit area, Space 21, where Flight Design is offering a show special for those who buy a plane this week: A free upgrade that includes a 406ELT, a Garmin 696 and leather seats. The CTLS-HL, which spor ts a 12% longer wing and stabilizer, was originally developed for glider towing, according to Tom Peghiny, president of FlightDesignUSA. Powered by a turbocharged Rotax 914, it also features â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like all Flight Design airplanes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a BRS airframe parachute. The CTLS remains the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flagship model, targeted at both individuals and flight schools. Often it is the first glass cockpit, first LSA and first composite airplane people fly, he said, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also very popular for rentals.â&#x20AC;? The production version of the MC, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s metal LSA, is on display at the show this week. Designed specifically for flying clubs and training, the plane is made mostly of aluminum with a steel cage.

While it has lower acquisition and operating costs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it looks like a GA plane and it feels like a GA plane,â&#x20AC;? Peghiny said. Making its U.S. debut this week is the CTLS Lite, which features a lowered price and a higher useful load than the CTLS. The company was able to lower the price by making many of the items that are standard on the CTLS options on the Lite model. It also uses more American-made parts, especially avionics, while weighing 50 lbs. less than the CTLS. It sells for $119,980, about $20,000 less than the CTLS. Flight Design officials spent the last year looking for just the right floats for its LSAs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have so much water in Germany,â&#x20AC;? joked Matthias Betsch, CEO

Go green at ‘GreenSpace’ When you think of environmentally friendly products and services, aviation may not be the first industry that comes to mind. But Sun ’n Fun officials are working to change all that with the return of an exhibit area known as “GreenSpace.” The new area, dedicated to aviation-oriented products and ser vices that are “friendly” to the environment, debuted during last year’s fly-in. The GreenSpace featured Randall Fishman’s ElectraFlyer-C airplane, an electric car, a hybrid car, the Lindbergh Foundation’s “Green Investment Program,” a children’s educational area, the City of Lakeland’s water and

soil conservation displays, a Florida Refuse recycling exhibit, and numerous other exhibitors focused on green products, services and lifestyles. This year’s GreenSpace exhibit will feature much of the same, plus an enhanced presence by the Lindbergh Foundation, showcasing current initiatives designed to integrate technology with the environment and, at the same time, educate the public about the growing number of green activities that are taking place in the world of aviation. “Sun ’n Fun is proud to partner with the Lindbergh Foundation, whose mission it is to further Charles and Anne

Morrow Lindbergh’s shared vision of a balance between technological advancement and environmental preservation,” said Sun ’n Fun President John Burton. “We hope to capture this vision in our GreenSpace exhibit and share it with Sun ’n Fun participants and guests throughout the week of this year’s Fly-In & Expo.” The Lindbergh Foundation is a non-profit organization, based in Anoka, Minnesota, that suppor ts individual innovations that foster the environment for a planet in balance. Its programs include the annual Lindbergh Award, presented to individuals for significant contribu-

tions toward balancing nature and scientific innovation in their work; the Lindbergh Grants program, which provides grants in amounts up to $10,580 (the cost of building “The Spirit of St. Louis” in 1927) for research or education projects that will make important contributions to the technology/environment balance; and a variety of educational events and publications centered on the balance theme. The Lindbergh Awards will be presented during the fly-in. The Greenspace is in the Southeast Exhibit Area, near the Main Tram Station.

The official aviation superstore of Sun ’n Fun PilotMall.com is the “Official Aviation Superstore of Sun ’n Fun.” PilotMall.com has forged a partnership with Sun ’n Fun that includes operating a 4,000-square-foot aviation superstore in the former Gifts of Flight building on the Sun ’n Fun campus during the annual airshow. PilotMall.com also manages the Gifts of Flight Tents and powers Sun ’n Fun’s online store. PilotMall.com, which has been around for more than 10 years and sells more than 4,000 products, will offer a wide assortment of pilot supplies, educational materials, gifts and toys during the fly-in, according to Neil Glazer, president. “We will have several thousand products available, from education materials — which our company is very big on — to headsets and portable GPS.”

