Join us in developing your future!

Sponsoring Project STRATOS is a direct way for your company to help SUN ‘n FUN “Create a Brighter Future through Aviation”. Our primary missionhere at SUN ‘n FUN is to introduce and guide as many young people as possible into the rewarding opportunities a career in aviation can offer. Your contribution to Project: STRATOS will help us in that mission by providingvaluable funding that will help us continue to develop your future employees, clients, and stockholders.

This year, the program will challenge students from Polk County junior classmen in the form of an aerospace-themed essay contest administered by their teachers. Three primary topics will be available for the students to choose from, with subtopics in each: Historic Aircraft, Events in Aviation, and People in Aviation.

From these participants, 10 students will be selected and awarded the distinction of being STRATOS Squadron Ambassadors to the SnF Fly-In. The winning essay will be published in the Fly-In Official Souvenir Program Guide, along with the winner’s photo and bio.

Funds from this year’s Project STRATOS campaign will go towards facilities and technology infrastructure improvements to the Florida Air Museum, its surrounding grounds and structures. Right now, the museum is undergoing a transformation from being a history center into a state-of-the-art learning experience as part of the newly named Aerospace Center for Excellence (A.C.E). STEM-based education stations are being added now that will allow students to interact and participate in real world environments that immerse them in the subject and enhance their understanding through hands-on applications.

The seven buildings that form the A.C.E. campus here on the grounds at SUN ‘n FUN are being painted and branded with new signage, a new logo, and a coordinated outreach effort to put a face on what is already a very successful program. The Central Florida Aerospace Academy (a Polk County Public High School Career Academy), Buehler Restoration Skills Center, Tom Davis Education Center, Piedmont Hangar, Crossfield Classroom Building, the Florida Air Museum, and Museum Pavilion all now form a combination of formal aerospace education and classroom extensions that are available to students from all over the world. Our year-round activities include week long aviation camps for six weeks during the summer, the annual Wings and Things Youth Aerospace Weekend, and ongoing STEM-tasticEducational programs.

Our facelift and re-imagined branding will continue this fantastic work and open doors to new funding and participation from higher education institutions, technology employers, and other critical elements in the aviation sector. Students in our programs are getting a huge head start toward becoming the next generation of pilots, mechanics, and other aviation support personnel.
