Sometimes a vital point is lost in the excitement and spectacle of the Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in and Expo, and that’s the fact that this entire event is the biggest fundraiser for the most successful aviation education initiative in the nation: the Aerospace Center for Excellence. The money from every exhibitor, from every sponsor, and yes, from every single wristband sold, goes to support this most worthy of charities: the future of aviation in America.

While you’re out wandering around in the heat, admiring (or drooling on) the marvelous aircraft and aviation “stuff” out there at the expo, think about how you can go a little further to support the young men and women at ACE, the Aerospace Center for Excellence, and get something tangible in return. Sun ‘n Fun offers three upgraded amenities to thank our generous donors and supporters.

First, there’s Preferred Airshow Seating, in front of the announcer’s stand. For not many dollars, you can do a lot better than standing in the crowd: Preferred Airshow Seating offers seats with a great view of the action, private restrooms, and ice cold water. Inure at the Preferred Airshow Seating window in front of the announcer’s stand.

Next, for those in a position to support ACE a bit further, there’s the 9/27 Club. Located on the warbird ramp at the flight line, the 9/27 Club offers gourmet chef-prepared breakfast and lunch each day of the Fly-In, with dinner on Wednesday and Saturday. You’ll dine in air-conditioned comfort, with a different menu each day, plenty of soft drinks, as well as beer and wine for those so inclined. Your 9/27 Club pass also includes private VIP parking with continual shuttle service to and from the flight line, private restrooms, and tasty treats between meals. Daily and weekly prices are available on the Sun ‘n Fun web site at

Finally, Sun ‘n Fun offers its largest individual donors and corporate sponsors the ultimate in luxury at an airshow: The ACE Ambassador Flight Deck. Our Ambassadors enjoy a front row view of the airshow from comfy couches and armchairs in the air-conditioned comfort of a private club, where snacks and beverages are available all day. The Ambassadors can entertain business and personal guests, get private transportation around the grounds, and basically enjoy all the hospitality that Sun ‘n Fun can provide to its most significant supporters: the ACE Ambassadors. To become an ACE Ambassador, or for further information, contact Holly Parrish, Sun ‘n Fun’s Director of Development, through the web site.

You may be thinking “Hey, Carl, isn’t it a bit late to take advantage of these amenities tonight?” Well, it’s never too late to support such a great cause and such a wonderful program. The Sun ‘n Fun website always accepts tax-deductible donations, and when you’re thinking about your trip to Sun ‘n Fun 2020, you might consider whether an upgraded hospitality amenity and a larger role in supporting the Aerospace Center for Excellence will be in your plans for next year.