This year, the store also offers an assortment of sundr y items to help make your fly-in experience more comfortable, including hats, chairs, batteries and more. The store will also be offering samples of men’s grooming products from its recently launched sister company, Mens Direct (MensDirect.com), Glazer said. Of course, the PilotMall.com Aviation Superstore will also carry the full line of official Sun ’n Fun-branded merchandise, including T-shirts and more, as well as USAF Thunderbird-branded merchandise. Meanwhile, Gifts of Flight locations will be at various spots around the campus, such as in front of the Sunset Grill, near the Announcers Stand, at the Florida Air Museum gift shop and elsewhere. Those shops will also carry official Sun ’n Fun merchandise.

Back at the PilotMall.com store, there will be a daily raffle at 5 p.m. for a wide assortment of items, including handheld GPS receivers, headsets, sunglasses and more, Glazer reported. Popular author and speaker Rod Machado will do book signings at the store on Thursday and Friday at 11:30 a.m. each day. Glazer noted the store also has a cour tesy XM Weather Station so pilots can check the weather before heading home. There’s also a flight simulator set up so that customers can test fly the latest simulation software and hardware. The store will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the fly-in.

Return engagement: The United States Air Force (USAF) Thunderbirds military jet team returns to Sun ’n Fun this year. The world-recognized militar y jet team first appeared at Sun ’n Fun in 2008. “ We a r e d e l i g h t e d t h a t t h e Thunderbirds will return to the skies over Lakeland, knowing the memorable impact their appearance made on all our guests in 2008,” said President John Burton. The Thunderbirds are expected to arrive on opening day, then command the skies with a practice demonstration slated for 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday and another on Friday from 2:40 p.m. to 3:30

Visitors to this year’s fly-in will notice some changes to the Sun ’n Fun campus, including a new exhibit hangar and the relocation of the popular Parts Exchange. Hangar E (Echo) is located near the existing indoor exhibit hangars, just a short distance from the Gulf Coast Avionics/Garmin Hangar D (Delta) near the entrance to the campgrounds. The Parts Exchange, formerly located in Paradise City (the ultralight area), is now adjacent to the new hangar. “Sun ’n Fun is pleased to offer additional exhibit

space that will help accommodate those businesses who were previously unable to participate due to space limitations,” said President John Burton. Bur ton added that moving the popular Par ts Exchange operation next door to Hangar Echo “will stimulate a great deal of additional pedestrian traffic throughout the area.” “Parts Exchange is a major destination for homebuilders and certified aircraft owners alike,” Burton explained. “Thousands of items are consigned by their owners to sell in the Parts Exchange each year. From avionics, props and instruments old and new, to partially completed aircraft fuselages, wings and a host of other pieces, parts and components, chances are good that you will be able to find whatever it is you’re

‘Miracle on the Hudson’ lands in Lakeland Jeff Skiles, first officer on US Air ways Flight 1549 that safely landed in the Hudson River last January, will be a featured participant at a variety of events during this year’s fly-in. Skiles, 50, was at the controls with Captain Chesley Sullenberger when their Airbus A320 experienced multiple bird strikes and lost power to both engines shortly after taking off from New York City’s LaGuardia Airport on Jan. 15, 2009. Unable to restart either engine, Sullenberger safely landed the airplane on the chilly waters of the Hudson River just west of midtown Manhattan. Of the 150 passengers and five crew members on board, only a few received minor injuries. “Whether you are an aviation enthusiast or not, US Airways Flight 1549 struck a chord with people across the country and around the world with its inspiring stor y about passengers and crew successfully overcoming almost insurmountable odds,” said Sun ’n Fun President John Burton. “Many have seen the dramatic video footage and read about the crew’s efforts to safely land a disabled passenger jet in one of the world’s most congested airspaces. But few have had a chance to hear Jeff’s first-person

account of what happened, from uneventful takeoff to the remarkably safe and successful water landing.” “Flight 1549 is a story about people,” Skiles said, “people overcoming adversity, people triumphant over hardship and, I’m warning you, my stor y might not be what you are expecting.” Skiles will relay this story during a number of scheduled activities throughout the week, highlighted by an Evening Program at the Florida Air Museum’s outdoor Pavilion on Wednesday, April 14, beginning at 8 p.m.; a “Museum Mingle” for members of the Florida Air Museum on Thursday, April 15, at 7 p.m.; a museum lecture on Friday, April 16, at 2 p.m.; and a host of other activities during the week. Skiles started flying at the age of 16 and has logged more than 20,000 hours as a pilot. His early flying time was spent with his father over the Alcan Highway to Alaska. He went on to become a CFI, flew cargo aircraft and later worked for a commuter airline. He has spent the past 24 years as a first officer and captain for US Airways. He also owns a WACO biplane.

