A pilot briefing will be held at 3 p.m. on Tuesday April 4, in the Showcase Briefing building near the Antique Headquarters building.
Specific classes will be determined by participation. This year’s event will be limited to aircraft capable of 120 KIAS or more cruising speed due to time constraints. These constraints limit the number of entries as well, according to SUN ‘n FUN officials.
