The SUN ‘n FUN workshops have enjoyed a popularity with builders that is unmatched by other Venues.
All the workshops are staffed by a combination of amateur and professional instructors with extensive experience in the subjects they present. Many of our instructors hold FAA Airframe and Power Plant Mechanic ratings and or have extensive experience with vendors supplying the aviation community.
All of our volunteers are dedicated to the education of Homebuilders to aid in the safe and reliable construction of all forms of Experimental and Amateur Built Aircraft. Most of our volunteer instructors are builders themselves and enthusiastically share their experience with novice builders.
SUN ‘n FUN has made the commitment and is working to “Build a Brighter Future through Aviation.” Expanded education opportunities and youth workshops create learning environments on the SUN ‘n FUN campus in which children can thrive. Age specific activities have been designed to allow students of all ages to explore their interests in the world around them. Florida has a rich history of aerospace professionals and educators who are committed to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education programs and we’ve invited them to join us during the Annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In and Expo. We believe that the diverse disciplines of the aerospace industry provide a wonderful platform for STEM education
