Sun ’n Fun is offering new ways to experience this year’s Fly-In & Expo, which will be held March 29-April 3 on its campus at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport (LAL) in Florida. Two new VIP Hospitality programs will be made available for the first time during this year’s event that combine the best qualities of membership in an exclusive club with the amenities of a “Skybox” at premier athletic events, according to fly-in officials.
The two new programs are: The “9/27 Circle” which takes its name from the compass headings of Lakeland’s primary east-west runway which serves as the focal point for nearly all Sun ’n Fun flying experiences and The “Flightline Club.”
“Sun ’n Fun’s all-new VIP Hospitality programs have been designed especially for those participants and guests who expect the most out of their fly-in experience,” said President and Convention Chairman John Burton. “Membership in either one of these two new programs puts you “center stage” at one of the world’s premier aviation events, offering the best seats on the Sun ’n Fun campus surrounded by top-notch amenities and VIP hospitality.”
The 9/27 Circle
Members of the 9/27 Circle and their guests will have full access to an air-conditioned luxury chalet at show center with reserved VIP indoor and (shaded) outdoor seating for the entire week of the fly-in. This all-inclusive VIP package includes daily continental breakfast and catered lunch, along with snacks and beverages (chilled sodas, water, beer, wine and select cocktails) throughout the day. The 9/27 Circle facilities will offer an opportunity to meet the day’s celebrity air show performers and to socialize with other aviation notables attending the international event.
“There will be no better vantage point from which to watch Sun ’n Fun’s acclaimed daily air show performances, especially this year’s headliners – the United States Navy’s Blue Angels military jet demonstration team,” Burton added. “The 9/27 Circle offers one of the most exciting and unique ways to entertain business associates, clients, potential clients, family and friends. Those interested should reserve their 9/27 Circle VIP credentials early as only 100 charter memberships will be made available.”
The Flightline Club
The second VIP Hospitality option is appropriately titled “Flightline Club.” Located on the northern edge of the popular Warbird Ramp, the Flightline Club offers an unobstructed view of the flightline activities and daily airshow. Club membership is available for the week or on a daily basis. Members of the Flightline Club will receive free parking in Main Auto Parking (a $5 daily value; available with online purchases only), access to the designated air show seating area and Hospitality Tent, complimentary “Festival Food Service” available throughout the day, and dedicated porta-toilet and hand washing facilities in the VIP area. Membership is limited to only 200 persons per day.
