If you’re involved in aviation in any way or happen to live in Central Florida, then you probably know the SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In and Expo. Historically recognized around the world with monikers like “Aviation’s Season Opener” and “Spring Break for Pilots”, SUN ‘n FUN is well known for being the first must-do show of the year for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Over 200,000 gather annually at the Lakeland-Linder Regional Airport (KLAL) for incredible flight displays, shopping overload at over 500 exhibitors and vendors, plus forums, workshops, famous food and evening entertainment all served up with a generous helping of good old-fashioned Southern hospitality.
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin – (July 11, 2016) – The House of Representatives on Monday passed a bill that extends funding for the FAA through September 2017 and – in an another step forward for a long-awaited breakthrough – included language to reform the current third-class medical certification system.
The dashboard progress continued through this last month, as the deadline for shipping our dash display to AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin (July 25-31) steadily approached. The seats frames were purchased through Lancair, a well known aircraft company with a 19G (nineteen times the weight of gravity) tested seat. This was then shipped off to Stitch Craft Upholstery in Redmond, Oregon, where Casey began to design our custom seat. He recently showed us a work in progress (see image below), and the seats are now nearly done, covered in black and tan leather.
Aerospace Center for Excellence will host Unmanned and Sunny on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at Aerospace Discovery at the Florida Air Museum, located on the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus 4175 Medulla Rd., Lakeland, FL.
