    Sun n Fun 2014

    Do we have any one from our organization flying to Sun n Fun? I'm planning on flying down and camping from 4-6 April. Any suggestion from someone who has done that before would be appreciated.

    I flew down last year. Make sure you read and understand the procedures. It wasn't very hard, but it certainly helped to review some YouTube video. I really wish I could go this year as I really enjoyed the experience.

    Thanks...I hadn't thought about YouTube. I'll down load the procedures from the site.

    Thanks Rap. I plan on taking my sons with me. Looking forward to a fun camping trip. Hope the weather cooperates.

    Just remember, the other 358 days a year 9L and 27R are really taxiway Alpha. They will have 2 dots on each runway and ask that you land on one while someone else lands on the other. Coming in from the north you will most certainly be directed over the power plant arrival, nothing too difficult or special about it, and everything you need is available on their website (in fact, I downloaded the procedures into this website a couple of years ago).

    Cheapest gas in the area is X04 (Orlando/Apopka) and X23 (Umatilla) at around $4.60. They are only a few miles apart, north of Lake Apopka and X04 is 15/33 and X23 is 1/19, so whichever the wind favors is where I usually go for gas. No food though. ASOS for both is available from KLEE on 134.32. Don't even think about taxing across KLAL for the self-serve, so make sure you have enough fuel to get in and out. I would not plan on flying south for close by fuel, like KGIF or KBOW because they share some of the same airspace, many people park their planes there and commute, so it could be crowded, and frankly you would have to go way out of your way to get around the KLAL mess once you did get fuel. X60 (Williston) has relatively cheap gas and a restaurant on the field if you want to go a little further north out of the KLAL airspace and get something to eat.
