    Here's Sun-N-Fun's COVID policies. One would imagine AirVenture's will be similar, unless it's verified that the pandemic has been beaten down sufficiently.

    Well, it's probably less for the kids involved than for the older folks (mostly retired) who teach at the sessions. It's hard to keep socially distant in a classroom environment where one's teaching...
