Sun & Fun 2012

The Lakeland airshow showed signs of an improving economy, but with some new realities setting in. Both Cirrus and Mooney did not attend, and the warbird parking was half empty, compared to years past. Fuel costs are having their effects. The good thing was a good crowd, and busy trade booths.
Meanwhile the Bahamas booth was busy, and many great new programs are being launched to encourage pilots to make the jump over the water. In addition to a $300. fuel rebate, the Bahamas are offering an additional $150. for every 2 extra nights. That’s $600. back for just a 6 night stay. With some planning that could be for and fuel for the whole trip.
Wed night was a cookout at Michael Z’s place, just down the road from the airport. Unlimited conch salad and Kalik beers kept everyone happy.



  1. I love the Bahamas! I went there last year and I had a great time. Unfortunately, it was a long plane ride!

  2. Yeah, but that extra few hours from Florida, brings a world of difference!
