As the show draws to a close, we too are concluding our coverage of Sun 'n Fun 2018 with a set of snapshots photographer Mariano Rosales took while roaming the grounds.

In upcoming issues of Kitplanes Magazine we will have detailed articles about the planes we flew, products we tested, and the interesting people we met. Our intrepid reporters will ply the grounds of Oshkosh in July, so if there is something you'd like us to cover there, let us know in the comments below.

  1. For Oshkosh: new developments in 3 axis aircraft kit availability and build difficulty for market range $50k and under.

    Really love that scarlet 5v avenger. nice photo!

  2. The Paradigm Aerobatic Team was the most unique airshow performance I've seen in years. Great job!

  3. You seemed to be as fascinated by the doings at Paradise City as I was. Even though I own an RV-14A, I loved watching all the ultralights, LSA's & gyros taking off & landing on the grass strip: like sailing in the air - letting it all hang out - most birdlike.