Got a question for the FAA administrator? FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt is slated to appear at several venues this week, including the always-interesting “Meet the FAA” session on Friday, April 16, at 1 p.m. in the FAA Production Studios in the FAA Building in the middle of the grounds. “There are several issues we hope to

discuss with the administrator and his key staff members during the course of his stay,” said Sun ’n Fun President John Burton. “We also hope he will be able to spend some of his time along the flightline meeting with pilots and enjoying a healthy dose of Sun ’n Fun’s

southern-style hospitality.” Babbitt was sworn in as the FAA’s 16th administrator June 1, 2009. He began his aviation career as a pilot, flying 25 years for Eastern Airlines. He also served as president and CEO for the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA).

Emergency Repair Team ready to get you on your way Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just spent a wonderful day at Sun â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Fun and are ready to fly home. But during your preflight inspection you notice the nose str ut of your Cessna 182 is completely flat. All is not lost â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one quick call to the Aircraft Emergency Repair Team can get you on your way. This year the team is made of up 15 to 20 volunteers, according to Charlie

Bukoski who, with his wife Judy, heads the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do big repairs, but we can help with little ones, like replacing fluids or charging a batter y,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The busiest time for us is right after the airshow ends because that is when people realize that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve left the master switch on and the battery is dead.â&#x20AC;?

he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We normally assist 70 to 85 people during the event. The bulk of those issues are problems with dead batteries, brakes, and flat tires.â&#x20AC;? Hours are from 8 a.m. to an hour or so after the airshow. If a plane has serious issues, the volunteers can have it towed to one of the FBOs at the airport for more extensive repairs.

Got questions? The Tourism Information Center has answers, as well as playing host to the Internet Cafe. If you need help finding accommodations or want a recommendation on where to eat while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at Sun â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Fun, you can find the answers at the center, which is just outside the Sunset Grill. Operated by the Polk County Visitors and Convention Bureau â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also known as the Central Florida Visitors and Convention Bureau â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the information center will be staffed throughout the show with specialists who can answer anything from whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best place to shop to where campers can wash their clothes. The center also will have Florida airport directories and aeronautical charts available (while supplies last), as well as Florida road maps and guides. It also will be the site of the Internet cafe. There will be four computers available at no charge.

Behave yourself! Getting up close to an airplane is privilege, not a right. Here are some rules to remember when you visit the flight line: â&#x20AC;˘ Do not walk in front of an airplane that is taxiing toward you. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not walk with your back to a moving airplane. When an aircraft approaches, step off to the side, well clear of the wings, and turn to face the pilot. â&#x20AC;˘ Wait until the plane moves by before you start moving again. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t touch the airplanes without the ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; permission. â&#x20AC;˘ Be careful that you do not walk into a propeller or pitot tube or trip over wheels or tie-down ropes. â&#x20AC;˘ Hold small children by the hand to make sure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dart out in front of a moving airplane. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not let your children play with things that can be thrown, such as toy ai planes. If a thrown item hits an airplane, it can damage it. â&#x20AC;˘ If you are looking into an airplane, be careful not to lean against it. â&#x20AC;˘ Be careful about jewelry, watches, belt buckles, cell phones and cameras. These can accidentally scratch or even tear the skin on an aircraft. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not sit on aircraft. â&#x20AC;˘ Heed the instructions of the aircraft marshals and security personnel.

Each year, tools are donated by Snap-On and signed out as needed from the emergency repair kiosk, which is at the approach end of Runway 5. Most of the volunteers are A&P mechanics so they can tell you which tool you need to borrow to take care of the problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tr y to stay away from doing the repairs ourselves, but if the aircraft owner asks, sometimes we will assist,â&#x20AC;?

