The 45th annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In and Expo was a RECORD BREAKER! As we finalize our numbers, we wanted to take a moment to THANK all the attendees, volunteers, sponsors, aerobatic performers, military demonstration teams, exhibitors, and vendors that enabled our fundraising event to once again be a huge success. Our theme this year of First in Fun // Fast in Flight was experienced by all and is reflected in the results that we’ve gathered so far. SUN ‘n FUN Fly-In, Inc. will make a formal statement in coming days.

The SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In and Expo is the largest fundraising event for the Aerospace Center for Excellence, both 501c3 non-profit organizations. To further make our mission of engaging, educating, and accelerating the next generation of aerospace professionals, the SUN ‘n FUN announced this past week that the 46th edition of the annual Fly-In will get a new name! In 2020, the event will become the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo! We have a new logo and new title, but our traditions and culture will never change. Now, our mission of education for the tens of thousands of young people reached through the Aerospace Center for Excellence is now reflected in the name of our primary fundraising event.

Thank you again and we look forward to your continued support so mark your calendar for the 46th Annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo March 31st – April 5th, 2020 and see why “The Sky is Just the Beginning!”
