& Make A Difference Today!

For SUN ‘n FUN and the Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) our success depends on the passion of volunteers to share their experience, skills and abilities of all kinds. What began as a small gathering of pilots over four decades ago, SUN ‘n FUN has dramatically grown, hosting events year-round on our Expo Campus with proceeds benefiting ACE. Due in large part to the dedication of our volunteers, ACE has emerged as a nationally recognized leader in STEM-related and aerospace education through our various learning centers, outreach programs, summer camps and scholarships aimed at preparing students for tomorrow’s aerospace challenges. 

You don’t need to be a Jet Pilot or Rocket Scientist to make an impact! Our volunteers come from all walks of life and have talents of all kinds including:

  • Administrators
  • Airplane Mechanics
  • Carpenters
  • Educators
  • Electricians
  • Event Planners
  • Gardeners
  • IT Specialists
  • Office Support
  • Painters
  • Photographers
  • Plumbers
  • Pilots…of course!
  • Welders

Become a SUN ‘n FUN Fly-In Volunteer!

Join the team of 3,500 volunteers that ensure the annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo is a fundraising success. Share your talents, interests and time while making new friends. Depending on the number of hours served, volunteers are eligible to receive special awards as well as an invitation to the Tail Dragger Party, a celebration of the efforts of all the Expo volunteers. Returning volunteers are eligible for free camping during the event.

What are your interests?  Do you like working with people, does working outside have an appeal?  Would working around aircraft or on the airshow team be a dream come true?  Are you a behind-the-scene kind of volunteer, do you like working with kids… is education your thing?  We even have a few jobs that come with air conditioning.  Join us and have the time of your life!

Once your application is received we will begin the placement process.  Chairmen who are in need of volunteers who meet with your desired volunteer goals will be provided your contact information.  Your volunteer efforts will be coordinated through a particular chairman and/or our Volunteer office.  Please contact Robin McFarland, Director of Volunteers – 863-904-4044 for more information.