Tune in to Sun ’n Fun Radio Looking for a way to stay on top of what is happening at Sun ’n Fun during the show? Tune in to Sun ’n Fun Radio on 1510 AM. The radio station will have more than 30 volunteers covering ever y aspect of the fly-in, according to Radio Chairman Dave Shallbetter. “We’ll have updates on news and happenings around the fly-in, great inter views with aviation notables, schedules of events, interviews with sponsors, vendors and guests, live coverage of the daily airshow, and remote broadcasts of the evening programs and select aviation safety seminars from the FAA Production Studios.” Women in Aviation will return this year with its special segment, “Women Shine at Sun ’n Fun.” Also retur ning this year are Jeb Bur nside, Dave Higdon and

Youth Activities The Tom Davis Education Center offers fun, educational opportunities for young aviation enthusiasts. The Youth Activities tent located outside the Davis Center is filled with a variety of activities, where kids can make kites, parachutes, windsocks, and ribs, as well as learn the art of paper airplane making and learn about weather from experts. Coloring booklets will be available for the younger children, while the

Jack Hodgson, the voices of The Uncontrolled Airspace Podcast. They will do two podcasts from the show, one on Tuesday evening and the other on Sunday morning. Other podcasters are returning this year, Shallbetter said, including The Finer Points of Flying with Jason Miller on Wednesday, the station’s first virtual podcast, Airspeed Online with host Steve Force, appearing via the Internet, on Thursday, while the second annual ‘Gathering of Aviation Podcasters’ is slated for Friday. The Pilot’s Flight Podlog with Will Hawking and David Allen is Saturday. The radio station is expanding its Internet presence as well, with updates on its Twitter account, SnFRadio. “The best news is, thanks to a partnership with LiveATC.net, we will be audio streaming Sun ’n Fun Radio,” Shallbetter said. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) will have a variety of animals on hand. New this year are three programs from the FAA especially for middle school and high school students — but younger children can participate, officials said. The programs include “Smart Skies,” which is an air traffic control computer program; weight and balance training; and learning how to pre-flight aircraft. The FAA will have two airplanes at the center for its programs.

Also available will be Kid Air II, a flight simulator. On the center’s back porch, a hot dog lunch will be served for $3 for those who pre-register. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Volunteers prefer parents stay with young children, while older kids — middle school aged and up — can participate in the center’s activities on their own. The Tom Davis Education Center is located near the Florida Air Museum, just past the Pavilion.

Sun ’n Fun Workshops can help you learn all the skills necessary to build your own plane or work on any other project. If you’re a hands-on person or are considering building an aircraft, you’ll want to take part in these sessions as experienced instructors guide you through the techniques for each skill and answer your questions about specific projects. Many of the workshops have been approved by the FAA for credit towards the annual requirements for IA renewal and the A&P Awards Program. To get credit for attending, pick up a time sheet at the information booth and have the workshop instructor sign it. Operating times are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Some workshops operate continuously, while others have scheduled programs. C hec k a t t he w or ks hop information booth for times and workshop locations. Wo r k s h o p s include: Woodwork; Avionics/Electrical; Basic Sheet Metal; Cable Swaging; Composites; Computer Resources; Engines; Fabric Covering; Kit Aircraft Building; Metal Shaping; Propeller Carving; Sport Planes; and Welding, both electric and gas. The free workshops are located in the Central Florida Aerospace Academy and in tents around the Buehler Restoration Center.

