How much did you 'donate'?
John 'Lites' Leenhouts, president of the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In told the aviation press on Sunday (closing day) that airshow performers donated $250,000 worth of performances. Lites was a few minutes late to the media briefing because he was, "thanking the performers for their generosity." That got me to thinking, how much do the rest of us who attend the fly-in 'donate'? How much does it cost us all, cumulatively to attend "Spring Break for Pilots". Whether a vendor, pilot attendee or a Florida local, it would be interested to know.
