Article by Mike Whaley
Sun 'N Fun 2004 is still a few days away, but we're already geared up for it! We've been spending weeks making preparations... it's a lot of work to get the whole company ready to move operations over there for almost two weeks, but we wouldn't miss it for the world! The Fly-In officially begins on Tuesday the 13th and runs through Monday the 19th, but we arrive several days in advance to begin the process of setting up the tent and getting the campsite organized, which will be our "home away from home" for the next week and a half.

It will be exciting... we will have the Pitts Model 14 factory prototype there (with the wings on - see our new Project Log section for details!) It looks like a biplane now, though there is of course a lot of work left. Curtis plans on joining us for some of the time. We also will have our factory Skybolt there, as well as the popular "cutaway" M14 radial engine and other displays.

All in all, we anticipate a really great show. We will be taking a lot of photos and making every effort to upload them every day along with some descriptions of the day's interesting stories. SNF is always a sensory overload experience, with many friends old and new to catch up with, many great aircraft to see, many vendors to check out, forums to attend, etc. We stay very busy, but we're going to try hard to bring the best of our experience to you via this website as it happens. If you can't make it to Lakeland in person, then please stay tuned and check back here often to see what you're missing!