Judging airplanes Sun â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Funâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief judge shares the tricks of the trade How do you judge airplanes in six very different categories for a variety of very different awards? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Objectively,â&#x20AC;? says Leonard Kress, chief judge at Sun â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to be subjective, though,â&#x20AC;? he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we follow EAA judging standards.â&#x20AC;? Those standards are outlined in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;scoring decision treeâ&#x20AC;? that leads to scores ranging from zero (major deficiency) to 10 (perfect, impossible to do better). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deficiency is defined as a safety item with potential for catastrophic flight failure,â&#x20AC;? Kress explained, pointing out that very few owners with airplanes in such bad shape ask to be judged. At the other end of the scale, a 10

is utterly flawless, a very difficult level to achieve â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but far from impossible. Most owners who ask to be judged have airplanes that are well above average, generally scoring in the seven (strong show quality) to 10 range. As the judges make their rounds, there is no discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Points arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t awarded by consensus,â&#x20AC;? Kress said, but by each judge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; up to 50 of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; filling out individual score sheets. The scores are added up and compared only after judging is completed. Airplanes are judged in six categories: custom-built, vintage, warbirds, ultralight and light sport, rotorcraft and seaplanes. The first question asked is whether the airplane being looked at is airworthy. If not, it earns a zero and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing more to be done. Assuming it is, however, the next question is whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than average. A no leads to choosing whether it is very crude, crude, functional or average. Each of those terms goes with a successively higher score, from

one to four. An airplane judged to be better than average is considered on yet another set of questions. Is it equal to, or better than, factory new? If not, but of above average craftsmanship, it falls into the five, six or seven scoring level: slightly above average, solidly above, or showing pride of workmanship. If, however, a judge gives a yes answer to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;factory newâ&#x20AC;? question, the next step is the really hard one, Kress said. A choice must be made as to whether the airplane has very fine workmanship but apparent flaws, outstanding workmanship with flaws that are difficult to detect, or is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and this is a 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;flawless in all respects.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes owners will ask judges to critique their airplanes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real can of worms,â&#x20AC;? Kress stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After all, no mother ever had an ugly baby. People put their lives into these thingsâ&#x20AC;? and no judge wants to face a restored airplaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;motherâ&#x20AC;? with a list

of flaws. Take a stroll among the airplanes this week and do your own judging. When the results are printed in the April 18 edition of Sun â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Fun Today, you can compare your conclusions with those of the judges.

All in all, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to see and do at Choppertown. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worth the trek or ride out there, especially this year as Choppertown celebrates its 20th anniversary. The red and yellow trams run out to Choppertown. You can pick up the trams at the Shuttle Depot near the main entrance or at stops near the vintage aircraft area and the seabird area.

If the rotorcraft experience is one youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had, go out there anyway and see how personal the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;personal aircraftâ&#x20AC;? can be.

The Splash-In returns to nearby Lake Agnes in Polk City, adjacent to Fantasy of Flight. “Fly-In volunteers headed by Splash-In Chairman Bob Highley and members of the Sun ’n Fun staff have been working with Kermit Weeks and his team at Fantasy of Flight for the past several months to make this the safest and most positive experience possible,” said Sun ’n Fun President John Burton. “The Lake Agnes location also offers an opportunity for Splash-In participants and their guests to enjoy Fantasy of Flight’s incredible facilities and activities.” The Splash-In takes place Thursday, April 15, and is designed especially for

It takes more than associations speaking up to teach opinion leaders and decision makers about GA. It takes individuals — pilots, mechanics, FBO operators, aviation enthusiasts — stepping up and becoming actively engaged with their community leaders. “As I see it, some of the top issues for the coming year must include protecting our nation’s airports, ensuring that air traffic modernization accounts for the needs of all system users, improving general aviation’s image, and building the pilot population,” said AOPA President and CEO Craig Fuller. “In order to make real progress on these issues, I am asking every one of AOPA’s more than 415,000 members — indeed, all of America’s

pilots — to get personally engaged in protecting and promoting general aviation.” Throughout this year, AOPA will be asking its members to get engaged in support of general aviation. There are literally hundreds of ways to do that. Being more engaged can be as simple as staying informed about the issues that affect your flying and as involved as hosting a major public event. But in between are almost infinite opportunities. Go flying and take a non-pilot friend or colleague with you. Write a letter to the editor responding to a general aviation story, whether it’s good or bad. Write to your elected officials. Ask them

