The annual SUN ‘n FUN Int’l Fly-In & Expo was held earlier this month, from April 5th through 10th in Lakeland, Florida. As an Authorized Pilatus Sales & Service Center, Epps Aviation was thrilled to return to this fantastic gathering to exhibit the 2016 Pilatus PC-12NG.
SUN ‘n FUN was created in 1974 by a small group of dedicated individuals with jobs in aviation. Held every April, this expo is now the the second largest event of its kind in the world, and is also Florida’s largest annual convention. The activities are spread out over six days and 2,200 acres, and include: jet teams, aerospace exhibits, educational forums, aircraft static displays, daily and evening airshows, a Veterans’ plaza, and Women in Aviation arenas.
The mission of SUN ’n FUN is to “preserve and enhance the future of flight through world-class events, inspiring and educating people of all ages.” SUN ‘n FUN seeks to respect and honor the past, ensure quality before quantity, and contribute to the communities it serves. Our fixed-base operation is proud to hold to very similar principles and beliefs, which is why we count it such a privilege to team up with SUN ’n FUN every spring.
At Epps Aviation, we relish every opportunity to meet others in aviation or those who have an affinity for the aviation industry. It’s always a pleasure to get together with fellow enthusiasts and discuss charter services, aircraft sales, and more, and this SUN ‘n FUN event was no exception. Our Pilatus sales team had a great time at this year’s festivities, and we’re already looking forward to 2017’s event!
