Signature Flight Support, a BBA Aviation company, is proud to both sponsor and exhibit at the 44th Annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-in and Expo, April 10-15, 2018 in Lakeland, Florida as part of its ongoing effort to support local communities and encourage youth to get excited about aviation.
Signature Flight Support encourages attendees to visit its booth (A-046) to receive giveaways, utilize its photo booth, and meet its team, who can provide information to those interested in getting involved in the aviation industry.
SUN ‘n FUN is one of the aviation community’s top events of the year, ranking amongst the ten largest, most entertaining air shows in general aviation. The event generates $430,000 in scholarship funds annually for students in Polk County, Florida entering an Aerospace Industry career to cover the cost of flight lessons and/or college tuition for four years. Additionally, it is the largest fundraiser for the Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE), a campus dedicated to aerospace and STEM education.
“Signature is thrilled to be a part of this event and to connect with members of both the aviation community and the Lakeland community. We are especially excited for the opportunity to share the world of aviation with young enthusiasts in our continuing efforts to encourage youth to get interested in a future career in aviation,” said Patrick Sniffen, Vice President of Marketing for Signature Flight Support.
With upwards of 200,000 guests, exhibitors, volunteers, sponsors, performers and aviators expected to attend, aviation enthusiasts of all ages are encouraged to come view the airshows, exhibits, hands-on workshops and displays of vintage aircraft.
Signature Flight Support proudly supports general aviation, including aviators flying in to Sun ‘n Fun, via its Signature BlueSky Program for Avgas aviators, which offers general aviation the opportunity to earn rewards with every Avgas purchase, its Signature TailWins program, which offers pilots and aviators the ability to earn 10 points per gallon of Avgas purchased at any of Signature’s U.S. locations, and finally, via its 13 self-serve Avgas locations and more than 100 locations throughout the U.S. dedicated to providing safe, secure world-class flight support.
As one of the top ten largest air shows in general aviation, Sun ‘n Fun has a $64,000,000 direct and indirect economic impact on the I-4 corridor in Central Florida.
