SUN ‘n FUN will be held April 7-15 in Lakeland, FL.  SUN ‘n FUN is the 2nd largest fly-in, air show, industry tradeshow, and aviation event in the nation – and it's right here in Lakeland Florida. The size of this event requires hundreds of volunteers, and that's where CAP comes in to help make it the popular and successful show that it is.  Civil Air Patrol will have hangar duty 7-9 April, and will work the air show 10-15 April.  REGISTER NOW TO COME OUT AND SEE WARBIRDS, F-16'S, F-18'S, THE AIR FORCE THUNDERBIRDS AND MANY, MANY MORE!  THERE WILL BE TIME ON THE FLIGHTLINE, AIRCRAFT TOURS, MILITARY MEET AND GREETS AND FUN WITH THE ROYAL AIR FORCE CADETS. 

CAP provides Emergency Service and operations support. Aerospace education is abundant in the hundreds of seminars, hands on activities, and aerospace related vendors.  Under the CAP corporate mission, members will be in the center of the action participating in flightline duties, demonstrating Cadet Programs and ES activities at the recruiting booths and static display of CAP aircraft, assisting the FAA, and helping with crowd control in vendor hangars.  In addition, there are exciting cadet special activities, time to see the airshow, attend forums, or visit vendor exhibits.
