Preliminary Figures Show An Increase In Flight Hours In 2021 And Into 2022

Fatal amateur-built aircraft accidents remained under the historic average over the 12-month period ending in September 2022, but the Experimental Aircraft Association notes that an uptick over the previous year’s total shows that focused efforts to enhance safety even further remain essential.

Classic Aero-TV: Sun ‘N Fun Reports Biggest And Safest Year Yet In 2021

From 2021 (YouTube Version): ANN Talks With John ‘Lites’ Leenhouts, President & CEO, Sun ‘n Fun

“We truly believed that we would have a reduced crowd, by a substantial number, we estimated a 25% reduction in participation and attendance, and boy were we wrong. They came out in droves. It was a gigantic, massive onslaught of humanity coming to enjoy the aviation experience. As we approached the fly in, we realized our advanced ticket sales were skyrocketing,” says Leenhouts. “We had to really quickly configure for a larger participation than we ever envisioned.
