Get ready for "Sun & Fun" Fly-In at Pattaya Airpark 2006. This year ADMISSION IS 80 Baht (and 40 Baht if you wear a Yellow Shirt) for some people. Pattaya Airpark is located 2 NM East of Ocean Marina (15km South of Pattaya) right next to Phoenix golf club. Pattaya Airpark invites flying clubs from all over Thailand and foreign aircraft from all over Asia to fly-in and attend this year's event. firstname.lastname@example.org
|There will be an aircraft display featuring aircraft from Tango Squadron, 604 Squadron, Thai Navy, Thai Army, CATC, SGA, Forego Aviation Club, Thai Flying Club, River Kwai Flying Club, Chiang Mai Flying Club, CMT Flying Club, Eastern Flying Club, Ayutthaya Flying Club, Aerothai, Police Airwing, Bang Chong Flying Club, Klang Flying Club, ATS Aircraft, Sri Racha, Pattaya Airpark, Bang Bung.||
|Activities at Sun & Fun may include: "Penalty Kicks" - soccer goal shooting by Paramotor, Spot landing competitions, Flour bombing, and a very special "Coast Rally & Treasure Hunt." Aircraft and Ultralights will fly a route from Pattaya Airpark along the coast of Jomtien and Pattaya in search of photographic images that they have been given just prior to taking off. Some are easy, and some are hard. The aircraft and crew that spot the most features on the ground will be the winner. No circle-turns are allowed (spotters will be placed on the ground), so aircraft have to look carefully and fly the course along the beach then back to the airport.|
|Trophies will be awarded to the winners of the aviation activities. In addition, there will be a MISS FLY-IN beauty contest and awards presented for the furthest aircraft visitor, the best turned out aircraft, the best designed panel, the best antique aircraft, the best pilot uniform and many other prizes to be announced in due course.|
|Sight-seeing flights may be offered in the O-1 and T-41 aircraft and in the CATC Engstrom helicopter with proceeds to benefit the "Sai Jai Thai" Foundation. Skydiving and Aerobatic demonstrations will be performed. Hopefully, David will bring his balloon to grace the skies as he did last year at Oshtak. There will be Radio-controlled aircraft and helicopter competitions and over 100 booths with food, toy aviation models, all flying clubs represented, Thai Tourism Authority, Lufthansa Vintage cars, Aviation Groundschools, Radio-controlled aircraft sales, Propeller manufacturers, John Deere tractors, 4 wheel drive motor show, Harley Davidson Motorcycle show, Food and Beverages, Beer gardens, Look tung dancing, Flight simulator game shows and demonstrations, Plastic model aircraft, Nautical and sailing supplies, a Forum on fabric covering, homebuilding your own aircraft, metal sheet work, carbon fiber construction and just about anything else you can think off. This is it - General Aviation and Flying Fun in the Sun. If you thought Oshtak was fun last year, then you won't be disappointed by Fun & Sun 2004.|
|Foreign aircraft should fill out their Foreign Aircraft Flight Clearance Request and Letter of Invitation and fax to Nawaporn at Thailand fax -- 66 + 2 + 4381139.