where they stand on general aviation issues. Make a financial contribution to a general aviation cause such as GA Serves America, the AOPA Political Action Committee, or the AOPA Foundation. Join a local pilot group or start one if your airport doesn’t already have one. AOPA is prepared to back up its members as they become more active and engaged, providing tools like a new engagement section of AOPA Online (AOPA.org/Engage), including tips and suggestions on how to get more deeply involved in the future of general aviation. At the same time, AOPA will continue — and even increase — its advocacy for general aviation across a broad front, from addressing a diminishing pilot population to protecting America’s airports to supporting those who support general aviation in Congress. AOPA will also be engaged in a number of other issues, such as air traffic control modernization (known as NextGen), continuing to improve general aviation air safety, and aviation security issues as they affect general aviation pilots and owners. And AOPA will continue to monitor the FAA funding and authorization. While neither authorization bill passed by the House and the Senate contain user fees, Fuller noted, “Bad ideas have a funny way of coming back around in Washington, so I have to believe that sooner or later, this idea will surface again. In the meantime, the worst thing we can do is sit back, congratulate ourselves, and imagine that all our worries are behind us. “Taking action and making a commitment to become more engaged is vital,” concluded Fuller. “Even with our success, I must tell you that we can no longer take for granted that the freedom to fly will be sustained unless we work to defend that freedom we cherish.”

Getting around

The Sun ’n Fun grounds are vast, which means getting around can be tough for some visitors. You may use your own scooter or wheelchair on the grounds, as long as it meets certain requirements. Scooters must be single seat, batter y-powered, with two, three or four wheels, designed for use by a mobility-impaired person. Wheelchairs can be manual or batterypowered. Those using scooters or wheelchairs do not need special credentials or passes to bring their devices onto the Sun ’n Fun grounds. People using scooters and wheelchairs are allowed to go wherever the general public is allowed, which includes the flightline. Sun ’n Fun officials pride themselves on the fact that the grounds are very accessible, but they also realize

Looking for others who own the same aircraft as you? Head to the Type Club Tent, which is next to the Florida Sport Aviation Antique Classic Association building near the Vintage Aircraft Camping Area. Inside the Type Club Tent you will find displays paying homage to various types of aircraft, ranging from Piper Cubs to Mooneys. “We have 14 type clubs that will be represented this year,” says Sharon Trembly, chairman of the Type Club Tent. “The clubs have tables and their members volunteer a few hours at a

they cover a vast area, which is why the Blue Route on the transportation trams will take a person using a wheelchair or scooter along with their family and friends. If you didn’t bring your own or realize once you get here that you should have brought it, you can rent scooters and manual wheelchairs on a daily basis. The rental space is near the Admissions/Registration building in the Main Gate Plaza. Scooters are $60 for the day, while wheelchairs are $20. The Handicap Hospitality ticket windows are located on the west side of the Admissions/Registration building at the Main Gate Plaza. Besides selling admissions tickets, the Handicap Hospitality team will be happy to help with information and questions you have regarding all accessibility ser vices available during the fly-in.

People come from all over the country.” The Type Club Tent is par t social get together, part information exchange. If you have a particular challenge with your aircraft, mention it to someone in the tent. Chances are they can point you in the right direction. Each year Trembly — who is a member of the Cessna 170 Type Club — posts signs outside the tent indicating which type clubs are in attendance.

Hartzell Propeller Inc. has developed an advanced structural composite propeller for aerobatic aircraft using its proprietary ASC-II technology. The new Claw 2.0 propeller recently achieved FAA type certification. The original Claw and the new Claw 2.0 are the only certified advanced composite propellers available for aerobatic use, Hartzell officials note. The propeller has not yet been STC’d on the aircraft; however Hartzell is making the Claw 2.0 propeller available now for Extra 300/330 series aircraft flying in the Experimental category. Airshow performer Michael Goulian (pictured) used an experimental development version of this propeller on his Extra 330SC during the 2009

airshow campaign, for which he was recognized with EAA’s Bill Barber Award for Airshow Showmanship. He will continue using it during the 2010 air show season. “As someone who makes a living flying a high performance aircraft, I need my prop to be safe and reliable 100% of the time,” Goulian said. “Hartzell was always my choice, and with this new prop they haven’t let me down.” Hartzell’s kit for the Extra 300/330s includes the 3-blade propeller and a carbon composite spinner at a special introductor y price of $21,900, with a three-year/1,000-hour warranty and 6-year/ 1,000-hour TBO. Learn more at Hartzell’s booth in Hangar B, Spaces 34-35.

