Need a part?

Sun ’n Fun Today -

March 27-April 1, 2012

Check out the Parts Exchange in Hangar E Do you need a particular part for that restoration project in your hangar? Is the sport of the hunt for that item part of the fun for you? If the answer is yes, then you should stop by the Parts Exchange (PX), located in Hangar E. The PX opens to the public at 9 a.m., Tuesday, March 27. Hours of operation through April 1 are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sales stop at 12 noon, Sunday, April 1. Items for sale come from individuals and aviation businesses from around the country. All items must be related to aviation. Traditionally that means you’ll find everything from parts to books and tools at the tent. State law prohibits the acceptance of tires or batteries. In previous years, misfortunes caused by hurricanes and other weather-related events boosted the number of damaged aircraft, which meant a wide selection of airframes and parts, according to PX volunteers. All transactions are cash only, as there is no way to run credit cards at the Parts Exchange. However, there are a number of cash machines on the show grounds.

In previous years, people who were after larger ticket items, such as part of an airframe that cost $300, made daily trips

to the cash machines until they had the right amount of cash to make the purchase, according to volunteers.

Consignors willing to take a personal check will make a notation on the tag affixed to the item, volunteers noted.
