2019 Airshow Guide: SUN ‘n FUN and AERO Friedrichshafen

As the first signs of spring begin to emerge from winter in the U.S., we’re reminded that the annual aviation fly-in, airshow and exhibition season follows not too far behind. The longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures mean more flying, and more importantly, more aviation events. We’re kicking off the 2019 season at SUN ’n FUN in Lakeland, Florida, and AERO Friedrichshafen in Germany.

SUN n FUN International Fly-In and Expo — April 2-7, 2019

The largest annual convention in Florida and second-largest event of its kind in the world — SUN ’n FUN means airshow season has officially arrived in the United States.

Our aviation team will be on hand showcasing everything our general aviation product line has to offer. Attendees can learn about our broad range of ADS-B solutions, upgrade solutions for certificated aircraft such as our new G3X Touch for certificated piston singles, GPS 175/GNX 375 navigators, TXi series flight displays and much more.

Plus, TeamX — our group of experimental aircraft engineers, builders and pilots — will be highlighting the latest advancements to our line of products for experimental/light sport aircraft, including G3X Touch.

During the show, our experts will be presenting daily seminars (April 2-6). Located in tent N11 between Hangar D and the flight line, aircraft owners, pilots and enthusiasts can learn about topics ranging from flying with Garmin Pilot to a getting full avionics upgrade for their airplane.
