Sun 'n Fun 2016 Innovation Preview Debuts!!!

Surprising and Impressive Line-Up Speaks Well For Today's Innovative Aero-Mindset

Better than we hoped for... that's best way to describe the results of our first Sun 'n Fun Innovation Preview... over an hour of aero-innovative disruption at its best.


And as a lead-in for the next rendition of the HIGHLY successful Oshkosh/AirVenture Innovation Preview, we couldn't be more excited for the future of this programming concept... especially since it is about to become the standard bearer for an event/program that's been long-awaited, and is now ready for action.

OK... enough of the tease... as we'll have concrete announcements after we finish a few meetings at Lakeland -- and we promise some exciting stuff, indeed. Suffice it to say, though, that the news-drought that used to typify Lakeland and other events is apparently over and the very strong evidence of aggressive new innovation is too great to ignore.

That said; the staff of the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In and the Aero-News Network are pleased to announce that we are now releasing, the latest in a novel Aero-TV/Airborne program designed to draw attention to the most innovative and aggressively oriented companies in the aviation universe -- and most particularly, those with REAL news to impart this coming week.

ANN and SnF joined together to present the "Sun 'n Fun Innovation Preview," (which we call the "SFIP", for short), to highlight the incredibly innovative and news-making products that provide the 'BUZZ factor' at Sun 'n Fun 2016. Not only have we got the BUZZ nailed down, we are going to let you ALL in on it EARLY, today/Saturday, April 2nd… Before the Sun 'n Fun gates are officially opened.

The SFIP has allowed dozens of innovators to work with us over the past few weeks to produce informational video presentations with our media staff. As a result, you'll see a comprehensive program containing nearly 20 short, 3 to 4 minute, online media presentations that will give you a glimpse of what is really new and innovative at Sun 'n Fun. The video presentations are carefully managed to provide useful information about ground-breaking products that go beyond normal sales hype.

The roster is a veritable 'Who's Who' of aviation innovators... nearly 20, in all... Aeromarine LSA, Airtime Aircraft Inc., Avilution, Best Tugs, CloudAhoy, Guardian Avionics, Lancair Int'l, LightSpeed Aviation, Piper Aircraft, PS Engineering, SAFE Toolkit, Sonex Aircraft, MGL Avionics, TruTrak, Wipaire -- and much more!

ANN CEO, Jim Campbell, provides just a few opening remarks... and from there, the program races along from news-maker to news-maker. For aviation to shine, you have to put a light on it…and that's what we're doing at Sun 'n Fun this year with our Sun 'n Fun Innovation Preview -- and there are even greater programs on the drawing board.

And we also hope you'll pass the word around about the SFIP... Later on, the programs will be archived at SnF, EAA, ANN, YouTube, Vimeo and dozens of our other media partners -- as well as repurposed in a number of ways to provide the best possible programming far into the future.

Programming options are now available (or should be within a few hours) at,,, or, for the first webcasts of Sun 'n Fun Innovation Preview 2016.

ANN thanks all the SFIP participants, and the staff of Sun 'n Fun... who really helped make this such a success... with special kudos to John 'Lites' Leenhouts, Jennifer Olivier, and Greg Gibson. And yes, we all worked together very well.... Imagine that!