Airguide Publications is launching a new application for Apple’s iPad —Flight Guide iEFB. which has special packages available for both VFR and IFR pilots. Flight Guide iEFB-VFR includes all airport and supplementary information that Flight Guide is known for, and additionally provides sectionals and terminal area charts (TACs) to satisfy FAA flight requirements, company of ficials said. Sectionals and TACs are geo-referenced and can be zoomed in or out using Apple’s standard “pinch & drag” interfaces. Touching an airport on a sectional will bring up that airport’s information including: airport diagrams (with taxiways identified), class B, C and selected D airspace graphics, frequencies (navigation and communication), flight operational information, FBOs (services, location and contact information), fuel prices, food, transportation, lodging and recreational information. A link from the airport information page will take you to that airport on the sectional. The iPad’s built-in GPS will display your location on the sectional or TAC. With an Internet connection, NEXRAD weather will overlay on the sectionals and METAR data will be available on the airport information page. Flight Guide iEFB-VFR

Lyons named ‘Artist in Residence’ Aviation artist Sam Lyons has been named “artist in residence” by Sun ’n Fun Fly-In, Inc. “We’re very pleased to welcome Sam Lyons to this newly created position of Artist in Residence,” said Chairman Bill Eickhoff. “The position is in the process of being defined and we look forward to how the position – and our relationship with Sam – will evolve in the months and years ahead.” “Sam Lyons is one of the most recognized names in aviation, as well as in the international art community,” Eickhoff continued. “We are especially pleased that Sam will be sharing his passion for aviation and his incredible talent with us in this capacity.” Being named Sun ’n Fun’s Artist in Residence comes at a significant time for Lyons since 2010 marks his 25th year as a professional aviation artist. The “Artist” designation also occurs after another major milestone in Lyons’ career: Being inducted into the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame in 2009 – the first artist ever inducted. When Lyons first heard the idea of

being named Artist in Residence, his reaction was instant and enthusiastic. “That’s amazing!” he exclaimed. “I’ve been exhibiting at Sun ’n Fun for more than 20 years and I’m thrilled and proud

sador for promoting the goals of Sun ’n Fun.” Born and raised in Atlanta, L yons credits his father – a B-24 pilot during World War II – with sparking his early interest in aviation. A graduate of Presbyterian College with a degree in biology, Lyons served for two years as an officer in the U.S. Army. He then began teaching at his alma mater, Woodward Academy (Georgia Military Academy). A long time interest and expertise in modeling led Lyons into another career as an owner of a hobby shop called Historical Hobbies. Looking for another challenge, Lyons began to paint. He experimented, searching for a style he could call his own. The result is a detailed and realistic painting style that highlights Lyons’ love of airplanes and flying. His paintings are often mistaken for photographs. Lyons, who is a pilot, and his wife, Mindy, recently moved to Lakeland. To see some of Lyons’ art, check out his exhibit in Hangar A, Spaces 22-23.

Aircraft Spruce celebrates 45 years as the homebuilder’s supermarket Since 1965, when Flo Irwin began cutting up Sitka Spruce in her garage, Aircraft Spruce has been responding to the needs of homebuilders. It began locally, soon took on a national scope and today responds to aircraft builders’ and restorers’ needs from around the globe. Anyone thinking seriously about building an aircraft or bringing an antique back to its former

glory will benefit from the catalog and buying power of Aircraft Spruce. The Aircraft Spruce parts catalog (available in hard copy format, CD, and on-line) details a vast assortment of materials, tools, books, avionics, pilot supplies and hardware. Need plans? Aircraft Spruce sells complete sets of plans for 35 different scratch-build projects and will also sell you

a complete materials package for building that design. Aircraft Spruce has three distribution centers: Corona, Calif., Peachtree City, Ga., and Brantford, Ontario Canada. There are also more than 55 Aircraft Spruce international representatives who can help expedite orders and customs clearance in overseas countries. Find out more at Aircraft Spruce’s exhibit in Hangar B, spaces 4-9.
