Florida Jets is one of the most exciting R/C Aviation events on the planet. FJ features the epitome of technology in air frame construction and power plant, and has the highest level of pilot proficiency of any radio control model aviation discipline.
Approximately 170 pilots from all corners of the globe will fill the skies of Lakeland with 200 mph jet replicas, many measuring over 10 feet. Especially exciting is the 50 pound, 10 foot wingspan A-10 Warthog of Desert Storm fame and the 9 foot long Boeing F-18. All of the jets are powered by real turbo-jet engines.
Florida Jets is held at Paradise Field located on the southernmost portion of Lakeland Linder Airport. Enter through gate #36 at 3875 W. Pipkin Road, Lakeland 33811 (just west of the GEICO Bldg and south of the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus).
