Designed to educate and inspire, SUN ‘n FUN is the second-largest event of its kind in the world, and the attendees had the chance to meet the race pilots in person, watch as they show how to fly the track correctly and incorrectly, learn about scoring, rules and timing, and check out the latest look in raceplanes.
Once they had a taste of the real action – fans were encouraged to become a race pilot themselves with the opportunity try a virtual reality simulator and discover just how exhilarating flight at 230mph (370kmh) with 10Gs can be.
Jim DiMatteo, Race Director for the Red Bull Air Race, added, “The aviation community here in SUN N’ FUN love anything to do with flying and planes. And today we were honoured to demonstrate to the crowd what we do in our sport. We have a fast-growing fan base in the US, and our American pilots certainly showed what our World Championship can do.”
